Face to Face Fundraising
You are viewing: Why face to face fundraising?
Teenage Cancer Trust uses Face to Face fundraising as a cost-effective and successful way of engaging with a wider audience and finding new supporters whose regular donations make our work for young people facing cancer possible.
New supporters help to fund our specialist nurses, youth support coordinators and our hospital wards, which are designed specifically for young people facing cancer. This method of fundraising also gives members of the public the opportunity to gain a real understanding about Teenage Cancer Trust’s work by asking questions.
Teenage Cancer Trust relies solely on voluntary income from its supporters. Regular donations allow us to keep administrative costs down and plan for the future with confidence.
