Community Fundraising

York Mind could not continue to run its vital services without the support of our amazing local community fundraisers and supporters. Although we are affiliated with Mind nationally, York Mind itself is an independently run local charity and financially separate from National Mind. This means the money raised through fundraising will stay in the local area and provide much needed services for people in and around York with mental health difficulties.

How can I help?

  • Organise your own event - Fundraise by organising your own bake sale, coffee morning, walk/active challenge, pub quiz, open mic, non-uniform day - anything! Already host a regular event and want to do one for charity? Even better! Get in touch and we can support you.

  • Celebrate and donate Do you have a special occasion coming up? Could you do something amazing and ask family and friends to make a donation to York Mind instead of a birthday, wedding or Christmas present?

  • Take part in an organised event - Take on a challenge or join one of our upcoming events. We host a variety of events throughout the year, and have charity spaces on plenty of active challenges. Click here to see our full offer of events!

  • Volunteer with us - Become a Community Fundraising Volunteer, to give us a helping hand. We're always looking for people to help out at events and collections, assist with admin and distribute resources. There's something for everyone, and we're always up for suggestions of how you can best use your skills to help the charity. Click here if you're interested in volunteering!

We can provide... 

  • Collection tins / buckets 
  • Leaflets 
  • Banners and flags 
  • T-shirts / running vests
  • Sponsorship forms
