The McWhirter Foundation relies on the generosity of its trustees and supporters. The costs of accommodating and feeding more than 80 sixth formers at Oxford, and from 2016, Cambridge, for a couple of days, as well as the tutors and speakers, are paid for in full by the Foundation, with the help of individual donations.

Corporate Sponsorship

The Oxford and Cambridge Conferences provide a unique educational opportunity and can often change a young person’s educational career choices. Companies and institutions that choose to support educational charities and would like to discuss the opportunity to sponsor a conference, or delegate(s), are invited to contact the Foundation Director directly.

Individual Donations

The McWhirter Foundation has minimal overheads, so any donation goes a long way. For instance, £250 will sponsor a sixth former at a McWhirter Conference.
