Welcome to Fundraising

Whether you have supported us before or this is the first time you have landed on this page, we would like to thank you for taking a step towards fundraising for Care Experienced people.  

Fundraising can sometimes feel a bit daunting – What can I do to help? Where do I even begin? What is the best way to raise money? 

Well we are here to help and support you along the way. We already have lots events and activities for you to choose from, or we can help you shape your own fundraising idea.  

Before you get started – We would like to introduce you to the team. They will help point you in the direction of a successful and enjoyable fundraising experience.  

Marie-Claire Director of Fundraising and Development

I’m Marie-Claire and I’m Director of Fundraising and Development for Who Cares? Scotland. My role is to ensure we have a solid platform of funding and resources, to allow us to deliver our important work with Care Experienced people across Scotland. I write lots of reports and look at lots of budgets, but I do occasionally emerge into the fresh air and have even walked two 23 mile Kiltwalks to raise funds for our work!

Gavin – Fundraising and Partnerships Manager

Hi, I’m Gavin and I’m the Fundraising and Partnership Manager for Who Cares? Scotland. When I’m not taking part in endless Kiltwalks, I have the pleasure of leading (annoying) my wonderful fundraising team. I also work alongside our corporate friends to make the most of our partnerships. If you would like to learn how your organisation can support our work, get involved and fulfil your corporate responsibility interests, please check out our Corporate Partnerships page.

Kerry – Fundraising Coordinator Trusts and Grants

Hi, I’m Kerry and I work as the Fundraising Co-ordinator for Who Cares? Scotland – I mainly focus on working with Trusts and Foundations.  This means I get to know lots of different departments within the organisation, the amazing work they do, the difference they make, and then try and source funding for them to keep on doing it.  I spend most of my time reading and writing everything Who Cares? Scotland, you could say that I’m the Librarian of the Fundraising Department – if you need to know more please email here.

Laura – Fundraising and Partnerships Support Officer

Hi, I’m Laura and I am a Fundraising Support Officer, I have worked for Who Cares? Scotland since 2016. My role within the team is being the most organised! I support my lovely colleagues with events such as the Kiltwalk  – my nickname is “Kiltwalk Laura”. I also keep in contact with our Monthly donors by sending thank you cards and letters of appreciation. If you would like to make a donation and receive one of my lovely cards, you can do so here.
