The Iolanthe Midwifery Trust is a national charity whose aim is to enhance the wellbeing of mothers, their babies and families by assisting the education and professional development of midwives in the UK. The name ‘Iolanthe’ comes from the origin of the finances used to set up the Trust in 1983 from the sale of Iolanthe House in South Kensington, London, previously the home of W.S. Gilbert of ‘Gilbert and Sullivan’ fame. The Trust gives a range of grants and awards, with the best known being annual awards for qualified midwives to enhance their professional development through such activities as further education, travel and attendance at conferences; and support for student midwives to experience additional educational opportunities or undertake elective placements. In addition there are larger awards given from time to time to promote research and reward best practice within the field of midwifery and the maternity services. Since 1983, the Trust has supported hundreds of midwives and students, all of whom have expressed their appreciation at being selected by a unique charity run by midwives for midwives. The distinction of gaining an award has often given midwives a boost to morale and confidence that has helped them take their career forward and make a real difference to care for mothers and babies.

Is there any cost to our cause or supporters?
No, it's completely free for your cause and supporters. The only cost is to the retailer.
Why do the retailers make a donation?
When you visit a retailer or service through goraise.co.uk they offer a donation as a thank you for your custom. Our partner retailers like to help, but it's also a way of attracting customers, so they essentially put it down as a marketing cost.
Sounds too good to be true – is there a catch?
There’s no catch, and to confirm, it won't cost you a penny!! In fact, there’s £millions worth of retailer commission available every year to fund good causes across the UK. Amazingly, many causes are still unaware of this easy, free way to generate funds through everyday online shopping.
How much of the donation does GoRaise take?
We don’t take a penny of the amount displayed. For all retailers we show a donation rate (% or £), which represents the full amount you are raising for your cause. For clarity, GoRaise is a commercial organisation, and we receive an additional payment from the retailer above and beyond that shown on the site.
Can any cause use GoRaise to fundraise?
Yes – any good cause (an organisation with unselfish goals) can use GoRaise to generate funds, from small community groups to national charities. Your favourite cause may already be registered. If it isn’t, it can be added for free. GoRaise helps charities, sports clubs, PTAs, community groups, churches, youth groups (Girl Guides, Scouts etc) and lots of other great causes.
How do we get paid?
You can choose to receive your money into a bank account or direct donation platform. We pay our causes every quarter and challengers monthly. We'll let you know once the payment has been sent. Please note: causes have to have at least £15 (and Challengers £2) in their account before we make payment
