This year I am joining fellow CAs by taking part in 'Foundation 25' to raise funds for the ICAS Foundation.
I’ve chosen to climb 3 Munros in 1 day to reach my £1,000 target. I have only ever climbed two Munros, both of which were in the last 6 months. After the last one (which was on the hottest day of the year) I vowed never to do one again, and here I am committing to 3 in one day...
‘Foundation 25’ is asking for 25 CAs to fundraise together to support the next generation of accounting professionals, and collectively raise our target of £25,000.
The ICAS Foundation supports academically talented students from disadvantaged communities to study accountancy and finance at university, offering bursary funding, mentoring support and help with finding internships and graduate jobs.
As a charity that relies on donations, the Foundation couldn’t do what they do without the help of ICAS members, and they need your support more than ever before. Applications continue to rise each year, and this year we saw a record-breaking number of young people apply for funding. Please join me in supporting future CAs by donating to the ‘Foundation 25’ fundraising campaign today.
