We’re excited to launch a ground-breaking fundraising campaign with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) to celebrate their 150th year. RICS aims to raise £2.25m for LandAid, which will fund 150 bed spaces for young people who have experienced homelessness.
Known as Pledge150, the campaign will be the biggest fundraising initiative in LandAid’s history. The money raised will be given in grants to life changing projects across all of the RICS’ 12 UK regions. It will create safe, secure and affordable homes for young people who have experienced homelessness.
We encourage everyone working in the land, property and construction sectors to join in with the challenge.
When it comes to fundraising activities and helping to publicise the campaign, the bigger your ideas the better!
As part of the RICS Pledge150 campaign, those working in the built environment may also be given the opportunity to provide pro bono property advice to local charities supporting disadvantaged young people, families and communities, including those experiencing homelessness.
All firms that make a corporate donation to the RICS’ Pledge150 campaign will be highlighted on the organisation’s online pledge wall and will have the opportunity to say what they are actively doing to help end youth homelessness.
