Funding Opportunities

Support our growth, increase our impact

Awareness, Aspiration, Achievement

It's simple. Children can only aspire to what they know exists. That aspiration drives learning and educational achievement.

No matter where they live in Scotland, or what their social, cultural or financial background, every child should know about the life and learning opportunities available to them.

We rely on the help of generous sponsors to make our vision a reality. Drop us a line for a chat about how you can support us.

Making our work possible

We are indebted to the ScottishPower Foundation who, in 2013, became our founder funder. Our partnership with the Foundation has enabled us to expand and to support even more children across Scotland.


ScottishPower Foundation


We've also received generous support from Scottish Government, who named us as partners in their Raising Attainment For All programme.

We have also gratefully received funding from the Souter Charitable Trust, The Robertson Trust and The Gannochy Trust, which will enable us to develop our programme in new areas of the country.

With this support, we have achieved a great deal, but there is so much more to do. We want to reach out to more children in the communities where there in greatest need.

We hope you can help us.

What we can achieve with your support

There are over 2,500 schools in Scotland, but at the moment we are only able to reach a small portion of these.

Your support will allow us to set up new local centres and enlist the help of new learning partners as we engage with an increasing number of schools across Scotland. 

Every new child member with be provided with a Passport to Learning, opening up a world of exciting educational opportunities for them outside lesson time. 

For each child, our programme sends a powerful message of encouragement: that if you enjoy doing something, and if you work hard and persevere at it, then you can achieve great things.

Please invest in our children's future.
