We want to raise as much as possible to create amazing projects which will transform the lives of children across our City.

Project aim

Plymouth Drake Foundation is working to raise £10,000 to help tackle child poverty in Plymouth. Over 10,000 children in Plymouth live below the poverty line. It will take the people of Plymouth working together to end child poverty in Plymouth. Today, you can help make a start by supporting the Drake Foundation.

About the project

Over 10,000 children in Plymouth live below the poverty line. Together we can end child poverty in our City. Plymouth Drake Foundation is raising funds to help start that process. Working with community groups to run projects which will help transform the lives of children and their families.

The Drake Foundation is funded solely by grants and donations and devotes time and resources to making Plymouth a better place to live by helping the disadvantaged. You can make a difference to the lives of others in our City. 

If just 10% of the population gave £10 towards ending child poverty in Plymouth, we could transform the life of every child living below the poverty line.

Plymouth Drake Foundation cannot do it alone, we need the whole community to back this project and together we can end child poverty in Plymouth.

This Crowdfunder campaign will help us launch the first projects and begin making a real difference. Please support us today.

Outcome

The money raised will go towards projects that support children and families living in poverty in Plymouth. 

  1. To raise aspiration
  2. Build confidence
  3. Change lives

Every £1 pledged to this crowdfunder will be used to help the Drake Foundation reduce child poverty in Plymouth.
