Other ways to give
From Payroll Giving and online shopping, to donating shares and loyalty points. Find out about some other ways you can give to Macmillan.
There are lots of different ways you can support Macmillan. You can of course make a donation or start fundraising, but there are also other ways you can help people living with cancer, often at no cost to yourself. From shopping online with AmazonSmile, to donating loyalty points, find out more about the different options available and choose one which works for you.
Macmillan's Online Shop is still taking orders and delivering goods across the UK. From clothing and jewellery, to greetings cards and stationery, by shopping with us, you’re helping us to continue providing essential services and support to people affected by cancer.
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with exactly the same products, prices and shopping features as Amazon.co.uk. Whilst using AmazonSmile your shopping experience remains completely the same, the only difference is Amazon will donate to your chosen charity every time you shop.
How does AmazonSmile donate?
If you have selected Macmillan as your chosen charity, every time you make a purchase on AmazonSmile we'll receive a donation of 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible products.
Why use AmazonSmile
Shopping on AmazonSmile provides you with the same great experience as Amazon.co.uk but with the added bonus of knowing Macmillan will receive an extra donation from your purchases at no additional cost to you or the charity.
To date, Macmillan has received over £50,000 through AmazonSmile. Please help us reach more people affected by cancer by switching over to AmazonSmile and selecting Macmillan Cancer Support as your chosen charity.

Donating your shares to Macmillan is not only a great way to help people living with cancer, but it could also be a shrewd financial decision. It's one of the most tax-effective ways you can give, as you won't have to pay any capital gains tax on the shares you donate and you can claim income tax relief too.
