Arvon offers corporate partners a unique arts sponsorship opportunity: we run innovative creative writing projects for young people and adults from disadvantaged backgrounds, transforming lives through the written word. Our work has a profound effect on the young people that we work with and if your organisations would like to be part of that work then we’d love to talk to you.
We understand that different companies will want to take different approaches to charitable giving so we offer opportunities to support Arvon in various ways; from financially helping schools attend our courses to payroll giving. We also offer high-profile sponsorship of black-tie fundraising events and our International Poetry Competition which attracts entries from over 40 countries worldwide.
Inspiring young people with the written word
Around 400 young people attend an Arvon creative writing course each year at one of our remotely located centres. About one third of our courses are with young people that would be unable to attend without financial assistance. For companies who wish to support educational activities, we are the ideal corporate partner, as our work has a transformative effect on young people’s lives. What’s more, we know our formula works and that it has been working for over 40 years.
“When I took over as Principal Teacher at Lochend Community High School we had the worst 5-14 results in Glasgow City Council and amongst the poorest in the country. Now we have some of the best results in the city and have better than the national average. I firmly believe that this is in part due to our pupils attending your courses and sharing their enthusiasm and cascading their skills with other pupils in the classroom.”
Gordon Fisher, Lochend Community High School, Glasgow

"In times like these we - and our guests - need as much warmth, creativity and fun as possible. Putting together Arvon and inspired literary themes has provided memorable evenings combining all three elements and we look forward to sharing these again with our friends at the Frankenstein evening."

“Belle Epoch was a unique event to take our clients and guests to. They commented on what a treat it was to have the actors and star names so close up. They all performed brilliantly and showed how much they care about the charity. We attend many events but Belle Epoch was totally original. The opportunity to be involved in the evening’s entertainment, sharing the stage with famous actors, and to dine in such splendid surroundings was unforgettable.”
Chris Satterthwaite, Chime Communications
Arvon fundraisers offer the best in entertainment for you and your guests – plus plenty of opportunity to take part in the fun.
