Looking to the future of Assisted Places

07 July 2017

The completion of the AP100 Campaign in June 2016 presented a fresh and pressing new challenge: sustaining the level of support which has already enabled 100 boys to come to KES - boys who would otherwise have been unable to do so.

In September we will be outlining our vision for the future at ‘relaunch' events in London and Birmingham. These events will set forth a mission as familiar as it is essential: continuing to offer up to 10 Assisted Places each year.

Helping us on our mission is our fantastic team of student callers, who are taking to the phones in August to share news from the School, learn about Old Edwardians' post-KES adventures, and advocate for the enduring importance of Assisted Places. They join the ranks of 59 previous student callers, who between them have raised over £1.4m since 2010. Callers from previous years will provide support in the training and management of this summer's telephone campaign, maintaining the team effort that goes into making these campaigns so successful.

As always, KES is ahead of the curve and has long reflected best practice when it comes to notifying our community of forthcoming telephone campaigns. So, letters with further details will be landing on doormats later this month, fully endorsed by the new Fundraising Regulator and proudly bearing its Kitemark.
