One Degree relies on the support of the community it operates in to make a measurable and meaningful impact in the future of youth who are vulnerable to academic (and ultimately, economic) failure. Whether you are a concerned individual or a large corporate, you can make a difference!
Make a donation here and we will send you a One Degree wristband for every £10 you donate. You can then pay it forward with your friends, family and colleagues.
Corporate Social Investment
One Degree can be integrated into your company’s CSI programme through sponsorship. This goes beyond superficially “giving something back” to give disadvantaged children a chance to change their life prospects and reach their potential.
Once again RM Capital and Market Securities have pledged their support for the second year running by sponsoring five and three students respectively through a full 2016 programme. They join our fantastic list of corporates namely – Westcombe Homes, Tops Pizza, Pret Foundation, Sourcing Property, Ech Design; Gail’s Artisan Bakery & IDG UK
Corporate Team Building
Get your company involved with One Degree through our volunteer programme. It’s a great way to put your CSI philosophy into action and foster awareness among employees of the challenges facing youth today.

Partnerships and Collaboration
As a modern charity, we actively seek out opportunities for collaboration and partnership. We believe that if we are working towards the same goals then it only makes sense to work together to achieve them.
To join forces in any way, contact [email protected] for more details.
The network we nurture is core to our ethos. This refers not only our mentor and student networks, but also partnerships and collaborations. We are looking to link up with similar charities and social enterprises that we may be able to work with in some way, or that may offer our students something we cannot. Such organisations currently include MyBnk; Alcohol Education Trust; TechMaids; US Charitable Trust; Inneri and LIFE Creations.
