Ways to support

Without our supporters and donors there would be no young people giving vital help to pupils in school, and no skills and careers development for our inspirational volunteers. Could you join us in turning around thousands more young lives? We customise every partnership to deliver on our shared goals.

National Leadership Partner (£250,000)

Lend your time, expertise and resources to help narrow the attainment gap. These investments can take many forms and can be allocated to initiatives that align with your priorities, to advance both your goals and our own.

Strategic Partner (£50,000 - £100,000)

Building a strong City Year UK requires investment in our core activities including technology, recruitment, public affairs, leadership development and impact evaluation. The partnership would allow us to learn from and engage with you.

Team Partner (£75,000)

This is a unique opportunity to engage with our volunteers and schools. Your investment would support a school team of young people and give you the opportunity to engage employees and have an impact on the local community.

Enrichment Partner (£10,000 - £25,000)

Support a team to deliver projects outside their regular school activities. It could include breakfast and after-school clubs or other contributions to creating a positive learning environment for pupils growing up in disadvantaged communities.

Red Jacket Society (£5,000)

The red jacket is a little bit of magic – turning our volunteers into pupils’ very own superheroes. The Red Jacket Society is a community of philanthropic individuals and families who believe in that magic.

"It is inspirational to see how these young people have devoted their time and energy to such a worthwhile cause and are equipping themselves with bankable life skills. I found the mentorship process as much of a development opportunity as I hope my mentee did!"
