Fundraise for us

Teach First fundraisers jumping in the air

From charity runs to spelling bees, there are so many ways you can fundraise and help to build a fair education for all.

Teach First fundraisers jumping in the air
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. 

Elisha's story

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.

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.
