Start Fundraising

Let's fundraise

Through our flagship scholarships, your fundraising will recognise the odds that students like Rhiannon have overcome to get to York, and level the playing field for them. You can help give students equal access to opportunities to realise their potential.

Whether you’re planning your own event, or taking part in someone else’s, there are so many things that you can do to reach your target and make a difference to the lives of students at York, and you will be supported every step of the way.

Your fundraising is vital in ensuring that we can continue to support students like Rhiannon, and the many other students who apply to our scholarships but don't receive them because there's simply not enough money to go around. Please take on a fundraising challenge and help students like Rhiannon not just now, but for years to come.
