The easiest way to donate to the Mariposa Trust online is by using JustGiving, which allow you to securely donate using a debit or credit card.

Regular Donations

If you are able to consider a regular donation, this will help us to strategically plan our work, as we will know what we will be receiving each month.

Postal Donations

You can donate in the traditional way, by posting a cheque made payable to The Mariposa Trust through to the main trust address.

A Message from the Founders

“Can you help us today? The Mariposa Trust relies on donations from people like you, to support it’s work in the UK and worldwide. Our plan is simple; to ensure everyone who goes through baby loss has the right care and support pre, during and post loss.

This is a big task, and the remembrance services (both physical and online), support services, resources and campaigning combine to make this plan a reality. To enable all of the plans to be achieved, will need further finance and support in kind, so please donate today, and help us acknowledge and remember the lives lost and cut short, and support those who are grieving.”

Become an Official Fundraiser

this is your chance to do something big, something worthwhile, something that will make a difference. Fundraising is how we as an organisation survive. It provides the finance that allows us to run services, provide support and make a difference in people’s lives. It generates the income to produce resources and get those into hospitals, doctors surgeries and clinics and allows us to push government and the NHS to improve baby loss support. The task is huge, and the need for funds essential, so the more fundraisers we have, the more we do.

We are currently recruiting 50 regional Fundraising Coordinators, to rally teams of people to hold fundraising events. It is a voluntary role (but just so you know it can be done around a full time job!). So if you have decided that this year you want to make a massive difference, to hundreds of thousands of people – This is the team for you – look no further, put your drink down and contact us right now!!!

If it scares you, if it feels like it may take you out of your comfort zone, that’s awesome – how will you ever know what you can achieve until you try!We can only continue to do what we do by raising funds, so show the world how much you appreciate SG and join the team (We are a lovely bunch – honest!) We need British and American team members!

If you want to chat about the role, PLEASE contact Jody and Lauren via a message on the Facebook Fundraising page or email us.

Do Something Special!

Changing the taboo nature of child loss is key for the Mariposa Trust, as well as improving the standard of care and support for anyone who loses a baby, but we can’t do it alone… we need your help!

The trust needs your support in lots of ways, and if you feel you can help please get in touch.

Whether you can simply tell your GP Surgery about the support we offer and any services in your area, distribute leaflets and posters about the Saying Goodbye services, or would consider joining our fundraising team, and help raise funds to support the work of the trust… every little helps.

If you think that throwing yourself out of a plane at 12,000ft (with a parachute) is your sort of thing, then why not take part in ‘Jump for Love’, a national Skydiving project run by the Mariposa Trust. This gives you the chance to raise funds for the charity, while taking part in what many people have described as a life changing experience. You can find out more at

The charity runs fundraising balls and other events around the UK each year, and we always need amazing team members to be involved in running these…could that be you?
