Donate to help us beat cancer
Donate monthly and together we will beat cancer
Future-proof our research
A reliable income means we can plan ahead and commit to long-term research projects supporting more than 4,000 researchers, doctors and nurses.
Help us save more lives
Regular donations allow us to fund new treatments that can help people live longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer.
Give in a way that suits you
Small amounts add up over time so you can have a big impact with a monthly donation. It's simple to set up and you can change or cancel at any time.
Donate by cancer type or research area
Where your money goes
Giving just £5 could help towards the cost of kitting out one of our research labs with the essential chemicals our scientists need - the bread and butter of day-to-day experiments.
Giving £15 could help our scientists carry out their ground-breaking research in the lab. You could cover the cost of a polyacrylamide gel, which separates out different sized bits of DNA and reveals vital clues about how to beat cancer.
£30 can help improve treatments for patients with prostate cancer. It takes just 10 people donating £30 each to cover the cost of a trial for a day. Finding out, for example, if higher doses of radiotherapy can be used, while minimising side effects caused by damage to surrounding tissues.
8 people giving £50 each could buy a research tool at the forefront of revolutionary science and life-saving discoveries. £400 buys an exome sequencing experiment, helping to find out information about our DNA , so our scientists can find cancer-causing mutations.
5 people giving £100, could help thousands of people through a very difficult time by giving them someone to talk to. £500 covers the cost of running our Cancer Chat forum for one day.
