Board Donations are paid to the Board and help fund the education, including special character features, that is over and above a standard education funded by the Government. This includes things like handwork and woodwork, class plays, festivals, eurythmy, class projects, therapies, learning support assistants and extra teaching staff above entitlement from the Government.
