Fundraising


Scotland’s Kiltwalkers and The Hunter Foundation have raised a massive £5 million for over 900 Scottish charities in 2020.

In total in 2020, Kiltwalkers raised £2.5 million and The Hunter Foundation doubled that to £5 million.

Now we're looking forward to more fundraising in 2021! Scotland's Virtual Kiltwalk takes place across April 23 - 25 and all Scottish Charities can take part. We started out putting our best feet forward for Scotland’s bravest children and have grown to support all kinds of charities from all over Scotland.

JustGiving is the Kiltwalk’s recommended online fundraising platform. Online fundraising is collected automatically and is the quickest and easiest way to raise funds with the Kiltwalk.

Our Fundraising Model

Our model has been designed to maximise your fundraising efforts whilst making the Kiltwalk a sustainable platform for fundraising in Scotland.

All money raised by Kiltwalkers must come through the Kiltwalk before we pay out the funds to your charity as this is the only way we can gather an accurate figure on how much has collectively been raised, which is vital in order to add the 50% top-up. This also allows us to claim any eligible Gift Aid.

The Kiltwalk retains Gift Aid in order to make our platform sustainable and guarantee that 150% of fundraising can go to your chosen charity. Please note, that if funds do not come via the Kiltwalk, the additional 50% boost from The Hunter Foundation cannot be paid to your charity. This is part of our terms and conditions and vital to ensuring the sustainability of the Kiltwalk.

Fundraising Deadlines

Under normal circumstances, your fundraising receives the 50% boost from Sir Tom and The Hunter Foundation, please have your fundraising in by no later than two months after your chosen event.*

Fundraising from Scotland's Virtual Kiltwalk must be submitted by the 3rd of May 2021 and we will begin paying charities by the 10th of May.

*Please note this year's deadlines have been brought forward to make sure our charities have access to these vital funds as soon as possible. Check out Scotland's Virtual event page for the latest updates.
