Over the course of the next few months 25 people, including me, will be undertaking personal challenges to raise £1000 each to support the ICAS Foundation. Together we are the "Foundation 25"!
The ICAS Foundation supports academically talented students from disadvantaged communities who want to study accountancy and finance at university, offering bursary funding, personal mentors and support in obtaining internships and graduate jobs. In recent years over 95% of our students graduated with a 1st class or upper second honours degree. Our students are seriously smart people!
Although we are encouraging family and friends to donate we have a secondary target that at least 10 of our sponsors are CAs from our personal networks. So collectively we hope to raise £25k and engage 250 CAs.
I have chosen to undertake the Edinburgh Mighty Stride Kiltwalk, a 21 mile route around Edinburgh, a distance I haven't dared broach since I was much younger and fitter,
Please help me either by making a donation to this fundraiser and/or by encouraging any of your network to support me or one of my fellow Foundation 25 fundraisers.
