Who are we?
YOUNG HARROW FOUNDATION has been set up to provide fundraising, capacity building and networking support to local organisations to enable them to deliver their services as effectively as they can. We aim to think outside of the box and introduce community based organisations to seek funding from a range of sources in this time of cuts to services.
We really need YOUR support to reach a fundraising target that will ensure 10 local organisations continue to deliver vital projects, opportunities and support to over 1,000 children and young people living in Harrow.
The groups have already managed to raise over £16,000 for themselves through their local networks and supporters using Crowdfunder for the first time – we have managed to make their £16,000 into £52,039 through securing match funding from YHF, local business and Harrow Council but we aren’t there yet…….
The ideal target to ensure these vital services continue is £60,000.
You can help by donating and showing your support for children and young people who rely on these projects in Harrow today.
