Give a Gift of Careers Inspiration this Christmas

Wednesday 5 December 2018

Form the Future has launched a Christmas fundraising appeal.

We need to raise £40,000 - so that we can inspire and guide even more young people towards the skilled jobs of the future.

We are aiming to raise £20,000 from a crowdfunding appeal and looking to our corporate supporters to provide match funding of £20,000.

Form the Future is the leading provider of careers inspiration to schools in Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire. We deliver the flagship Cambridge Launchpad programme for some of Cambridge’s largest and most significant employers, making STEM accessible to all.

Severely restricted school budgets make it very difficult for schools to buy in all the services we can provide. Greater Cambridge doesn’t attract the funding for careers support that other areas get. But a fast-growing region like this needs to develop the potential of every child, to build a skilled workforce for the future and ensure opportunities are evenly shared.

We are at an exciting moment in our history – after three tremendous years of success as a social enterprise we are converting to a charity for the next step of our journey and building a new membership model for individuals and companies. We are determined to play a significant role in shaping the future for skills across the region. But to make this change we need to raise £40,000 to ensure that we can continue to provide a high quality service as we transition between funding streams and to enable a new membership base to be built.

Tax efficient donations can be made through Global Giving or from a link on our website.
