How you can support us

We are passionate about partnering with our donors. We explore the areas of our work that are most important to our donors, and the ways in which we can work together to achieve the most impact. We define philanthropy as a gift of £5,000 or more. 

From making a one-off or multi-year gift, to donating shares or giving through a trust or foundation, there are many ways your support can help impact better services and rights for people with mental health problems.

You can also give via your donor-advised fund (DAF). Acting like a charitable investment account, you can donate cash as well as make gifts of shares and property through your fund with your DAF provider. You can request a grant distribution to Mind by referencing our charity number (no.219830).

With Women in Mind, an inspiring collective funding young women and young people most affected by trauma.

Transformative peer support services, online and face-to-face.


Supporting the mental health of racialised communities.


Answering more calls to our 3 helplines: the Infoline, Welfare benefits line and Legal line.


Supporting the mental health of future generations, as we expand our work in schools and universities.

What our philanthropists say

"We wanted to help support an organisation that is an expert in all aspects of mental health. Mind fitted the criteria of being well-run. It has a good reputation. In a small way, we’re making a difference to the stigma associated with mental illness. It has helped our grief by openly committing to Mind."

Margaret and her husband David began supporting us following the death of their daughter, Anna, who lived with anorexia and depression for many years.

"We are moved and motivated to support Mind because of the national impact they have on stigma, raising awareness of mental health in general, and their ability to influence governmental policies and budgets. We are always impressed with the very clear vision of what Mind wants to accomplish."

The Ellerdale Trust awards grants to local charities in the UK.

They've also been supporting Mind for 14 years.
