Philanthropy and major gifts

Generous support through philanthropy, major gifts, trusts and foundations enables us to provide life-changing support for teenagers and young people with cancer.

Join our community of philanthropists

Cancer can throw young people’s lives into chaos. Even for those who recover, it can have a lasting impact on their future. You can make sure our specialised nurses, support teams, and hospital units are there for them, throughout their cancer treatment and beyond.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to providing this specialised nursing care and support. We rely on the support of our philanthropic partners to fund the transformational services we provide. Our vision is a world where cancer doesn’t stop young people from living their lives and we welcome individuals, trusts and foundations who share this charitable interest.

Your supporter journey with Teenage Cancer Trust

At Teenage Cancer trust, we have a dedicated Philanthropy team which develops long-lasting, bespoke relationships with the individuals who generously support us.

Our team works closely with you to understand your motivations for making a philanthropic donation and identify the area of our work you would like to give to whether that’s supporting a specific high-impact project, or allowing us to direct your donation to where it is most needed.

We partner with you, developing a tailored journey through which you can be confident your gift will make a meaningful impact. And we are committed to keeping you updated on the progress of the projects and initiatives your gift is supporting. This could be through regular reports, attending exclusive events, or site visits so you can see the difference your gift is making first hand.

What do we mean by a philanthropic gift?

At Teenage Cancer Trust we are extremely grateful for each and every donation we receive. We define donations of over £5,000 as a philanthropic gift.
