The important work we do with disadvantaged young people in Glasgow and Manchester could not happen without the generous support of our funders. It costs approx. £620 to mentor a child for a year. We ask the schools that if possible they make a contribution towards the cost of the mentoring and the rest we commit to fundraise ourselves. Our funding structure each year roughly follows this pattern:
- 60% – Grant-making bodies: including Garfield Weston Foundation, Big Lottery Fund, Robertson Trust and others
- 25% – School contributions: we ask schools to contribute where possible
- 10% – Fundraising events: held at various times throughout the year
- 5% – Friends of Citywise: supporters who give us individual donations on a regular basis by standing order
One off donation: however big or small, your donation will help support our work with young people.
Give: become a ‘Friend of Citywise’ and support us with monthly donations.
