Who we are

The Educational Wealth Fund is a start-up charity aiming to build in perpetuity capital to help non-selective schools become the most wondrous and inspiring of all human places. Imagine our schools with dinosaur skeletons, art galleries, beautiful libraries, carbon neutrality, world-class sculpture and so much more. Our initial aim is to raise an endowment of £1 for each child in the UK. We are just beginning our pilot project to help a school become ‘carbon negative and wildlife positive’.

The role

This is an exciting opportunity to positively influence the lives of teachers and children.

Like most charities, The Educational Wealth Fund (EWF) is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Trustees are volunteers and are appointed to the board for a three-year term. They have ultimate responsibility for the sound professional, legal, and financial management of the EWF and they set and monitor the strategic direction of the charity.

As a charity based in Milton Keynes, it is easier if trustees live or work in MK. We are particularly interested to hear from those who have skills in any of the following areas: HR, law, finance, fundraising, operations, marketing and communications, school governance and leadership, contract management, events management, the creative, and environmental related fields. Ideally, but not exclusively we are looking for trustees with at least twelve months experience.

Please see the information pack attached for more details.
