Donate & Fundraise

Thank you for visiting our donations and fundraising page. As a small charity, we do not have the resources to have a donation feature on our website.

You are able to send a one-off donation or set up a regular gift via our Virgin Giving Money account. We use Virgin Giving Money as opposed to other donation websites such as JustGiving, as they take a smaller proportion of the donation to cover administration costs, such as processing the donation and claiming Gift Aid if applicable. To find out more about Virgin Money Giving’s fees, please see here.

If you would like the McPin Foundation to receive 100% of your donation please deposit the money by making a bank transfer, you can make a one-off donation this way or set up a regular gift through a standing order with your bank. You can also make a donation by sending a cheque made payable The McPin Foundation to our office.


Gift Aid

Make your donation go further by gift aiding it. Are you a UK taxpayer? If so, donating through Gift Aid means the McPin Foundation can claim an extra 25p from HMRC for every £1 you give. It won’t cost you any extra. If you are eligible, please fill out and return our Gift Aid Declaration Form.


Fundraising Event or Challenge

You could also support our research through a fundraising event or challenge. McPin is currently recruiting for people to take part in RideLondon 2019, a 100 mile challenge from London, to the countryside in Surrey and back. For more information and to apply for one of our limited places please click here.

If you would like to fundraise for the McPin Foundation with another event or challenge, please contact us as we may be able to support you by providing leaflets, fundraising buckets and promoting your event on our social media platforms.


Our commitment is that all donations from individuals will fund projects that promote user-focused mental health research. We currently cover our administrative functions from the charity reserves that were donated by the founding family when The McPin Foundation was first established.

If you have any questions about donating to or fundraising for the McPin Foundation, please contact us.
