Donations

To support our work in supporting the hundreds of thousands of male victims of domestic abuse and domestic violence in the UK, the ManKind Initiative relies on donations from:

  • Individuals as donations, sponsored activities and bequests
  • Companies (as part of their charitable giving/corporate social responsibility) – many raise funds on charity days or Charity(ies) of the Year campaigns
  • Company sponsorship for our helpline, directory and other activities
  • Trusts and foundations
  • Bequests

Any money raised and any donations or bequests that are received are used with due care and for specific purposes – primarily the helpline.

Recent donations have been used to:

  • Fund the continuation of the helpline
  • Produce new leaflets, posters and banners at events
  • Buy new equipment for the helpline
  • Install a new help-line phone system
