The Rank Foundation has a proud history of creating, encouraging and investing in networks.  We understand that connections between people and projects are essential when looking for opportunities to share, learn and collaborate. Our network is rich with dynamic projects, inspiring leaders and innovative frontline staff. If funded by the Rank Foundation, you are warmly invited to play your part.

Features of the RankNet Community Platform

  • Access to our Market Space; to request a skill set from within the network or to market your own.

  • Promote your project and its impact; share pictures, blog pieces and video content.

  • Stay connected to a specific alumni or programme group

  • Educational and networking events, throughout the year.

  • Application forms for Time 2 Shine and the Rank Aspire Programme.

  • Application forms for specific programmes or grants.

  • Application forms for Development Bursaries and Sharing Good Practice visits.


You will need to have been invited via an email invitation by The Rank Foundation Team. The email will include a signup link that is unique to your email address, so it cannot be shared with anyone else.

RankNet is for the use of current beneficiaries, past and present Time to Shine interns, members of the Fellowship, School Leadership Award holders, past and present Gappers and Yappers, and managers. If you aren’t sure if you are a part of the network, you can email ranknet@rankfoundation.com and ask. You can also see our Membership Policy here to check your eligibility.

We have been gradually working through our contacts list, but if you are a member of the network and haven’t received an invite (or can’t find your original invite), please get in touch (ranknet@rankfoundation.com) and we can organise a new invite.

The RankNet Community Platform was built exclusively for the use and benefit of our past and present beneficiaries, so that they do not lose their connection with the Foundation and their fellow beneficiaries. There are rare exceptions to this at the discretion of our Executives, eg. evaluators, trainers, coordinators that have worked for/with the Foundation.
