Supporting Charities

Mind Tools provides ongoing support and funding to a variety of charities. Here are some that we work with:

Mind Tools is proud to be partnered with charity: water, a non-profit organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to developing countries, helping to improve health and education for those in need.

Katha is a non-profit organization that helps to bring children living in poverty into quality education. Over the past 28 years, Katha has helped more than 900,000 children - training 21,500 of them in IT and taught 90,000 women in income-generation and social activism skills.

Education is a large part of what Mind Tools does, so it was important for us to find an organization that believes in its value as much as we do!

Toilet Twinning provides people in the world’s poorest communities with access to a proper latrine, clean water, and all the information that they need to stay healthy.

We have twinned our restrooms with restrooms halfway around the world, and are proud to have toilet twins in Cambodia, the Philippines, India, Uganda, and Guatemala.

Local Charities

As well as supporting international charities, Mind Tools also lends a hand to those closer to our home in the UK. This list of local charities was carefully selected by Mind Tools employees and includes: Chestnut Tree House, Macmillan Cancer Support, St Barnabas House, Whitehawk Inn, Barnardo’s, Alzheimer’s Society, Scope, Survivors of Bereavement, The Children’s Trust, Echo, Buddys Cafe, and Parkinson’s UK.

Mind Tools is also a carbon neutral organization and was presented with a certificate from Carbon Footprint in October 2016.
