How we are funded?
The British Skin Foundation is not statutory funded and relies completely on donations to be able to do its work.
The very backbone of our support, we wouldn't be able to do what we can without our regular givers, who choose to give monthly, annually or whenever they can.
Whether's it's a sponsored walk, climbing up Kilimanjaro, running the London Marathon or simply a local quiz night, events, both those organised by us and BSF supporters play an essential fundraising role in the organisation and are a vital way in which supporters can engage with the charity.
Grants from trusts and major donors
Trusts and major donors play a key role in supporting our work. To date, trusts have donated close to £700,000 to the BSF in support of specific areas of research, a particular disease or to a local research project. Major donors often give in higher regular amounts or lump sums.
This is a vital source of income, as people choose to support our charity by leaving a gift in their will. To date the BSF has received over £260,000 in legacy support.
Support from our corporate organisations is essential to our work, not only through their donations, but it offers the chance to engage with their staff on events supporting the BSF.
