How much of my donation goes to Cancer Research UK? For every £1 donated, 80p is used to beat cancer (the remaining 20p goes towards raising funds for the future). The majority that we spend each year goes towards our ground-breaking research. And thanks to research, cancer survival is improving and has doubled over the past 40 years in the UK.
What do Cancer Research UK do with the money? We fund cancer research into all types of cancer. The amount we spend varies year to year as we don’t allocate all our resources ahead of time. In 2020/2021, we committed £388m to cancer research that will fund new projects that will run for many years.
How much does Cancer Research UK make a year? Our total income for 2017/18 was £634 million. This was raised through: Donations (£192 million) – Donations included regular gifts, major donations and money raised by local fundraising groups and corporate partners. Legacies (£182 million) – Over 6,000 people left a gift to Cancer Research UK in their will.
