The money that we raise, either through fundraising or from generous donations from members of the public, helps us to support hundreds of people every week.

Making a donation

You can make donations to us online using the Enthuse donation platform. You can set up a monthly donation of £5, £10, £15 or an amount you choose. Or, you can make a one-off donation of any amount you choose.

  • A one-off payment of £10 pays for one hour of support for an adult with learning disabilities.
  • A monthly donation of £15 pays for the resources on a youth project for 15 children with learning disabilities.
  • A one-off payment of £25 pays for two hours of advice and support for a carer to help with future planning.

If you would prefer to donate via a cheque, please make it payable to ‘Sheffield Mencap Ltd’. Cheques and cash donations can be delivered to our reception at Norfolk Lodge. Please find our address on the Contact Page and we advise that you call us before visiting to make sure that somebody will be available to receive your donation.

Fundraising for us

There are lots of ways that you can fundraise for us, and by doing so, help us to make lives better for people with learning disabilities.

Whether you’re feeling adventurous and active, or if you’re a thrill-seeker looking for your next big challenge; sponsored runs, hikes, skydives, bungee jumps… even daring haircuts, are a brilliant way to raise money!

There are lots of events and gatherings you could organise to raise money and the best bit is, everyone gets to have a good time whilst fundraising.

Take a look at this list of 75 Fundraising Event Ideas from Eventbrite for some inspiration, and if you would like support in organising your event, speak to our fundraising manager, Vicky Toogood – she’s always full of good ideas and advice!

If you are fundraising for us, please use JustGiving to set up a page that is connected to our charity. You can do that here.

Charity partnerships & corporate support

We are always looking for businesses and organisations who share our values and would like to make a difference to a local independent charity. Every partnership is tailored to the business and what you would like to get out of the relationship, and we can offer volunteer days, training, and promotion as well as many other benefits. Please contact our fundraising manager to find out more.
