Other ways to donate

Other ways to donate

As well as making a one-off or monthly donation, there are many other ways you can offer your financial support.

Giving platforms

Worldwide Cancer Research is listed on a number of ‘giving platforms’ which means you can donate automatically while you buy or sell goods online. So you can support bold research while you shop!

eBay Giving – if you’re planning to sell something on eBay, you can now give money raised to Worldwide Cancer Research. All you have to do is list your item and decide how much to donate, and choose Worldwide Cancer Research to help fund life-saving research which charity to donate to!

Amazon Smile - AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. But when you shop on AmazonSmile, a percentage of the purchase price of eligible products is donated to Worldwide Cancer Research.

The Giving Machine – a free to use online shopping site which allows you to buy goods from a huge range of retailers (over 1500!) like M&S, John Lewis and Boots, and with every purchase, a percentage is donated to us (at no extra cost to you) to a charity of your choice.

Give As You Live – another free to use online shopping site with other 4000 retailers including Wickes, Argos and Next. Again, every purchase will help us with pioneering cancer research.

Help support the groundbreaking discoveries of tomorrow, today.
