Help us raise money


There are many ways to fundraise for Making The Leap. We rely on the generosity of our supporters, so whether you are undertaking a sporting challenge or hosting a quiz, your fundraising efforts will go directly towards transforming the lives of young people from less-advantaged backgrounds.

From sharing fundraising tips, supporting with publicity for your event as well as providing you with a Making The Leap t-shirt to wear, we will support you all the way!
