Confidence counts.

Supporting 1000+ women working in the voluntary sector taught us that confidence is a competitive advantage for charities. It will help you stand out, attract volunteers, funders and inspire trust - all of which are essential for building a successful and impactful charity.

We can't wait to support you and your teams.
The UPFRONT Charity Bond is an exhilarating six-week online experience where you learn to build your confidence and the confidence of the women around you. It all happens LIVE alongside hundreds of curious women from all over the world.

The Bond will impact your organisation at an individual and team level. Confidence is an incredibly powerful force in the charity sector. It will help you stand out, attract volunteers, funders and inspire trust - all of which are essential for building a successful and impactful charity.

I promise three outcomes: you'll start to love the thing that scares you, you'll find your people, and 10x your confidence.

What Charity Leaders say

I feel, for the first time in ages, excited about all there is for me to do, not downhearted assuming I’ll never get to do them or ‘be like that’. I can’t wait to meet even more of the amazing people on here and build myself and them up! Thank you.
I was amazed by the incredible demand for Bond 7. It's inspiring to see the demand among women for what UPFRONT has to offer. The course's flexibility was a game-changer for us, and the feedback we've received has been very positive. The Charity Bond opportunity is exciting for our sector

Lauren and the women who are part of the Global Bond have created a diverse, inclusive and safe space for women to explore, test, challenge and be heard. There is power in community, there is power when women rise and there is power in vulnerability.
