Support Us

HOST gratefully acknowledges support received this year from individual donors and charitable Trusts.

Without their interest and financial assistance, we would not have been able to provide the opportunity for so many international students and residents of Britain to know each other.

Our Chairman, Mark Pellew, recently took two students to meet Mr Wing Yip, whose Foundation is one of HOST's sponsors, to talk about the benefit they had received from their HOST visits.

Friends of HOST

For 27 years, HOST has been working to extend the hand of friendship to international students from all over the world who come to study in the UK. Many of these students go on to be leaders of industry, senior within government or politically influential. Through our work, they are more knowledgeable about Britain and more positive about its values and culture than many other alumni. Today, more than ever, it is important to build understanding between countries and between those from different backgrounds and cultures.

By becoming a Friend of HOST, you enable us to continue to promote international friendship and understanding. We keep our Friends informed about HOST with twice-yearly newsletters.

We have three kinds of Friends:

  • Individual Friend: £20 per year
  • Family Friend: £30 per year
  • Corporate Friend: £300 per year

Please contact us if you would like to become a Friend of HOST, or donate now.
