The Mandala Trust is a UK-based charity dedicated to supporting children and young people in vulnerable situations around the world. This is accomplished through the development of an ever-expanding network of volunteers, supporters, and community-based organisations who work together in friendship and solidarity. As a collective we are committed to the values of generosity, kindness, compassion, wisdom, and understanding.
Through targeting dedicated organisations and individuals working for their communities at a grassroots level, and supporting them through small grants, capacity building, and developing sustainability, we are able to achieve real and lasting benefits for those children and young people we aim to serve.
This ever-expanding circle of kindness which has become the Mandala Trust has now reached communities throughout the world. At the centre of all that we do is a firm commitment to promoting and taking action through simple acts of kindness, be it through fundraising, volunteering, or delivering life-changing services on the ground; and it is this simplicity of purpose which both grounds and energises our activities, making it a truly wonderful organisation to be a part of.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
