With more people living with cancer than ever before, the need for our work is constantly growing. Thanks to our loyal and committed supporters, nearly 98% of our income came from voluntary giving and fundraising in 2011, so we take care to manage our money wisely.
In 2011 most of our money came from:
Legacies| - £51.3 million - the gifts that people leave us in their wills account for more than a third of our total fundraised income.
Direct marketing| - £26 million - this includes funds raised via direct debit and cash donations in response to a direct request to support our vital work.
Other voluntary income - £64 million - this includes income from fundraising events| and support from our corporate partners|.
See the chart below for a breakdown of our income sources.
Charitable spend - £105.9 million
Governance - £0.9 million
Fundraising - £45.6 million
Other - £0.4 million
Thanks to the hard work of our supporters we increased what we spent on cancer services to a record £105.9 million in 2011. That’s £10 million more than in 2010. Our charitable spend breaks down as follows:
