Why choose Young Enterprise?

Working with Young Enterprise gives you the opportunity to directly support and inspire young people in your area and empower them with the confidence, ability and ambition to succeed at school, at work and in life.


What could I support?

Every donation made to Young Enterprise is important to the young people we work with; we would be delighted to meet with you to discuss how we can help you fulfil your philanthropic objectives. We will ensure that your donation is invested where it will make the most impact and develop the projects which interest you the most.

Some of our philanthropists support specific projects or our work in specific geographies, whilst others prefer to give unrestricted strategic donations across our work, meaning our charity can invest in the programmes and areas which need it most.

You could support:

  • Our Company Programme, helping secondary school students create their own company over the course of an academic year – from designing, creating and marketing a product to building their company. Gaining an understanding of the world of business, and developing their skills
  • Our day classes for primary schools, providing schools with lessons on money management and the world of work
  • Supporting those about to leave education through CV-writing and interview skills classes, or Learn To Earn, our course which empowers young people to understand their own future career paths and earning potential, while helping them to understand budgeting and saving
  • Our work in personal finance helping young people understand about money management, salaries, savings and spending, teaching them the importance of understanding your own finances.


How is my support invested?

Young Enterprise is a small charity with a huge impact; every donation is absolutely vital to us, which is why we are so careful with your gift. An incredible 90p in every £1 donated to Young Enterprise goes directly to our programmes. This means that your donation goes further, directly supporting young people across the UK and empowering the next generation to develop the key skills they need.

Why do other philanthropists support Young Enterprise?

We’re passionate about empowering young people and so are our donors. Find out more about our philanthropic supporters, and why they think you should join them in supporting Young Enterprise.

I’d like to donate. Are there other ways I can help support Young Enterprise as well?

Firstly, thank you! We’re very glad that you would like to partner with us to help young people across the UK. We strongly believe that philanthropists are more than simply a financial supporter, and look forward to getting to know you as one of our philanthropic partners.

As well as your donation, there are a number of ways you can support Young Enterprise, helping us to ensure that every young person leaves education with the skills and experience they need to survive and thrive in the working world. You could volunteer on one of our programmes, introduce us to your friends who would also be interested in our work, put us in contact with Companies you work with to involve them in corporate support, or even host a dinner or event for us.
