How you can help the George Viner Memorial Fund

The George Viner Memorial Fund

Every year we have increasing numbers of applications to the trust, which means that demands on the fund totally outstrip our limited resources. 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.
