Help us support our students

Alumni Fund

With your support, we can continue to help more higher education students access our Banking & Finance programmes, giving them the skills to succeed.

Help us raise £140,000 for our 140 years


We are committed to ensuring that students from all backgrounds are given the best opportunities to pursue careers in banking and finance.

The Alumni Fund was established in 2010 to offer wider access to our programmes and to give alumni and supporters an opportunity to give something back by investing in the next generation of financial services professionals.

The increasing cost of higher education can deter students from enhancing their skills, knowledge and employability through further study once they leave school. As a result, many of these students are missing out on the opportunity to realise their full potential.

The Alumni Fund provides assistance by awarding scholarships to help students with their education and maintenance costs, as well as providing funding for school and college students to attend the autumn university.

So far contributions have helped four cohorts of full-time students graduate and start their career in banking and finance, fostering talent needed in the evolving industry. Our Alumni Fund aims to equip students with the right skills and knowledge they need to excel in their future careers.

Thank you for your support.

Corporate Donations

We welcome donations from organisations, for both unrestricted and specific purposes.

Corporate donations can assist in delivering corporate responsibility programmes. Donations are an investment in the future of the industry and help towards making it more sustainable for the future.

Corporate donors are recognised in a variety of ways that can help to raise the donor organisation’s profile – both in general terms and specifically to those prospective and current students who have the opportunity to benefit from the donation. We would also like to hear for organisations that are able to offer our full-time students internships or summer placements.

If you would like to find out more about how your organisation could contribute, please contact Liam Mandeville, Alumni Development Manager on lmandeville@ifslearning.ac.uk or +44 (0) 20 7444 7129.
