Support Us On Our Mission


Why fundraise for The Shaw Mind Foundation?

The Shaw Mind Foundation relies on public support. Without your help and donations, our projects cannot go ahead.Our trustees don’t receive any of the money raised through donations, so you can be certain that your donation goes directly to helping the cause you care about.

Money raised can help fund things such as:

  • Free mental health education sessions in schools*
  • Helping people who have been subjected to mental health injustices and fighting their corner so that they are able to be treated fairly, and without prejudice.
  • Providing self-help support and resources to schools, colleges and universities
  • And much more.
