Why donate?

The Brain Tumour Charity is at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain tumours. By donating to The Brain Tumour Charity you can help make a real difference to the lives of those affected by a brain tumour.

Why we need your support

Over 55,000 people are currently living with a brain tumour in the UK yet less than 2% of cancer research funding is spent on brain tumours. We are committed to changing this.

We're the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours in the UK. To date, we've invested £18.3 million into pioneering research, have reduced average childhood diagnosis times from 14.4 to 6.7 weeks through our HeadSmart campaign and supported over 20,000 people through our Support & Information Service. Our strategy sets ambitious goals, to double survival and halve the harm caused by brain tumours on quality of life. We know these are the only way to make a real and lasting difference for people with a brain tumour. Read more about the impact your money can make.

We rely 100% on voluntary donations and 80p of every £1 raised is spent on research, awareness and support to help achieve our goals. 19p is spent on raising funds for future years and 1p is spent on governance to ensure The Charity is run effectively and efficiently. This means every penny can make a difference.

However you choose to make a donation, thank you for your support. Find out how to send us the money you have raised.
