Latest campaign: Sponsor A Mentee

Help increase access to actuarial careers through group mentoring for bright and determined graduates from all backgrounds, globally.

Mentoring helps aspiring actuaries grow in confidence and build professional networks.

The experience helps them get jobs, navigate the workplace and balance work and study.

It sets them on the path to qualified status and a flourishing career - one that may be life-changing for them, their families and communities.

And demand is there. More than 170 mentor-hungry graduates applied for places in 2022.

With your help we can support more of them. Our 2023-24 online programme will take place over nine months and mix larger group sessions with small squad meetings, led by professional mentors and actuaries.

Please help us kickstart careers and increase diversity in the actuarial profession:

  • Give any amount and you will receive progress updates from mentees and invitations to open ‘fireside chat’ events in the programme.
  • Give £250 or more to sponsor one mentee and you can choose to be introduced to them for an online meeting, to further foster their network.
  • Give £500 or more to sponsor two or more mentees and you will also be recognised as a Philanthropist of the IFoA Foundation – view our Giving Levels (PDF, 90KB)
  • Donors giving £5,000 or more will be recognised as Patrons of the 2023/2024 programme and offered bespoke engagement opportunities.

Please GiftAid your donation (PDF, 20KB) if you can!

PS. Does your employer offer match funding of charity donations? Please consider asking them to support us too and match your generous gift to double its value.

Other ways to support us

The IFoA Foundation's ability to support excellent causes, projects and people is dependent on our success in raising funds from IFoA members and supporters of the profession. Donating to the Foundation is a fantastic way to 'give back' or 'pay it forward' in the spirit of 'actuaries supporting others':

Accept a challenge!

Actuaries are good at lots of things. Are you athletic, creative, adventurous or curious? There’s a challenge for you and we’d love to support you to complete it to raise money in the spirit of ‘actuaries supporting others’.

Whether it’s a half-marathon, baking mission, knit-athon or record-breaking office conga line (anyone?) we can help you make it happen, celebrate it across our social channels and thank you and your colleagues profusely for your efforts.

Leverage your employment 

Give a regular donation on payday and you join a much-valued community of actuaries donating small monthly payments that make a world of difference to the impact we can make together. Pay it forward when you get paid.  

Does your employer offer Give As You Earn? It’s an easy, tax efficient way to give through your monthly salary. If not, you could set up a recurring payment with  Paypal or set up a Standing Order (PDF, 47KB). Soon we’ll be able to offer this through JustGiving. Watch this space and please get in touch if we’ve missed a good idea!

Mark a professional moment 

Newly qualified, new job or promotion? It’s the ideal time to ‘give back’ and help those who are starting their journeys to qualification and need help to get there.  

Make a one-off donation by using the button above. Get in touch to tell us what career landmark you are celebrating and we’ll help you mark it with posts on our LinkedIn and thanks from our beneficiaries.  

Does your employer offer match funds for your personal charity donations? Some of our best partners do and it’s a great way to leverage your own desire to give back with your employer’s CSR/I policy.

Partner with us 

We work with actuarial employers, recruiters and societies where there is synergy with CSR, ESG, DEI and charitable aims to leverage our joint resources for mutual benefit. Working together enables us to have a greater impact, more efficiently.  

If your organisation is interested in aligning with our mission of ‘actuaries supporting others’ and working to diversify the future of the profession, please get in touch! We are happy to come to your office and present or help you organise a fundraising event, involving some of our local beneficiaries to bring the cause to life.

Remember a Charity has some great advice for leaving gifts in your will.

Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss how your legacy gift could help give support and opportunities to actuaries from all backgrounds or support the next generation to study maths and benefit from financial education.
