***Fundraising update: Thanks to your generous support, GCF has raised an incredible £4,608 through the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018. Thank you!***

We’re very excited that GCF has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2018, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. This means that from now until 12pm Tuesday 4th December, your donation to the Geraldine Connor Foundation will be doubled. One donation, twice the impact.

It has never been more important for people to come together through arts and culture.

The Foundation continues the spirit in which Geraldine worked, in a way that enables people who wouldn’t otherwise get the chance to learn about the performing arts, not necessarily turning them into professional performers, but giving them the opportunity to try things out and learn about themselves through those experiences. David Lascelles, Earl of Harewood

Your donation helps us to continue this work though our diverse projects and work with young people.

The Foundation brings people in from all different backgrounds. I was really shy, but I also wanted to push myself, and that’s the environment they provide, and because of that I feel more comfortable in dealing with different things. They bring out the best in you. It’s a great opportunity for anyone. Adeline Pitu, participant

To continue our vital work with communities and young people, we need your help to reach our £2,000 target. Please note, in order for your donation to be doubled you must donate through the Christmas Challenge website during the donation period (12pm on 27th November to 12pm 4th December).

Thank you for your support.
