There are many ways for individuals and businesses to support the initiative. A tax deductible gift commitment of £15,000 will fund an Events Management scholarship of £5,000 per annum awarded over three years of the Scholar’s degree programme. Your support would fund activities that directly benefit the students. Universities have exempt charity status, which means you may be able to take advantage of tax-effective giving as a private individual or corporate donor.
While financial support is vital, it cannot on its own deliver the full benefits that disadvantaged students can gain from higher education – we hope that supporters would also play an active role in the recipients’ development.
Companies that are interested in pledging and making a positive, long-term impact to diversity and inclusion in the industry can contact Gabby Austen-Browne at firstname.lastname@example.org or Robert Kenward at email@example.com for more information.
