Christ’s Hospital thanks everyone who made a gift to the Blue Fund on 29 November 2016 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.
The first Blue Fund supported by Old Blues, Parents and friends of CH, was successfully completed in October this year. Thanks to their generosity, we look forward to welcoming a new pupil at CH in September 2017 and we hope that this support will continue to help fund another child in need.
All gifts to the Blue Fund, no matter the size, will help offer life-changing opportunities to another young person.
On 29th November 2016, for the first time ever, Christ’s Hospital will take part in #GivingTuesday. An international day for charitable giving, last year over £6,000 a minute was donated nationwide, setting a World Record for the most money donated online.
Following the success of completing our first Blue Fund last month, we want to raise £5,000 on #GivingTuesday to start our second Blue Fund off with a bang. Achieving our ultimate goal of raising £190,000 will mean we can give another child in substantial need access to a first class education. Pupils supported by the Blue Fund benefit from a school environment that successfully nurtures intellectual, moral and emotional growth, as well as providing much needed financial support. No matter the amount, your gift on #GivingTuesday will help us to offer a life changing opportunity to a young person.
On this global day of giving we want to get a head start on our second Blue Fund so we can support another child as soon as possible. But we will need your help to spread the word, by sharing, retweeting and posting on your Facebook and Twitter feeds. We want to hear about why you think the Blue Fund is a worthy cause – don’t forget to tag @CHBlueFund and #GivingTuesday so we can see your posts!

We are delighted to announce that we’ve reached our first Blue Fund target of £180,000!
Thanks to the 339 Old Blues, parents and other friends of Christ’s Hospital who gave single gifts and regular donations of all sizes,, we have raised the £180,000 needed to fund a child’s seven year education and boarding at the School.
The admissions process is underway to find our first Blue Fund pupil, to start at Christ’s Hospital in September 2017.
In the meantime, we look to raising our new goal of £190,000 so we can give another child in substantial need access to a first class education at Christ’s Hospital.
We have a number of events that are a great way to get together with those participating in the Blue Fund, but also those in the wider Christ's Hospital community. Please do join us!
