Thank you for finding and looking at our FUNDRAISING pages in this website.
Why fundraising is critical
Fundraising is the lifeblood of the EHE Rare Cancer Charity (UK). It provides the funds we need to deliver on all our objectives. But most of the funds we raise are used for the promotion and support of research that is critical to beating rare cancers like EHE. Our funds are obtained either through the fundraising efforts of our members, their supporters and the general public, or from simple donations. If you do not want to engage in fundraising programmes but do want to support us by providing a donation, please go to the DONATIONS page in this section. If you can help with ongoing fundraising, please read on.
Our programmes and initiatives
Our members are committed to supporting our fundraising programme in many different ways, by running their own personal fundraising events. It is through these events that the charity has been able to raise over £365,000 by the end of 2016. The EHE sister charities have also launched their own combined worldwide fundraising initiatives, such as our Road to 500 and 100 Club programmes, and annual worldwide EHE Fund-Raising Month. In addition to this, the EHE charities are considering running a crowd-funding campaign in mid-2017 with the objective of raising funding for a specific research programme.
Details of these programmes can be seen on the FUNDRAISING PROGRAMMES page in this section. A list of fundraising ideas and supporting information is also available on the IDEAS AND EVENTS page in this section. Examples of fundraising events and the stories behind them can be seen by clicking on the NEWS section in this website or viewing past copies of The Pledge, our quarterly newsletter, which can be found in the RESOURCES section of this website.
We have described within this section a series of fundraising programmes and ideas, but we recognise that for many people a small one-off donation may be all they can afford. We would be extremely grateful for any donation that you can make, regardless of size, as it will be the collection of many donations of all different sizes that will ultimately help us raise the funds we need. If you want to make a donation please use the DONATION link at the bottom of this page.
But you don’t have to have EHE, or even know somebody with EHE, to join us and raise funds. It may be that you know somebody who has a rare cancer, or perhaps you simply want to help improve understanding of cancers in general. Whatever your reason, your assistance and the funds you raise will be hugely appreciated. We will be genuinely grateful for your help.
