Giving to The Mind and Soul Foundation
In 2005 when Mind and Soul launched, we were just a couple of friends trying to say something about mental health and our Christian faith! We could never have known how things would grow and develop over the next 10 years and beyond. Thanks to the grace of God and the encouragement of you all, we now carry the responsibility of having a significant impact on thinking around mental health and Christian spirituality here in the UK (and increasingly overseas).
We had a little 'seed income' from family in the early days and have used this along the way to develop our site, deliver conferences and develop resources. It is important that you all know that none of the directors have ever received an income from MASF. In fact we have largely funded the work ourselves. It has been our joy to do this because we believe so passionately in the inclusion and full participation of people struggling with mental health issues in the church.
Over the last few years we have begun to receive some really kind donations largely from individuals who are passionate about our work, or from churches who have given in response to talks or training we have offered. This has enables us to do even more and has woken us up to the potential of having an even greater impact for good. Resources like the Access Pack, The Stuff of Life and the website refresh have all been in response to this generous giving. But we would like to do even more and have plans for a MASF App to support Christians struggling with mental health issues through the day. It is also our ambition that we might be able to fund a part time administrator help us improve our delivery. (We all work full time independently of MASF).
Every donation is hugely valuable to us and is carefully handled by out treasurer and board of trustees. We are particularly grateful for people who give regularly by Standing Order as it enables us to plan our finances better over the course of the year. Equally we are so grateful to churches who decide to partner with us by offering us part of their collection on the Sunday closest to World Mental Health Day. In fact a monthly gift from as little as £5 would allow The Mind and Soul Foundation to help us continue our work. We would like to invite you to prayerfully consider supporting our work financially and have mapped out several practical ways of doing this in the links below.
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider this request.
