Ark would not exist without our Patrons. Every pound of patronage donated allows us to raise five times more in
donations through government and third party funding. This has enabled us to leverage 460m from governments and
partners in ten years.
Patronage allows Ark to promise donors that 100% of their gift will go directly to our programmes which transform
children's lives in the UK and across the world. Three out of four donors consider this essential when making the
decision to give. For this reason, our patrons play a crucial role in our funding model and are at the very core of Ark.
