Fundraise for us

Thank you for choosing to support Melanoma Focus. By doing so, youre helping to shape a better future for melanoma patients. Our work wouldnt be possible without support from amazing fundraisers like you.

By supporting us you are helping us to commission and fund innovative research into the treatment and causes of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, while providing support and information for patients, carers and healthcare professionals.

Getting started

You may want to take part in a Melanoma Focus organised event or prefer to organise your own fundraiser or event. We also have charity places available in a range of public events through the year.

Check out our challenge events web page latest events and register to take part. We will then be on hand to support you and make sure you have the fundraising materials you need.

If you choose to organise your own fundraising activity or have booked your own place on an event please register your fundraising with us, so we can support you along the way and send you a fundraising pack.

However you want to get involved, we are here to help. To discuss or find out more about fundraising please get in touch: fundraising@melanomafocus.org

Once you’ve decided on your fundraising challenge and registered it with us, you need to start spreading the word about your challenge and asking for sponsorship.

Online sponsorship

To make it easy for people to sponsor you, we recommend setting up an online fundraising page. This way you can reach your friends and family as quickly and simply as possible. It allows your sponsors to find out why youre fundraising, make a secure donation that comes directly to us and keep up to date with your progress. It also takes care of Gift Aid for you, which means eligible donations will be boosted by 25%. That’s another £1 for every £4 you raise and so makes a big difference to your fundraising total.

Melanoma Focus uses JustGiving  – just go to the page and click on ‘Fundraise for us’ to get started.
