The Prince's Trust Women's Leadership Group is an innovative
fundraising initiative with a dedicated committee of leading,
influential women. Our members make a financial contribution to The
Trust and commit to raising funds to help young women get their
lives back on track.
Of the 50,000 young people The Trust helps each year, only
16,000 will be young women. And the majority of our donors are
male. Our mission is to involve more women in our work and to
motivate our female supporters to help us help more disadvantaged
young women than ever before.
WLG achievements to date:
- £3.2 million raised in pledged funds;
- 46 dedicated members
- 4 challenge events to exotic locations, raising a total of
- 6 Prince's Trust projects have been developed and delivered and
all core programmes supported
- Many volunteering opportunities taken up by members.
