ParentPay announces three-year patronage of Mosaic at Enterprise Challenge grand final

06 May 2016

ParentPay, the UK’s market leading online payment service for schools and families has announced that it is commencing a three-year patronage of Mosaic.

Speaking at the Grand Final of Mosaic’s Enterprise Challenge competition, ParentPay’s CEO Clint Wilson revealed that his company had been looking for a UK charity to support. Having worked extensively with Mosaic over the past 12 months, it was clear that the charity’s mission perfectly complemented ParentPay’s own ideals.

Outlining why he felt Mosaic was the right charity to support, Clint said: "I’ve been very fortunate to witness first hand the positive impact Mosaic has had on young people’s lives. The Skinners’ Academy students were thrilled at winning last years’ Enterprise Challenge Grand Finals and watching them grow in confidence and ambition since has been a privilege. As a result of seeing the positive impact this charity has had, we at ParentPay are proud to support Mosaic.”

Clint added: “We have a duty to help young people at the start of their journey towards a career. All of us who’ve been successful in business need to be reminded that we’re privileged to be in this position and we owe it to the next generation to guide and inspire them as much as possible.”

“When I think about Mosaic and their work giving young people the tools they need for success, it’s clear that there’s a strong connection with ParentPay, not only because we both work amongst communities of schools and parents but also because we share the same ideals.”

“I’m proud to announce our patronage and I am excited about what we can achieve together in the coming years.”

Jonathan Freeman, Managing Director of Mosaic, adds: “ParentPay’s generous decision to become a patron of Mosaic will mean that we can help and inspire even more young people across the UK. It’s clear that our two organisations share a set of strongly-held beliefs in the incredible potential of young people and I look forward to a long and successful collaboration as we extend Mosaic’s reach still further.”
