Under the scheme you make your donation from your pay or pension before tax, so that you get tax relief included in your donation at your top rate of tax. This means more money for the ICR at no extra cost to you.
For example, if you are a basic rate taxpayer wishing to give £10 a month, it will only cost you £8. There is no upper limit – you can donate as much as you like through the scheme.
Gift of shares
Gifts of listed shares are usually exempt from capital gains and income/corporation tax – for detailed guidance please consult the HM Revenue & Customs website
Give in memory
When someone close to us dies, making a gift in their memory is a very poignant way to remember them.
We will acknowledge all gifts and, if applicable, notify the next of kin of your kind generosity. For privacy, we do not disclose the gift amounts.
If you would like to make a gift or collect donations in memory of a loved one please send in your donations by printing and completing this form.
If you are organising a funeral collection, please ask your funeral director to forward all donations collected to The Institute of Cancer Research, FREEPOST LON 922, London SW7 3YY.
Gifts of land or property
Donating real property (land and buildings) to charity is eligible for full tax relief from income and capital gains tax.
