Fundraising for The Shaw Mind Foundation
The Shaw Mind Foundation relies on donations from the public in order to continue to help people across the world with mental health issues. Our trustees receive no remuneration, so you can rest assured that your donation goes directly to help those who need it most.
Why fundraise for us?
The Shaw Mind Foundation relies on your philanthropy and generosity. Our projects cannot run without your support, and by fundraising for us, not only do you get to associate yourself with a great charity, but you are also helping children, adults, and families across the world.
We think that the best fundraising is done with the help of people close to you, such as your friends, family or colleagues, to do something unique and extraordinary. Use your imagination to create a fundraising event of your own or, if you’re strapped for ideas, take a look at our suggestions for some inspiration.
Whether you’re an individual, a group of friends, a school or an employee at a company, we really appreciate your help in making the effort to raise funds for those with mental health issues across the globe.
How to fundraise for us
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to raise money for The Shaw Mind Foundation, so you can choose to use either our Just Giving page, our Virgin Money Giving page, Facebook, or the more traditional method of using a sponsorship form (for our UK residents only).
Inspiration for your fundraising
We’ve designed two guides for individual and corporate fundraising, so whether you’re an individual looking for some exciting ideas or an employee looking for a way to get the entire company involved, we have a guide for you.
You can find these below (though please note that they are in PDF formats so you will need the latest version of Adobe Reader).
We’ve created a range of marketing and other promotional material that you can use for free for your event on our website. From sample press releases, posters, website banners, and logos, head over to our marketing suite to find everything you need for your fundraising event.
We are always open to new ideas, so if you ever have any great fundraising tips that you would like to share with other fundraisers, please contact us.
