I live outside the UK how can I donate to you?
Due to strict security on our website if your card was issued outside the UK unfortunately you will be unable to donate online to us. But there are a number of alternative options:
- Call us on +44 207840 4900, and we can take a credit or debit card payment over the phone. Our lines are open 9am-5pm GMT Monday to Friday
- Call us on +44 207840 4900 or email us at [email protected] and we can provide you with our bank details to make a bank transfer directly to our account
- Donate directly to Macmillan via www.Justgiving.com. They accept a range of currencies, and money reaches us securely.
If you are unable to use any of these please methods send a cheque in pounds sterling or your local currency to our head office:
Macmillan Cancer Support
89 Albert Embankment
Please note, bank charges may be deducted from your donation when using this method, so the other options are most cost effective for us.
Can you claim Gift Aid on my donations?
Yes, if you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim Gift Aid on donations made online or offline, no matter how large or small. You can find out more about the Gift Aid scheme, and let us know that you’re eligible for Gift Aid here.
I d like to fundraise online, how can I do this?
Justgiving.com and virginmoneygiving.com are the two most popular sites supporters use to raise money for us. They both have some fantastic features, like the opportunity for you to set up your own fundraising page where you can upload photos and share messages about your event. Supporters who use these sites often raise more money than people just doing their fundraising offline.
What will you do with my details?
We’d like to keep you up to date with our work, so may contact you from time to time by phone, email, text or post to let you know how we can support you and how you can get involved with our team. Your details will be kept securely and only shared with the suppliers or partners who work on our behalf or with us to deliver and improve services for people affected by cancer.
Will I receive an acknowledgement of my gift?
When you donate online you will receive an email confirmation of your gift almost immediately. If you send us a gift through the post or by paying directly into our bank we will also send confirmation by post, unless you advise us that you don’t need one.
Can I leave you a gift in my will?
Absolutely. We’re delighted to receive donations left to us as legacies, and any gift no matter how large or small makes a difference. Find out more.
Can you use my donation for a specific aspect of your work?
Nearly 98% of our income is from voluntary donations, and this goes to provide our full range of services, from specialist cancer nurses to information booklets and support groups. We plan these services very carefully to meet the needs of people affected by cancer in a local community or nationwide. We review our services regularly to make sure they are providing the best value for money and maximum impact.
For this reason we prefer to use donations to fund whichever of our services are most in need, but if you would like us to use your gift towards a specific aspect of our work we will comply wherever possible. Please contact us on 0300 1000 200 to discuss your wishes. You can donate directly to some of our current projects here .
How will you use my donations?
We rely on donations for 98% of our income, and your money will help us to provide a variety of services that help make sure no one has to go through cancer alone. Find out more about what we do. or see a detailed breakdown of how we’ve spent our income in our annual reports.
