Donate & Fundraise

The McPin Foundation is a registered charity, working to transform mental health research by putting the lived experience of people affected by mental health problems at the heart of research methods and the research agenda.

The McPin Foundation receives grants to deliver specific projects, but relies on donations from individuals to do the further work that will ensure we can achieve our goals and make a real difference to mental health research.

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.

We receive one-off donations, regular giving and the results of specific fundraising initiatives.  If you would like to make a donation our bank details are on the right.

In order for the McPin Foundation to receive 100% of your donation we ask for direct payment by BACS transfer from your bank or a cheque to our registered office. You can make a one off donation or set up regular giving through direct debit. Alternatively you can donate directly into our Virgin Money Giving account, (Virgin take a small cut of your donation to cover their costs).

You could also support our research through a fundraising event or challenge.

We are very grateful to all those people who have generously supported our work over the last few years. To you all, our heartfelt thanks.
