Make your regular gift


When you make a regular gift, you’ll join over 1,600 other regular donors. Your gifts really will add up to change lives through education. 

  • £5 per month will help a student to join a society, when they’d struggle to afford it otherwise - giving them the chance to make friends and learn new skills.

  • £10 per month will help fund a scholarship for a student from a disadvantaged background - that could be the difference between them coming to university or not.

  • £20 per month will help further research into diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and motor neurone disease - helping patients through new treatments.
