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 raise funds for CCLG. How do I get involved?

We’re delighted you want to fundraise for us. Your amazing efforts will help us to beat childhood cancer.

There are so many ways you can get involved - have a look at our 'support us' section for some great events and fundraising ideas. We'll offer you plenty of advice and support with your fundraising, including our brilliant fundraising materials.

If you're not sure how you would like to raise funds, please contact us.

I'd like to make a donation towards a specific type of children's cancer. What should I do?

We'd be happy to 'ringfence' your donation to support our work into a specific type of childhood cancer. Just let us know when you make the donation the type of cancer you would like us to ringfence your donation to, and we'll do the rest.

We can also ringfence your donation to a specific area of our work, for example our publications for parents and patients, or our research activity. Again, just let us know when you make the donation.

If you are planning to donate or fundraise on an ongoing basis, why not consider one of our Special Named Funds? All donations made to a fund are ringfenced to a specific type of cancer or area of our work, whether the donations are from yourself, or other fundraisers and supporters.

Can I make a donation by text message?

Yes! Text CCLG to 70300 to donate £3. You can find out more about donating by text here.

How do I set up an online fundraising page?

There are lots of advantages to setting up an online fundraising page. It’s easy to set up and manage, and your supporters can donate from anywhere, at any time, and leave you messages of support. Even better, all donations are sent directly to us, so you don’t need to spend time collecting money. You can add a personal story, photos and updates to encourage people to give, and you can link directly to your Facebook page or Twitter account and reach even more people. Finally, if donations are eligible for Gift Aid, this will automatically be reclaimed for us. We use Virgin Money Giving as our online fundraising provider, as the fees they charge to charities are lower than similar sites.
