Donate to support the Open Minds Foundation
Thank you for supporting the Open Minds Foundation.
Your donation has an immediate impact on the crucial work that we do. Coercive control affects people of all ages, but we focus on young people (aged 5-18), as studies have shown they are most likely to be coerced.
We champion critical thinking to create a world without coercion and use 100% of the money you donate to educate young people and the general public on coercion.
How your donation makes a difference
We are aiming to raise £10,000 to fund our next tranche of training resources for schools, to reach senior school pupils with critical thinking and coercive control education. Our developments include:
- Curriculum aligned resources for ages 12+.
- Interactive resource development including videos, games, and quizzes.
- Internationally adapted resources to suit residents of any country.
Every donation you make takes us closer to our goal. All our costs are covered by private donations from our Board so 100% of the money you donate is used on these solutions.
Why not become a regular donor?
By donating regularly, we can plan our work and reach even more people with our resources. It’s easy to do and you can rest assured in the knowledge that you can cancel this at any time.
Our next steps
We used our first batch of donations to provide educational resources for primary schools and we are raising another £10,000 to provide educational resources for 12- to 18-year-olds.
Thank you for helping us to prevent coercive control.
Helpful Questions & Answers
Is it safe and secure for me to donate online to Open Minds?

Our merchant terminal is provided by PayPal and PayPal uses Secure Sockets Layer technology to encrypt all data submitted to and from our donations web page. SSL renders donors’ personal information, including credit card information, unreadable to any outsiders. SSL is supported by all major web browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. (To find out if your browser is connected to a secure transaction server, look for a locked gold padlock in the lower right-hand corner of your IE or Firefox browser.) Additionally, your personal information will be stored on PayPal’s servers, which are heavily guarded, both physically and electronically.
