Sponsor a School
Is there a school close to your heart? Perhaps your old secondary school, or the one your children or grandchildren attend? This Christmas, take the opportunity to support and inspire the next generation of geographers with the Society’s ‘Sponsor a school’ scheme.
Sponsoring a secondary school gives all the teachers and students at that school access to the full range of our award-winning online resources including in-depth case studies, online interviews, resources to accompany our ‘Ask the Geographer’ podcast series, and research articles from some of Britain’s leading geographical experts. In addition, sponsoring a school’s membership of the Society gives them the opportunity to attend school member lectures and watch online recordings of our Monday night lecture series, as well as discounts for Geographical magazine and Philip’s atlases. School members are also entitled to a 15 per cent discount at Cotswold Outdoor.
John Davies FRGS has been sponsoring a school since 2015. He said: ‘By sponsoring a school you give the geography teachers and pupils the opportunity to have some of the best and latest resources available to them. Everyone should think back to when they were in school and see what a benefit such a membership would have been to them at that time.’ Sponsoring a secondary school of your choice costs just £85 for a year’s membership.

Individual membership of the Society is the perfect present for those who love learning about the world’s people, places and environments. Our members benefit from a huge range of resources, events and activities, including our popular Monday night lecture series, as well as the opportunity to meet others who share their passion.
Ordinary membership costs £139 for one year and is just the thing for those interested in connecting with others that have similar interests as well as for staying informed about geography.
Young Geographer membership is ideal for those studying geography at school or university and looks impressive on university and job application forms. Starting at just £45 for 12 months, it is a great way to introduce young geographers to both the Society and the geographical community.
So this Christmas, give a gift that inspires, supports and encourages – give a school, friend or relation membership of the Society.
To ensure delivery in time for Christmas, please order by Wednesday 12 December.
