Boost social mobility by helping upReach to support 2,500 students per year by 2022


Why Donate?

Thank you for your interest in making a donation to upReach. Research shows that non-selective state schools educate almost 90% of the population, yet account for only 30% of those on graduate schemes at some top employers. While more students than ever from less-advantaged backgrounds are now going to university, this has not translated to an increase in the number successfully securing roles on competitive graduate programmes at leading firms – the gateway to a successful career. All the money that is donated goes towards our work supporting high-achieving students from less-advantaged backgrounds to access the top professions. There are several ways you can donate to upReach:

Monthly Direct Debit

A regular contribution helps upReach fund our ongoing programmes of support.  Those who donate regularly to upReach by monthly direct debit are entitled to join upReach as a Member, Supporter or Sponsor, details of which are provided here. Alternatively, you can set up a regular direct debit through CAF Donate by clicking here.

One off donation

If you’re thinking about making a one-off donation to upReach, you can do so tax-efficiently through CAF Donate by clicking here. To find out about how even a modest donation can help Associates to Aspire, Develop and Succeed, click here.

Partner with upReach to fund specific events or cohorts

Are you interested in making a big impact on social mobility? There are opportunities to fund specific events such as an upReach Bootcamp for 25 to 40 students, or to provide an upReach Scholarship that would fully fund a cohort of 10 students from a specific university or career sector. Further details can be found here or email

Give as you Earn

Another possible way to make regular donations to upReach is via payroll. Ask your finance/HR team if your company operates the payroll giving scheme, and if so, just let your employer know that you would like to start giving to upReach and the donation will automatically be taken from your pay each month.
