Today’s the day! At midday, we launch our Big Give Christmas Challenge campaign for 2021. We’re raising money for our Talent Bonds programme, which awards young people small personalised grants they can use to grow a skill, develop a talent or pursue a passion.
This year, to celebrate the Foyer Federation’s 30th year, we’re aiming to raise a massive £9,000 to give £300 each to 30 young people. Can you help us get there?
Just this month, we awarded 10 young people £250 each as part of the Talent Bond programme. Funding went to a young person in need of equipment to take an outdoor skills course in winter, a young parent setting up a business making gift hampers, a cycle mechanic in training who needed parts – and seven other young people with varied and exciting interests. Read more about the ways they put their funding to use.
Our donation page is live from midday on 30 November until midday on 7 December. You can also help to boost our campaign by sharing posts on social media and using the hashtag #ChristmasChallenge21. You can find our Twitter account here.
