Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

I am looking for donations to bring my not for profit organisation to life.
The organisation will be working with individuals with employment difficulties (homeless, learning difficulties, financial issues) and provide a chance for them to aquire some fresh life changing skills to help get them back into employment.
The pogramme will be providing free training specialising in the culinary and hospitality sectror. The project’s aim is to provide another chance to those in need. Many can work and are more than willing, however unfortunately simply can‘t find employment, lack the desirable skills, currently homeless or have been black balled due to convictions. I wish to change this and see those who feel there is no possibility at a helping hand being extended, receive one.
The programme is designed to provide first hand culinary and hospitality training free of charge.
Following on from initial donations which are essential to the start up of the project government funding as well as sponsers will be the main source of income to support the programme..
I am currently in talks with many pubs, restaurants and catering companies within the Yorkshire region with regards to working closely as partners of the programme and promoting it’s post training interview scheme. This will allow all those that enrole on the programme to successfully secure an interview with one of the associated establishments/organisations.
We are also looking to establish an arrangement with the Yorkshire police for young offenders to be offered the opportunity to join the programme. Whether this be for rehabilitation purposes or simply to provide a solution to a problem.
We want to help every step of the way and ensure that all those that enrole in the programme complete the training programme better off, however without you this isn’t possible.
However big or small the donations, they are all greatly appreciated and go to making someone elses life better by given them an opportunity no one else would.
As the project starts to gain momentum and donations begin to climb, I will be providing updates on all devlopments and awareness events until the launch date.
Thank you for your donation.
