The Inflexion Foundation makes significant commitment to IntoUniversity
Inflexion Private Equity Partners LLP (“Inflexion”) is delighted to announce that The Inflexion Foundation has made a significant commitment to IntoUniversity, an education charity that inspires young people to achieve. The Inflexion Foundation has committed a grant of £200,000 per annum over each of the next three years to support the charity’s vital work, while the Inflexion team will also engage in a number of pro bono activities.
IntoUniversity is an award-winning education charity which was founded as a homework club in North Kensington in 2002. Today it operates 31 local centres nationally which provide academic support, mentoring and aspiration-raising programmes to help students from low socio-economic backgrounds achieve their ambitions. At each local centre, IntoUniversity offers an innovative programme that supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to attain either a university place or another chosen aspiration. In 2020, 71% of IntoUniversity’s school leavers gained a university place compared with 26% of young people from similar backgrounds nationally. With the key support of strategic partnerships such as ours, IntoUniversity are able to have this impact in a cost-effective way.
Prior to announcing this formal partnership, Inflexion has supported IntoUniversity through workshops for students at its offices and through corporate mentoring. IntoUniversity is one of the charities backed by Impetus, an organisation Inflexion has been a longstanding supporter of.
Inflexion’s generous, long-term support of our charity will enable us to support many, many young people to achieve their ambitious dreams and to access exciting career opportunities. We are delighted that so many of their team have already volunteered to support our partnership and are very much look forward to working together over the coming years.

Chief Executive and Co-Founder, IntoUniversity
