Can I donate to Futures Fund every month?
We're grateful for regular donations.
You can set up a monthly donation or Direct Debit online. Simply select 'Monthly’ when asked ‘How often would you like to give?’ when making a donation. You will then be prompted to choose how much you would like to give and complete your bank details.
You will receive an email to confirm the recurring payment you've set up. You'll get a separate email receipt for the first payment. If you're paying by Direct Debit, you'll get another email with your Direct Debit guarantee.
Do you prefer people to make regular gifts rather than one-off donations?
Long-term donations enable us to plan for the future and ensure money is available where it is needed most or has the most impact.
I have a Direct Debit that I want to update. How do I change the amount or add new bank details?
|f you've set up a recurring donation to a charity and you'd like to change how much you donate, all you need to do is start a new donation with the new amount. The old recurring donation can then be cancelled.
Is making a donation online secure?
We have chosen Enthuse as our online donation service provider.
The donations they collect on our behalf are always held in a separate account prior to being distributed, which ensures that donations are completely ring-fenced and will always be protected. Enthuse is registered with the Financial Conduct Authority under the Payment Services Regulations 2017 for the provision of payment services, under the reference number 797344.
What does the Futures Fund do with my donation?
Your donations help us continue our work to bring our programmes to even more young people so we can inspire and support future engineers into the profession.
Your money will help us to provide a variety of services that help make sure engineering is accessible to as many children and young people as possible.

How will you use my donations?
Every year, we invest time and resources into our education and award programmes for young people.
Through your donations, we are able to reach more schools and children, meaning that teams who would not otherwise be able to take part in our STEM programmes can and, through your donations, we are able to offer more students and apprentices the great opportunity to receive funding towards their apprenticeship or studies in engineering, supporting them towards a career in the sector.
Can you use my donation for a specific aspect of your work?
We provide a variety of services that help make sure engineering is accessible to as many children and young people as possible, from helping provide the logistical, administrative and technical expertise and backing to ensuring our STEM challenges can go ahead in as many regions across the UK and Ireland as possible to offering more scholarships to those most deserving and for whom we can make the biggest difference.
We plan these services very carefully to ensure we can deliver our education and awards programmes as wide as possible. We review our services regularly to make sure they are providing the best value for money and maximum impact.
For this reason, we prefer to use donations to fund whichever of our programmes are most in need, but if you would like us to use your gift towards a specific aspect of our work we will comply wherever possible.
