Ways to donate

Thank you for donating to the McPin Foundation. To keep up to date with how your support contributes to our work, sign up to our quarterly newsletter.

Virgin Money Giving

You are able to send a one-off donation or set up a regular gift via our Virgin Money Giving 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. To find out more about Virgin Money Giving’s fees, please see here.

Bank Transfer

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. Fill out our donations form below and don’t forget to make your donation go further with Gift Aid, if you are eligible. 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.


You can also make a donation by sending a cheque made payable the McPin Foundation to our office.

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