We are very fortunate that NUJ members continue to support the work of the fund.

So we can continue to offer much-needed help to Black and minority ethnic students committed to a career in journalism, it is important that we build our fundraising network. That's where you can help!

Whether it is a personal donation, a sponsored activity or a fund-raising event – there are lots of ways you can help a great cause.

If you're an NUJ member – how about organising a whip-round after a chapel meeting, or holding a quiz night or a press ball in support of the George Viner Memorial Fund? The more adventurous may be up for a sponsored parachute jump, marathon attempt or epic bicycle race.

Don’t forget some companies have their own charitable trusts and encourage staff to nominate their favourite charities as beneficiaries – let your company know the great work the fund is doing to get more Black and minority ethnic journalists into the media industry.

We operate on a very small budget – every donation makes a huge difference.
