Was there ever a charity listed in any of the Harry Potter books? I'm doing a charitable event as part of the movie opening and was looking to name our booth accordingly. But all Google searches come up with is the amazing "real world" charitable work.

I don't have time to re-read all the books


S.P.E.W. is a charity set up by Hermione in Book 4. Stands for the "Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare". It's interest is supporting House Elves. Lysander Scamander 19:29, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

From a sign by the Fountain of Magical Brethren in the Ministry of Magic atrium (HP&OotP, ch.7, p.127):
"All proceeds from the Fountain of Magical Brethren will be given to St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries."
