How we are funded
Every year vital funds are raised to support cancer patients and their families through donations and appeals, our shops, fantastic supporters, legacy gifts and from trusts and grants. We couldn't achieve what we do without this support.
How we raised our money in 2015/2016
Every year thousands of people donate to us to help keep our services running and fund our vital cancer research. Some people donate as a thank you for services received, some donate in memory of a loved one and others simply donate to support people affected by cancer in their local community. Without this generosity, we couldn't be there for the thousands of people affected by cancer who need us. Make a difference and donate today.
We have 65 shops across Wales and the South West of England selling high quality donated clothes, books and bric-a-brac. Each one of our shops has a fantastic team of volunteers and forms a large part of the fundraising initiative of Tenovus Cancer Care. Find out more about our shops.
Gifts left in Wills make up a significant proportion of the money we receive, and are essential to our work. They help us plan for the future and fund vital cancer research. We can all leave Tenovus Cancer Care a gift in our Will and care for our family, whatever our circumstances.
Find out more about leaving Tenovus Cancer Care a gift in your Will and our free Wills service.

Trusts & grants
Grants from trusts and foundations are an important funding source for the charity that can provide significant funding towards the overall cost of specific projects or services.
Over the years, many trusts and foundations have supported us by annually awarding us a grant towards our cancer support services or research projects. We're so grateful to these charities for their continued support over many years.
Every year, thanks to the hard work, commitment and generosity of our community supporters including our Friends of Tenovus Cancer Care groups, we're able to help support more cancer patients and their families. Each and every coffee morning, cycle ride, trek, raffle ticket and donation has helped us achieve that. Find out more about fundraising here.
Each year our corporate partners provide outstanding support. From Charity of the Year fundraising through to sponsorship of our services and events, their significant contributions mean we can continue to provide our vital services.
