Arty-Folks’ Fundraising Promise

As an Arty-Folks supporter, you are playing a direct role in helping us change the lives of the people who need our services. Without your support, this work would not be possible and we will never take it for granted.  We are fully committed to being transparent about the way we use funds and we will process your donation promptly and acknowledge it in line with your wishes.

We will be honest and open in our communications with you. Sometimes, we will need to change some of the details of our beneficiaries to respect their right to privacy and confidentiality. However, the stories we share are true and in their own words.  They will give you a picture of the nature of our work and what your support is helping to achieve.

More than 90p in every £1 donated to Arty-Folks goes directly towards our frontline services and we spend less than 10% on overheads such as phone, IT, and office costs.   We need to raise £70,000 each year to run the whole programme that support 150 individuals to improve mental well-being.  This amounts to £467 per person! 

This is not a lot compared to what most charities need to raise, but it is a lot to us!  Unless you specifically tell us otherwise, we will use your donation towards the area of greatest need in our work.
