Finances and fundraising
Find out how we raised and spent money in 2021-22 to support children and families.
During the year, we raised £11.1m in funding from various sources and spent £11.6m, including a drawdown from our reserves. The chart below shows how we spent the funds to support reading for different age groups.
For every £1 we spent, 92.9p went on supporting reading and 7.1p went on fundraising and governance.
From marathon walks to book clubs, virtual walks and everything in between – fundraising is a great way to bring people together and have fun, while doing something amazing.
Here are some fundraising highlights:
Pyjamarama raised £141,767. Across the country, 3,947 schools, nurseries, parents, carers, childminders, out-of-school clubs and libraries enjoyed stories and rhymes in their PJs to raise much-needed funds for BookTrust.
We are so grateful to every donor, fundraiser and supporter. It is your incredible kindness that makes our work possible. Please help us get more children reading by becoming a BookTrust Friend or making a one-off donation.
