Okay, I'm in. How do I go about making a difference?
Get in touch and we'll share resources and a helpful guide.
If you'd rather raise funds offline, that's absolutely fine, too. Thank you!
The quickest way to fundraise for REUK is to set up a Just Giving page. Creating an account and selecting 'Refugee Education UK' takes a couple of minutes, max.
Whether you challenge yourself, get together with friends or sell your old things, we're here to help. It can be hard to ask for money but we promise you it works and it's worth it.
Send a cheque (payable to Refugee Education UK), contact us for our bank details or make a one-off payment online. Just let us know what you prefer.
We need your help
Young refugees are generous and creative. To keep our services running, we need to ask the same from you.
When you sign up, we work with you to raise as much as possible to mitigate the impact of disruptions on young people's education. Their journey here and COVID-19 has made things really difficult, but we believe in them. We hope you do too.
Whether its a marathon, bake sale or arts fair, by raising funds for REUK you become an advocate for young refugees and for refugee education. We need your help to change the narrative and put a human face on the 'refugee crisis'.
When you join our fundraising effort, you send a clear message to young refugees that you stand with them and want to support their journey towards hope and flourishing. As a small charity, they rely on your efforts.
Ever since REUK started as a local mentoring programme, friends, acquaintances and strangers have been proactive in their fundraising for us.
Our current priority is to ensure young refugees do not face COVID-19 alone. At this point, fundraising is the most effective way to help them. We'll support and promote your efforts every step of the way.
Your support will enable young refugees to move forward in their education, grow in confidence and become more integrated into their new communities.
COVID-19 hit charities particularly hard. Unable to meet in person and with fundraising events like the London Marathon cancelled, we're working tirelessly to keep our services running and young people supported. Fundraising is especially powerful because it introduces new friends to REUK.
REUK is big enough to make a real impact but small enough to respond quickly to new needs.
I need a little inspiration. What can I do to raise funds?
Lead a Cookathon, ask for donations on your birthday, go sober!
Whichever way you choose, your contributions really do make a difference.
You don't have to be good at running to support young refugees. Host a fundraising dinner, organise a charity yoga class, host a charity movie night with friends (we recommend For Sama).
Whatever suits you suits us. Sell your old clothes, launch a readathon, host a carol concert. Cut your hair, grow your beard, busk! The possibilities are endless.
In the past, fundraisers have remembered and paid tribute to someone who was passionate about refugees or education. We'll also talk you through options for leaving something behind.
