We are now, more than ever, asking for your help to enable our team to deliver the support that many of our young people need. We want to ensure that our services are accessible to as many young people and their families as possible, including overcoming financial barriers that parents, carers, schools and other agencies might be facing. We have bold aspirations and we would love you to join us on our journey.

Young Minds Matter receives no government or NHS funding and relies entirely on donations and fundraising. We are a not-for-profit organisation recognised as charitable by HMRC for tax purposes. Please help us using the options below, so that we can continue to support our young people.

Direct into our bank

This is one of the most cost effective ways for us to receive single donations as it avoids any commission to 3rd parties. Our bank details are as follows:

Bank: NatWest, Stratford-upon-Avon
Account Name: Young Minds Matter
Sort Code: 602041
Account Number: 48019720

Please let us know if you’ve sent a donation, and please include your name and address, or email, so we can thank you for your support.

Please don’t forget Gift Aid

The Government’s Gift Aid scheme allows us to reclaim tax on personal donations. This means that for every £1 you give to Young Minds Matter, we can reclaim 25p from the tax man. It’s easy, you just need to complete a simple Gift Aid Declaration form which can be printed via the link below or we can forward a copy to you.

Regular Giving

Donating regularly on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis is one of the very best ways in which you can support our work. As a charity which relies solely on fundraising and voluntary donations, regular donations really help us to plan for the future.

If you would like to support us with a regular standing order donation from your bank or building society account, these are our bank details:

Bank: NatWest, Stratford-upon-Avon
Account Name: Young Minds Matter
Sort Code: 602041
Account Number: 48019720

Please let us know once the standing order is set up, and please include your name and address, or email, so we can thank you for your ongoing support.

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is an easy and convenient way to give regularly to Young Minds Matter direct from your salary. Donations are taken before tax, so each pound you donate will actually cost you less!

For example, if you choose to give £10 per month as a 20% taxpayer, the actual cost to you is £8. If you pay tax at 40%, your £10 donation costs you just £6.

Ask your employer about giving to Young Minds Matter from your salary (Give As You Earn is the best known scheme). If for some reason they don’t offer a scheme, please consider setting up a regular standing order donation instead.

Please let us know if you’re planning to support us this way, and please include your name and address, or email, so we can thank you for your ongoing support.

Organise a Fundraiser

Raising funds for Young Minds Matter can be great fun, as well as providing us with much-needed money to continue our charitable work.

You might want to organise something on your own, or perhaps you’d like to join with a group of friends. Maybe you’d like to get some colleagues together at work or perhaps you can do something with your child and their class mates (or the whole school!). Or you might be a member of a club or community group.

Whatever you choose to do, you can be sure that we will spend your money sensibly and responsibly, doing our best for all those young people who need our support. On their behalf and from all of us, “Thank you!”

Corporate Giving

Young Minds Matter relies entirely on fundraising and voluntary donations to fund our work. But it’s not just individual contributions that we need. Your company could make a huge difference to our young people. Here are some of the things you or your employer could do.

Charity of the Year

Many companies, large and small, choose a charity that they’d like to support for a year (or maybe longer). This may be decided by a staff vote, a charity committee, or it might be left to senior management. The charity then provides a focus for a range of staff and customer fundraising, providing lots of opportunities for social events, staff development and customer engagement.

With our focus on supporting young people, potentially your future colleagues or employees, we believe that we’d be a great Charity of the Year for you!

If you’re not sure whether your company has a Charity of the Year, or how it’s chosen, then please ask someone in your organisation. We’d really like to work with you – and them!

Cause-Related Marketing

We’re very proud of what we do and even prouder of the young people we support. Whatever field your company is in, we’d like to think that you’d feel pretty good about it too. We could be a very good match for each other.

Customers love to know that the products and services they buy do some good in the community too. There are countless examples of a charity and company working together, resulting in funds for the charity and increased sales and customer loyalty for the company. It sounds like a cliché, but it’s a win-win situation.

We’d love to talk to you about Young Minds Matter working with your company, to create a really successful commercial partnership!

Corporate Grants

If you’re a company which doesn’t have a Charity of the Year, you can still make grants to charity, as a way of enhancing your own reputation and doing some good in the community.

Or your company might have an established grant-making trust, to which they give a proportion of their profits annually. Charities, like Young Minds Matter, can then apply to receive a grant from the trust, depending on any criteria involved.

Either way, you can be sure that any grant we receive will be put to great use. We manage our funds carefully, keep costs as low as possible and spend our money in ways that we believe will make the greatest difference to young people who need our support.

Matched Giving

Some companies run a “Matched Giving Scheme” which means that they will make a donation to Young Minds Matter equal to the amount of money that you have raised. As well as asking your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you, ask your company too, to see if they’re prepared to match your fundraising efforts! If they aren’t able to match your donation, they might at least make a contribution.

Payroll Giving

This is the simplest way for employees to give a regular donation in support of Young Minds Matter. Donations are taken directly out of earnings before tax is deducted, so every pound donated comes to us in full. If you don’t already offer payroll giving, then please consider it, we’d be very thankful!

Thank You

Whatever you choose to do, you can be sure that your support makes a huge difference to our young people.

Our commitment to you is that any money you give to Young Minds Matter will be managed sensibly and responsibly. When we spend that money, we will do so carefully and in ways that we genuinely believe have the biggest impact on our mission, with the charity’s best interests at heart.

On behalf of everyone at Young Minds Matter and the young people that we support…

Thank You!”
