As economic and social inequality continue to grow in the UK, the role of education as a catalyst for change has become ever more critical.
Christ’s Hospital has pioneered social mobility in education for nearly 500 years. Our approach provides a proven model for transforming the lives of disadvantaged children in our society.
By providing first class, free or supported education to talented young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, Christ’s Hospital helps them to reach their full potential and transforms lives in a way that no other educational establishment in the UK can match.
Why we need your support
Our commitment to provide substantial bursary support exceeds the annual income from our endowment assets. Significant funding is now needed for Christ’s Hospital to continue to drive societal change.
Over £10,800 raised on #GivingTuesday – Thank you!
Christ’s Hospital thanks everyone who made a gift to the Blue Fund on 29 November for #GivingTuesday. Nearly one hundred donors made a donation, raising over £10,800! This far exceeds our target of £5000 and we are enormously grateful for the generous support of parents, Old Blues, staff and other friends of Christ’s Hospital who made this possible.
This was the first year the Christ’s Hospital has taken part in #GivingTuesday, a worldwide initiative supported by the Charities Aid Foundation, to encourage support for UK charities. This resounding success has helped put us one step closer towards our £190,000 Blue Fund target of funding another pupil’s seven year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital.
