100% -- every penny -- of our profits go to good causes on Bute.

None of our staff receive salaries or other remuneration or benefit in any way from For Bute.

Your donations go further

 

When you donate to For Bute or shop at For Bute, you know that the benefit stays on the Isle of Bute. Because we keep our costs to a minimum, depend on volunteers and pay no salaries, and have no assets such as a vehicle, we are able to maximise the value of donations, and because we are a local charity, all profits stay here, on Bute.
