ABOUT MK CHARITIES
We're building a platform that connects the Milton Keynes community to its charities and organisations.
MK Charities is an initiative founded during the 2020 pandemic at a time when Milton Keynes and the rest of the world stood still and stayed in isolation. Covid-19 had a huge impact and burden on businesses, charities and the lives of the community.
With all outdoor fundraising and charity events having to be cancelled,
the community of Milton Keynes and its 1,400 charities and community groups within the area needed help and support more than ever with this unprecedented demand. The hashtag for #inthistogether was trending nationwide on social media and the need to come together was even more important.
As we are all aware charities don’t just need donations, they need volunteers, fundraisers and support through social media. MK Charities is the website where you will find all the information you need to know about the community we live in and how you could make a difference by donating either time, money or other activities that can increase much needed funds.
Our website will be regularly updated with charities and opportunities to support.
