Last night Caro Howell, Director and Emma Middleton, Curator Artists’ Projects attended the ICAP Charity cheque presentation at Mansion House.
Funds raised on the ICAP Charity Day will support the Museum’s pioneering training programme for care-experienced young adults. The support from ICAP will ensure the Museum’s unique training and mentorship programme ‘Tracing Our Tales’, for care-experienced young adults can continue. The programme aims to provide the art skills, social skills and communication skills to enable these young people to become artist assistants at the Foundling Museum. In 2019, five ‘Tracing Our Tales’ graduates from 2018 worked as Artist Assistants in the Museum and helped to run creative workshops for families visiting the Museum during the school holidays.

ICAP Charity Day was founded in 1993 to grow its charitable giving programme through an innovative fundraising initiative that would make a significant difference to charities. Made possible through its unique position in the financial markets, the Company and its brokers committed to donating all revenues and commissions on one day a year, to a select group of charities around the world to guarantee that they would receive a sizeable contribution to fund much needed projects and initiatives. Now in its 27th year, ICAP, its customers and partners have collectively raised almost £145 million to date and supported more than 2,400 projects worldwide.
