Match Funding is Back

You voted. We listened. Match Funding is back!

The People's Vote

97% of you voted yes to keep Match FundingFor the last two years, we’ve brought reading into the heart of schools through our Match Funding scheme. We’ve matched what you spent pound-for-pound, doubling your book-buying power and filling your shelves with quality books and resources.  

Last year, we expanded the scheme to include every UK school, and in July we asked you to tell us if you wanted it to continue for 2019-2020.

A whopping 97% of you voted yes!


So, for September 2019, Match Funding is back! And that’s not all… it’s easier and better than ever!

We spent the summer talking to teachers and librarians and you gave us some great feedback – thank you! We’ve taken your great advice on board and made Match Funding simpler than ever…

Whatever you spend with BookLife – we will pay half your bill.

How Match Funding works


That’s it! From September 2019, you can split the bill with us – no minimum spend, no maxiumum order, no limit to the number of times you can claim. We still take purchase orders (so your finance department will love us too) and you can order online or over the phone with one of our CRM team. We’ve even taken our half out before you start – so there are no codes, no two-part orders, and no fuss! The price you see is the price you pay!

You can download yours here and check it out! We’ve got a great new look and loads more brilliant books for you to browse.
