How to give

Your contribution can make a real difference to young people living in poverty in the UK. There are a number of ways for you to help us to move the needle on society’s toughest problem. We will make your money work harder and you will be amongst the leading donors in the UK, funding lasting social change through the power of venture philanthropy.

Young people who disengage from education at secondary school run the risk of leaving school without a qualification and as a result may struggle to find work. Given the current high levels of youth unemployment, there is an imperative to do more to address this serious problem; becoming reliant on benefits can be tragic for young people and also expensive to society.

Helping to improve the lives and prospects of these young people, helping them to become more economically independent, is an exciting and timely area of focus. Hundreds of thousands of young people could benefit from our help to turn their lives around.

By giving to Impetus-PEF, you ensure that high potential charities are provided with the strategic resources they need to improve their capacity to deliver effective interventions to young people in poverty in the UK. Your contribution is leveraged by both our innovative approach to investing in high potential charities and the package of support we deploy to each one. The result is effective giving that maximises social your impact.

There are several options for giving to Impetus-PEF, including:

  • make a direct financial contribution and see the impact made through our rigorous evaluation feedback
  • get your team or firm involved in one of our many pro bono projects working directly with a small dynamic team supporting our social entrepreneurs
  • contribute from your pre-tax salary or shares
  • introduce us to others interested in making a big impact, by hosting or attending one of our networking events.

We would be happy to talk to you about how you or your company can be part of the lasting change we seek to achieve. Our goal is to make giving as easy and as satisfying for you as possible.

Please email our Philanthropy team or call 0203 474 1005 to discuss opportunities to help ensure that these charities and social enterprises are delivering efficient, targeted outcomes to give young people in the UK the best chances for sustained economic independence.
