Fundraise

Fundraising makes a tangible difference to the work we do.  We are extremely grateful for the generous donations and fundraising support we receive that enables the young people we support to reach their full potential.

By providing high quality maths and English tutoring, both online and in person, we aid our pupils to not only increase their subject knowledge and study skills, but also their confidence and growth mind-set.

We want to extend our reach to ensure as many pupils as possible across England get the help they need. We would be grateful for any fundraising support you can provide and have shared ideas below on how you and your networks can get involved.

How do you spend the money raised?

We believe Action Tutoring represents an excellent social return on investment. We keep our administrative overheads to a minimum and through the effective use of volunteers we are able to keep the costs of a programme very low compared to private tutoring.
