At present, there is a Taskforce Fundraising (operating under the responsibility of St. UWCNL) in which the Head of College also participates (contacting – amongst others – parents and National Committees).Various segments have been identified and different activities are undertaken, such as fundraising dinners, fundraising trips to various Colleges, sportive events to raise money, PR at the TEFAF, alumni fundraising events, and special activities.
During the past years, aside from the loyal support of a number of committed individuals, firms and many alumni, generous donations have been given by the Emir of Qatar and the Sultan of Oman. These donations have served to provide scholarships to boarding students from all over the world based on merit and needs, and to initiate a pilot programme Social Entrepreneurship for the IB students, broaden the range of Outdoor activities, facilitate Guest lectures and set up a Counselling Programme.
At present, a UWCM Impact Fund is being set up to expand on the Social Entrepreneurship pilot.
All funding raised (after subtraction of possible fundraising and/or overhead costs) goes directly towards paying invoices for the international education and boarding costs of students, activities and programmes of the school UWCM, and whatever is necessary to support its activities and ensure its long-term sustainability, diversity and selection procedures based on merit and means-based scholarships.
Partner organisations include, amongst others, Stichting UWC Nederland, Stichting Beurzenfonds Nederland, UWC International and all the United World Colleges.
