Fundraising

Your support is changing lives.

Our fundraising journey began in 2011.

Since then thousands of you have joined Team SAMH and we couldn’t be more grateful and inspired by your incredible efforts. You have helped so many people who you might never meet but who have decided to share their stories. Emma told us how talking, friendship and salsa dancing helped on her road to recovery.

One of the five ways to wellbeing is give. It feels great to give. Whether it’s your time or money just imagine all the good you are doing for yourself as well as others. Let your imagination run wild with all the brilliant money making ideas you can come up with. We’d love to help get you started so get in touch.

If the imagination bank is running on empty then we’ve got some ideas which others have tried and tested for you.

Get Active

Pull on your trainers or strap yourself in – we’ve got the perfect challenge for you. Everything from running round Loch Ness to flying through the St Andrews sky.

Take me to the events page.

Get Together

Connecting with others, without the aid of technology and social media, is great for our wellbeing. Seeing friends and family to chat over dinner or for a morning coffee (with cake of course!) can be a fundraiser too.

Take me to fundraising ideas.

Get Creative

Calling all Scotland’s students. Someone once said we are at our most creative when we’re young which means schools, colleges and universities in Scotland are bursting with brilliant ideas.

We’re building our network of student fundraisers and we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch with fundraising@samh.org.uk to chat about your ideas and how we can support you.
