Pledge your donation

We are happy to accept general cash donations. Your contribution will go towards projects focused on food security and enterprise development. You can also select a project that is close to your heart.

Product for Purpose

Product for Purpose is an initiative created to contribute resources to the people of the Fresh Produce Industry and beyond. We request in-kind donations and items as a means to support our beneficiaries.

Donate a service

Your skills contribution is an invaluable asset to the Mike Loutfie Foundation, and we encourage you to volunteer your expert skills and/or professional product and/or programme to our operational activities.

Fundraise

Make us your charity of choice when you are setting your personal bests… run, walk, cycle, swim, climb mountains and donate the proceeds to one of our projects.

Encourage your friends to contribute to our projects on your birthday or anniversary, instead of buying you a gift.
