Sponsor a school

At Franklin Scholars we believe in the power of people helping people.

Businesses are a crucial part of your local communities, playing an important role in making sure that every young person is able to achieve a good education and lead a successful working life beyond school. This is especially true in the current school funding climate, where businesses can provide much-needed assistance to their local schools.

Lack of funding is a significant hurdle to schools wishing to work with Franklin Scholars. Many of our partner schools struggle to find the funding needed to continue working with us, even when the programme has been a success. Even more schools are never able to partner with us at all.

This is where your business can help! We are seeking businesses interested in giving back to their local communities, by helping us fund our year-long mentoring programmes in schools across England.


  • Ability to participate in the Franklin Scholars programme at a subsidised rate

  • Improved programme outcomes, as positive impacts improve the longer schools stay with us

  • Closer school ties to local businesses in the community


  • Opportunity to support a proven peer mentoring programme, effective at reducing the attainment gap in schools and development of ‘work-ready’ skills (through our ABCD shield!)

  • Recognition as a business leader in local community engagement

  • Opportunity to establish ties to local schools, rooted in the needs of the school


We offer several opportunities for businesses to help subsidise our programmes, ranging from £500 to £5,000 depending on the level of support you’re able to provide. These sponsorship opportunities will enable us to support schools that otherwise wouldn’t be able to participate in our programme.
