STV Children's Appeal
The STV Children’s Appeal is committed to helping children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland.The money raised by the STV Children’s Appeal helps make a real difference in the lives of Scotland’s children and young people by providing practical help like food and warm clothes; creating opportunities for training and employability; and enabling social and emotional support for those who need it most.
In six years since launch, the STV Children’s Appeal has raised £13.7m and so far made 722 big and small awards for projects across all 32 local authority areas in Scotland, providing much needed support to over 62,000 children.
The charity was launched in 2011 by The Hunter Foundation and STV. In 2013, The Wood Foundation pledged its support to the Appeal for projects in the North East.
Every single penny raised by the STV Children’s Appeal stays in Scotland and 100% of donations are spent on the children who need it most, as all overheads are met by STV and The Hunter Foundation. In 2015, the Scottish Government once again committed to match fund the first £1m raised.
