What is the Blue Fund?

The Blue Fund invites donors to join forces and, in partnership, fund a full seven year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital, for children in need.

Our goal

The Blue Fund aims to raise £190,000 to cover the cost of the full seven year education for a needy child at Christ's Hospital.

Thank you to our 264 donors who have collectively raised £167,149 so far.

We are also enormously grateful to those who have pledged to continue giving regularly (monthly, quarterly or annually) over a child’s lifetime at Christ’s Hospital.

Previously...

In October 2016, we reached our first target of £180,000 to fund our first Blue Fund pupil's seven year education and boarding at Christ's Hospital. This was possible thanks to the 339 Old Blues, parents and other friends of Christ's Hospital who joined forces and gave single gifts and regular donations of all sizes.

Our first Blue Fund pupil, Tom, started at Christ's Hospital in September 2017. Make sure to follow us on our social media pages to be kept up to date with all of his news.

In the meantime, fundraising continues for a second Blue Fund pupil.

Where does the money go?

Your donation provides first class free and supported education at Christ's Hospital for young people from disadvantaged and modest backgrounds with the potential to succeed in life.

Christ’s Hospital transforms lives in a way that no other educational establishment in the UK can match.

We ensure every pupil, regardless of their social or financial background, receives the highest standard of education, as well as the support and encouragement to develop their skills and talents to help them reach their full potential.

Your participation matters!

The Blue Fund succeeds only as a collective effort; every gift, regardless of size, makes a tangible difference. Even a small increase in the percent of participation, or the size of an average gift, can have a huge impact on the fund's success. By joining forces, you can help offer life changing opportunities to young people
