Kiltwalk’s Fundraising Model

Kiltwalk started out putting our best feet forward for Scotland’s bravest children and has grown to support all kinds of Charities from all over Scotland. The beauty of Kiltwalk is that you can fundraise for ANY charity you care about.

Every single penny, every pound you raise goes directly to your chosen charity PLUS your charity can claim all eligible Gift Aid (up to 25% extra) on donations so make sure you encourage your contacts to tick the Gift Aid box when donating. Find out more about Gift Aid eligibility here

Previously, Kiltwalk retained Gift Aid (same as Children In Need and Comic Relief) to help pay for Kiltwalk events. Now, instead of a top up, The Hunter Foundation underwrites Kiltwalk’s costs, allowing Gift Aid to be released to Charities ensuring up to 125%* of what you raise will go to your chosen Charity.

Our fundraising platform has been designed to maximise your fundraising efforts whilst making the Kiltwalk a sustainable platform for fundraising in Scotland. Find out more about the Kiltwalk fundraising platform here.

*Your selected Charity is responsible for any eligible gift aid on your fundraising. For more information on Gift Aid declaration please visit

How fundraising works at Kiltwalk

Online fundraising

Once you’ve signed up for an event and selected a charity, our recommended online fundraising platform, JustGiving, automatically creates a Kiltwalk online fundraising page for you. Simply share the link with friends and family, ask them to donate and you’re off to a flying start! If you didn’t spot it during Kiltwalk registration, check your email inbox for an activation link that will have been sent to you.

At the fundraising deadline for your event (two months after your event) your fundraising will be collected automatically and sent onwards to your chosen charity. It’s as simple as that!

Offline fundraising

Fundraising online is the quickest and easiest method of getting funds to your charity but if you’d prefer to gather your funds offline, then please get in touch with your chosen charity and request a Sponsor Form.

A sponsor form gathers the details of your donors and most importantly will allow your chosen charity to gather key details to claim Gift Aid on their donations (if they’ve given permission). All offline funds must be sent directly to your chosen charity by two months after your event.

‘Kiltwalk’ fundraisers (raising for STV Children’s Appeal)

Every penny and every pound raised will go to fantastic local projects supporting children and families affected by poverty here in Scotland. We collect your funds, claim all eligible Gift Aid and send to the STV Children’s Appeal, who ensure that children and families that need it most in Scotland benefit from every penny.
