How we are funded

Pestalozzi is an organisation that receives no government funding, but we rely on generous donations through individual supporters, legacies and Trusts and Foundations. Each year Pestalozzi needs to raise £1.3m to run its unique scholarship programme.

Throughout the year we will get donations from individual supporters and we will also get money from legacies. But most of our funding comes from the different Trusts and Foundations we work with, their generosity means that we are able to secure around £300,000 on an annual basis. The remainder of the £600,000 comes from applications made during the year.
