Fundraise Your Way

What will you do?

What will you do to support the cause you care about most?

1. Donate through JustGiving


Visit and click on the link to the area you want to support. If you can't see the specific area of research you want to help, donate to the main campaign page, leaving a message letting us know where to direct your donation. Unsure what to do? Give Kerry a call on 0777 299 7429 and she'll be delighted to help.

2. Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is a simple, tax-efficient way of donating to the cause you care about most. In fact, because you receive tax relief immediately on your donation, the cost to you is less, but we receive the same amount you originally decided to give. Want to learn more?

3. Easy Fundraising

You can raise money for your favourite University of Edinburgh cause without leaving the house. Simply do your online shopping through easy fundraising. There’s no extra cost for you, the retailers themselves donate the money to your chosen cause. Visit for more information.

4. Secret Santa

Secret Santa

According to a recent poll, almost half of office workers dislike Secret Santa. Some people find it stressful to buy a gift for someone they don't know very well. Some people view it as wasteful. Some people love it!

If you aren't a big fan of Secret Santa, why not donate the amount of money you would usually spend on a Secret Santa gift to the cause you care about most? It's easy through our JustGiving page and you can leave a message from Santa there too.

If you are a fan of Secret Santa, why not donate this year in lieu of a traditional Secret Santa gift - you're still taking part, but instead of supporting a big retail business, you're supporting a charitable organisation.

5. Fundraise Your Way

Fundraise Your Way

Have you been meaning to fundraise all year, but haven't gotten around to it? Why not take on a fundraising challenge or activity before the end of the year? You can sign up to our dancing challenge (very apt for December), take part in our memory challenge, or whatever you think your friends and family will sponsor you for doing. The choice is yours.
