Helping us to change lives

Raise money to support our work


Do you want to make a significant difference to the prospects and work opportunities of young people from low-income backgrounds? Can you afford to donate your time or money to help the EY Foundation continue its important work? Do you want to be part of something truly rewarding?


Our work relies on the support and fundraising efforts of the incredible people who donate directly, complete challenges and give up their time to organise events. The money raised helps us to reach more young people, break down more barriers and change more lives. Every penny counts and will make a difference to young people.



Ways to donate to the EY Foundation

  1. Set up a monthly donation or give a one-off gift through the EY Foundation Just Giving page
  2. Text to donate - text EYF to 70460 to make a one-off donation of £10 or get in touch if you would like to set up your own fundraising keyword*

*Texts cost £10 plus one standard rate message and you’ll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to give £10 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text EYFNOINFO to 70460.

Ways to fundraise for the EY Foundation

Whether it’s a raffle, a run, or a ride, our team are on hand to support with fundraising page set up, promotion ideas and moral support for your own events. 


We also organise our very own EY Foundation fundraising challenges to raise money, ranging from trekking the Sahara, summiting Everest Base Camp or conquering the Great Wall of China.  If you prefer a UK based event then we offer the glorious Three Peaks Challenge, or buy places in iconic races such as the Manchester marathon and Royal Parks half-marathon.


We are constantly considering the safety of our fundraisers when it comes to taking part in these challenges, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.  New events will be posted here as the risk is assessed.



The highlight was the sense of achievement to get to the summit of the third peak, Snowdon, after the trials and tribulations of the previous 24 hours. Also the camaraderie with the other fundraising volunteers as well as the fantastic views from the climbs.
