Fundraise for life-changing mental health research

You can support our research and raise the profile of our vital research through a fundraising event or challenge. You can take part in one of the events we have listed below or you can organise your own event. From auctions to fun-runs, we’d love to hear about what you have planned. We may be able to provide you with some resources such as a fundraising bucket, running vests or leaflets for your event. We, of course, will help publicise it on social media. If you think you could benefit from this or can think of other support we may be able to give, please do contact us.


How do I collect funds?

To raise your money online you will need to register as a fundraiser with Virgin Money Giving, where you can set up a fundraising page where your friends and family can make donations. We use Virgin Giving Money as opposed to other fundraising websites, 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.

You can also collect funds offline and deposit them as a lump sum, find out how to do this on our donation page.


Ride London 2019

McPin is currently recruiting for people to take part in RideLondon 2019, a 100-mile cycling challenge from London, to the countryside in Surrey and back and we would love for you to join our team!

Over the last four years, our riders have raised thousands of pounds to support vital mental health research, and had great fun doing it! This year, with your help, we want to raise even more money and awareness.

Find out more information including how to apply for one of our limited places.

If you have any questions about fundraising or making a donation please get in touch.



See below for some of the fun our supporters have had raising funds for life-changing 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.
