On 4 February, we’ll join a host of organisations to celebrate World Cancer Day – a day that unites people, communities and entire countries to raise awareness and take action. We take a look at how our partner Revolut is making donating to Cancer Research UK easier than ever and how some of our other corporate partners are embracing the campaign.
Since Revolut launched in 2015, the digital banking service that provides mobile app-based current accounts to more than 15 million people worldwide has partnered with leading charities to help reinvent the way people donate to good causes. To support our World Cancer Day fundraising, Revolut, are allowing Revolut customers to quickly and conveniently make donations towards Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research.
Revolut Donations allows users to make a one-off donation or set up a weekly or monthly recurring payment to their chosen cause. They can also opt to round up card payments to the nearest pound and donate the difference – meaning that their £3.50 morning coffee is rounded up to £4 and 50p is donated to their chosen charity. With no minimum donation and the ability to turn the feature on and off at any time, supporting a cause has never been easier and Revolut makes sure that 100% of donations go directly to the chosen charity.
“We’ve built Revolut Donations to enable charities to raise vital funds in a quick and seamless manner,” explains Marsel Nikaj, Product Owner for Revolut Donations. “We are proud to partner with Cancer Research UK to help raise funds to fight the global cancer epidemic. Through this partnership, we hope to help make faster progress toward beating cancer.”
“I’m delighted to see more partners than ever supporting the global fight against cancer,” says Morag Stocks, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Cancer Research UK. “Our partnership with Revolut shows how charitable giving is becoming more innovative and how, with the support of our corporate partners, we’ll be able to raise more money for life-saving research.”
