We rely on the generosity of people like you and there are so many ways to get involved and support the work of The Mayfly Project UK. However you choose to support us, know that you are helping to change the lives of young people in foster care across the UK. We truly believe in the term #flyfishingfamily and are thankful to have support in many forms!
The gift of mentorship is a gift of time, which means so much to the children we work with. To be a project mentor you don’t have to be a professional fly fisher or social worker, we are looking for people who are dedicated to improving the lives of children and can commit to our projects.
Help us change the lives of children in foster care by donating to our projects! As we are building projects we are in need of financial contributions, grant opportunities, and private donors who want to team up to help us change the lives of children who need it most. We appreciate our donors and know TMPUK could not take flight without your kind generosity. Please contact us for further information about donating.
There are many ways to fundraise for TMPUK. Whether you host a community event, a birthday fundraiser or a sporting challenge, no effort is too small and we are so grateful for your support. The money raised by our fundraisers supports our local projects and helps us to develop our programme nationally. Get in touch if you have a fundraising idea, we’re here to help!
Partnerships are what allows TMPUK take flight across the UK. We partner in many ways, working to get more children out on the water fly fishing. Some partners have funded specific elements of our programmes whilst others have worked to sponsor a number of children to participate in a project. Please reach out to us to discuss the many creative ways we can partner and change lives together.
We appreciate and accept donations of items that can be used for auctions or projects. We accept waders and fly fishing gear (new or gently used), gift certificates or food for our outings, petrol certificates for foster families, residential group homes or mentors, and anything that will help us make our outings a huge success. Please contact us for further questions about in-kind donations.
Beyond changing the lives of children in foster care, we greatly care about taking care of the environment. We are always searching for new ways to teach and encourage our mentees towards conservation efforts. As we continue to build the conservation initiative of our programme, we appreciate partnering with companies and foundations who are passionate about supporting our conservation mission.
