Fundraising

We Are Writers is not only a brilliant way to inspire children to write, but it’s also a great way to raise funds – and earn free books and resources – for your school. For every We Are Writers order, you’ll earn Scholastic Rewards which can be used on over 3000 titles in our brand new Scholastic Shop.



Running We Are Writers as a standalone project

If you choose to run We Are Writers as a standalone project (i.e. not related to your Scholastic Book Fair), you will earn 20% of your order total back in Scholastic Rewards.

Here’s an example of how much in Scholastic Rewards you could earn:

Number of
books
Cost at £5.99
per copy

Rewards rate
Scholastic
Rewards earned
50 £299.50 20% £59.90
100 £599.00 20% £119.80
200 £1,198.00 20% £239.60
300 £1,797.00 20% £359.40

But that’s not all. The set price of a We Are Writers book is £5.99, however you can choose to sell the book to parents at a higher price, for example £7.99, and use it to fundraise for your school.

Here’s an example of how much you could raise for your school:

200 £1,198.00 £7.99 £1,598.00 £400.00
300 £1,797.00 £7.99 £2,397.00 £600.00


So, if you ordered 200 We Are Writers books and sold them to parents at £7.99, you would earn £239.60 in Scholastic Rewards and £400 in cash for your school! Please note: Scholastic Rewards are only earned on the £5.99 portion, not your chosen sell-on price.



Running We Are Writers with your Scholastic Book Fair

You can also choose to run We Are Writers in conjunction with a Scholastic Book Fair where you will earn 60% in Scholastic Rewards on every book you sell. In this instance, the price of a We Are Writers book is set at £5.99 and must be sold to parents at this price.

Here’s an example of how much in Scholastic Rewards you could earn through your Scholastic Book Fair:

Number of
books
Cost at £5.99
per copy
Scholastic
Rewards rate
Scholastic
Rewards earned
50 £299.50 60% £179.70
100 £599.00 60% £359.40
200 £1,198.00 60% £718.80
300 £1,797.00 60% £1078.20

Please note that this example only shows the amount of Scholastic Rewards that could be earned at a Scholastic Book Fair by running We Are Writers and does not include the further amounts that would be earned from children’s book sales.
