Fundraise for us
From charity runs to spelling bees, there are so many ways you can fundraise and help to build a fair education for all.
Please read our latest COVID-19 guidance on fundraising for us.
Imagine you’re going out for a run with a friend. Their half of the running route is clear, yet yours is lined with hurdles. Unfair, right? But that’s what our education system is like for the UK’s poorest children.
All kids work hard at school. But those from disadvantaged families have always had to overcome more hurdles to keep up with their wealthier classmates.
Mr Wiles wouldn’t give up on me. He was patient. Even if I had taken a step back one day, we’d start all over again the next day.
We need your help more than ever to give a fighting chance for the country’s poorest young people.
Discover more about the difference you'll make through your fundraising.
I admire Teach First for helping young people like me to get a great education and to move one step closer to fulfil our potential.
Get inspired. Get involved.
Run? Cycle? Swim? However you fundraise, you’ll be helping to get great teachers and brilliant leaders into the schools that need them most. On your marks. Get set…
Push yourself to the limit on one of our epic charity events. A mountainous trek. A mind-blowing skydive. An adventure of a lifetime. Our challenge is to unlock the potential in all children, not just some. What will yours be?
