Get involved

We very much welcome any way in which you can help us make a sustainable and tangible difference to the lives of those living in poverty, particularly young people, by supporting charities that focus on education.

Some of the ways in which you can get involved are listed below but please get in touch if you have other ideas whether big or small.

Become a Corporate Patron

Patron membership is our premier membership category for individuals and corporates who wish to support our efforts. You can make a regular donation to basis.point and enable us to plan longer-term work with our grantees. Patrons form a very important part of the basis.point movement and benefit from networking opportunities, mention on our website and at events, first booking preference at basis.point events, volunteering options and engagement with basis.point grantees.

This will help make a sustainable and tangible difference to the lives of those living in poverty, particularly young people, by supporting charities which focus on education.
