We're still collecting donations

On the 26th August 2022 we'd raised £25,000 with 1 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

Enactus UK solely exists thanks to the support of our partners and donations. The impact of COVID-19 devastated our organisation. The impact we could have through our experiential learning platform and the projects they go on to create was diminished. 

With your generous donation, you are directly impacting the lives and development of the next generation of socially responsible leaders giving them the opportunity to create sustainable long-term impact in their local communities. 

The extra funding raised will allow us to

  • Invest and accelerate Enactus UK student project impact in their local communities.
  • Increase the reach and scope of the Enactus UK programme beyond the 60+ university teams and 3,500 students per year.
  • Train and develop more student teams in enterprise, entrepreneurship, social and environmental impact and local community engagement.
  • Bring in greater support from coaches and mentors engaging and contributing to teams and projects.

About us 

Enactus UK supports students & young people across the country to engage in social action and social enterprise. Our mission in the UK is to be recognised as a leader in developing a national network of socially minded young leaders of the future, who transform communities and society through real life social action and environmentally responsible enterprise.

We are dedicated to creating a better world while developing the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders and social innovators. The Enactus network of global business, academic and student leaders are unified by our vision - to create a better, more sustainable world

We have an established university programme which has been running since 2001 and now operates in over 60 universities across the UK, engaging up to 3,500+ students each year.  1659105278_omar_en.jpg

What we do

We make the connection between character education and the world of work, enabling young people to develop the knowledge and attitudes they need to succeed, building on the experience of youth social action, enterprise and entrepreneurship. We work with educational professionals, business leaders, mentors, specialists and Alumni who combine to create a unique co-curricular enterprising environment.

With the support of the programme and its 600+ mentors and advisers, last year Enactus students impacted over 12,000 beneficiaries through the delivery of over 230 socio-economic and environmental projects.

Our vision is to engage the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders to use innovation and business principles to improve the world.

Student Spotlight: Charlotte Till

1659105173_ct.png"My time in Enactus has been life-changing. Not only has it shaped my own personal values, seeking a career where an organisation cares about its community, but it has also given me friends for life, skillsets beyond my expected level, and real-life impact that I've helped create.  Enactus has been a crucial part of my university experience,  and I can wholeheartedly say that it will be a huge part of my future too. I feel really lucky that a society I stumbled upon from my first year of University will be something I hold dear in my heart for years to come!"
