Where your money goes

Find out how the Kiltwalk fundraising Platform works

Helping you raise big funds for charity

When Kiltwalk was rescued by The Hunter Foundation in 2016, it was the mission of Sir Tom Hunter to create a fundraising movement in Scotland. Now 9 years down the line, big-hearted Kiltwalkers, together with The Hunter Foundation, have raised and distributed an astonishing £47.5 million for 3,660 Scottish Charities. It’s phenomenal!

Every single penny of Kiltwalker fundraising has gone to the Kiltwalkers favourite charities and this is all thanks to The Hunter Foundation, which underwrites Kiltwalk, and Kiltwalk sponsors.

Kiltwalk continues to be the lowest-cost fundraising platform in Scotland by making it super simple for people to join in and raise what they can for their charity.

Funding The Kiltwalk Events

Kiltwalk events are funded by walker registration fees, corporate sponsors and The Hunter Foundation, which underwrites all Kiltwalk costs. Previously, Kiltwalk retained Gift Aid (same as Children In Need and Comic Relief) to help deliver fantastic events and The Hunter Foundation topped up walker fundraising. Now The Hunter Foundation covers all Kiltwalk costs allowing Gift Aid to be released to Charities. Kiltwalker fundraising goes directly to their chosen charity who can claim all eligible Gift Aid (up to 25% extra*).

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

How Charities Receive Their Fundraising

All fundraising goes directly to your chosen charity via your JustGiving page (the page created for you during Kiltwalk registration). All funds are transferred to your Charity directly by the fundraising deadline (two months post-event). Your charity can then claim for all eligible Gift Aid (up to 25%* extra). Please note, that all offline fundraising must be sent directly to your chosen charity. Get in touch with your charity for the latest copy of their sponsor form.

If you’ve chosen to fundraise for ‘Kiltwalk’, all of your fundraising will come to Kiltwalk in the first instance, we claim all eligible Gift Aid and send it on to the STV Children’s Appeal (our Official Grant Making Partner). Remember to download a copy of the Kiltwalk sponsorship form.

*Your selected Charity is responsible for any eligible gift aid on your fundraising. For more information on Gift Aid declaration please visit Gift Aid Declarations www.gov.uk/claim-gift-aid/gift-aid-declarations
