We are very grateful for all the support we receive. Some people even send wonderful messages of encouragement - they really make our day!
There are many creative ways to contribute, which we have detailed below. If you would have any questions about giving to mental health recovery, contact the team on 0207 422 5544, or email [email protected].
A single donation can change a life. It ensures immediate assistance for people in crisis, those experiencing distress or feeling on the edge of a breakdown.
A donation of £10 means we can give 30 minutes of emotional support and practical help to someone in crisis. Make a donation today.
Regular donations help meet immediate needs and allow us to plan for the years ahead. From just £2 per month, you can play a vital role in SANE's future.
We’re always particularly moved by the thoughtfulness of those who choose to donate to mental health recovery at a time of great sadness.
Our supporters tell us donating in memory of a loved one is a positive way to commemorate their life. Knowing their kindness will help the tens of thousands of people SANE supports every year can help people through the grieving process.
Create an online tribute page
One way to remember your loved one is to set up an online tribute page. You can set up a page by visiting JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving. You’ll be able to add photographs, a biography, and special memories, and family and friends will be able to share their memories, too. Unlike a standard online fundraising page, tribute pages have no end-date, so can be added to on birthdays, anniversaries, or at any other special time, ensuring your loved ones’ memory will not be forgotten.
Arranging for donations to be collected at a funeral can add a positive aspect to an incredibly sad event. We can provide you with personalised collection envelopes and Gift Aid forms, which will allow your guests to send their donations directly to SANE in their own time. If you would prefer not to ask your guests for donations directly, an option is to leave a collection box out for guests to contribute if they wish. We will send out a collection box and personalised laminated poster, which will include the deceased's name.
f you would prefer to have family flowers only at the funeral, you might like to consider asking your guests to donate what they would have spent on flowers to mental health recovery. Place an announcement in your local newspaper or the order of service, to let people know your wishes. Advise your funeral director of this request – they will be able to inform people who inquire about arrangements for the funeral. Many funeral directors are happy to collect cheques and donations, and forward them to SANE on your behalf.
If you have any questions about donating in memory, please contact the SANE fundraising team on 0207 422 5544, or email [email protected].
When you're providing for your family in a Will, please think about a gift that will help people affected by mental illness. Gifts of all sizes, and from many generous people, have been a significant factor in funding SANE's work over the last 25 years.
If you are celebrating, make the occasion even more special by asking loved ones to donate to SANE. The thoughtfulness of people who remember us in this way also brings our work to the attention of a wider audience, and helps raise awareness of mental illness.
