Who funds Men Beyond 50?
Men Beyond 50 is part of the not for profit Conscious Ageing Trust Charity. We receive no financial support from the Government and are completely self funded, relying 100% on public donations. We are continually fundraising, and without donations cannot sustain or grow the MB50 community.
What do we need funds for?
– To create a new ongoing and self sustaining MB50 Group (set up activities, facilitating, training and hand-over) costs £2,500
– To create an MB50 Storytelling Event (putting on a performance or workshop, publicising and broadcasting) costs vary between £500-£1000
– To continue and expand the “Conscious Ageing 50+” Campaign supporting the Men Beyond 50 Project, that helps to bring about social change and community engagement costs £1200 per month. (You can choose a specific activity to sponsor if you want to).
Will my Donation make a difference?
Every penny we raise as a charity goes into our events/activities and into supporting older men’s mental health. Donations that enable us to create more mens support groups, and to hold more events for men (and their families) mean we can reach more over 50’s experiencing feelings of uselessness and lack of purpose, isolation, depression and in more extreme cases suicide. We will be able to continue educating and informing a wider audience about the role of ageing and its effects on men’s health whilst addressing the stigmas that older men so often encounter as their position in the home and community gets fuzzier with age.
We will shortly be able to take donations instantly and online.. until then, please email us!
