We value working in partnership with our generous funders and we have a range of ‘live’ projects that you could contribute to. Alternatively, we are happy to collaborate to identify a project that more closely aligns with your interests. We’d be happy to meet with you and could arrange a tour of any of our 10 hospitals to find an area where you feel your funding could achieve your aims whilst making a difference to our patients and their families.

Our team is experienced at producing reports that demonstrate what has been made possible through charitable funding. We are committed to the reporting requirements of our funders and will provide timely, meaningful updates at agreed points. It is also possible to arrange a visit so you’re able to see first-hand the impact your donation has made.

We will work with you to communicate your Charitable Trust’s support in whichever way you wish. If you would like your gift to remain anonymous, we will not include details of it in any of our communication channels, including on our website, social media or in our annual report or impact reports. Alternatively, you can choose which channels you would like us to publicise your support.

MFT has policies for recognising charitable support in our hospitals and these can be shared with donors when considering making a donation.

Our primary aim is to spend as much as possible on our vital services to help support patients across MFT. We are very mindful of how we spend our money – 75p in every £1 goes straight to MFT’s vital services and 25p goes to fund the running and development of the charity. This breakdown is standard practice across the charitable sector and comparable to other NHS charities of our size.
