Fundraise for IntoUniversity

We need your help to raise vital funds for our work with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Fundraising with your friends, family or colleagues is a great way to support young people across the country.

There are lots of different ways you could fundraise for IntoUniversity - from sponsored bike rides and parachute jumps to Readathons and charity concerts.

Prime for Primary
Last year we ran an exciting new virtual challenge event, 100 for 100k. IntoUniversity staff and supporters took on an array of sponsored challenges related to the number 100, including cycling 100km, reading 100 books and taking 100 photos. The campaign was a huge success and raised over £90,000 for the charity. We're so grateful to everyone who took part.

This year, we have another exciting opportunity for you to take part in - Prime for Primary. We are asking participants to dream up a challenge involving any one of the prime numbers (if you need a refresher of what these are, click here)! This could involve doing 127 minutes of yoga, or baking 59 cakes! The challenge is open to people of all ages and abilities and you can take part as an individual or as part of a team. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out our list of ideas.
Funds raised will go towards our crucial work with Primary students, supporting them next academic year to recover and re-engage with their learning after the severe disruption caused by the pandemic and school closures.

We are asking people to complete their challenges in July and August and we would love as many supporters to be involved as possible, having fun whilst raising vital funds for IntoUniversity.

Weston to Clacton Bike Ride

In May 2019, IntoUniversity staff and supporters cycled an incredible 270 miles from our centre in Weston-super-Mare, to our centre in Clacton-on-Sea, raising over £20,000 for IntoUniversity.

Unfortunately, our Liverpool to London bike ride, scheduled for May 2020, was postponed due to COVID-19, but we are hoping to reschedule it when it is safe to do so.
