There are so many ways to fundraise in memory of a loved one, from running marathons, to organising bake sales, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

CALM at work
Wherever you work - lead the way for your industry by bringing CALM to your colleagues and customers
It can take us a few days to process your donations once we have received them, but as soon as we do receive your donation we will send you a thank you letter by way of receipt.
A donation from yourself would mean a great deal to CALM and the people we support. The vast majority of the money we raise from generous donors like yourself are unrestricted, meaning we can spend it on all areas of our work. It could go to our Helpline and Webchat service, which answered over 157,000 calls from people in need in 2021.
To give you an idea of what this looks like, for every £1 received by CALM, 83p is spent on charitable activities (helpline/webchat, campaigns and other services). The remaining 17p goes on fundraising and governance. You can also find out more about how we and other charities spend their money by looking on the Charities commission website.
CALM currently spends 83% of its expenditure on delivering our services: that’s answering calls and webchats on our helpline; working with communities across the country; and campaigning for better awareness and understanding of suicide and its devastating impact. Everything else is spent on keeping the charity running and fundraising to ensure we can help the hundreds of thousands of people who need our support every year.
