Ways to donate

Donate online

You can make a single or a regular gift using the University’s secure online giving pages.

  • Single online gift
  • Regular online gift* (*we have temporarily disabled this link due to technical difficulties, we hope to restore this as soon as possible, if you would like to speak to us please contact Donna Lumsden)

The links will take you to the University’s secure online giving pages dedicated to CRM. Your unrestricted donation allows us to direct funds to areas of greatest need, both now and in the future.

However, perhaps you would like indicate that your donation should be used to fund research on a specific disease or a particular researcher, research area, in which case please get in touch with Donna Lumsden and we will ensure your vital donation is directed appropriately.

Donate by post

You can support CRM by sending your gift by post. The downloadable donation form on the left hand side of this webpage will enable you to make a regular donation by Direct Debit or a single donation by cheque, Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) voucher, credit or debit card.

Community fundraising

As part of the University of Edinburgh, CRM is a registered charity (number SC004307). You can choose to support us online by using the University’s Just Giving website. All donations - large and small - are welcome. Your fundraising initiatives will help raise awareness of our research efforts amongst the wider community - an equally important goal.

Simply set up your fundraising page and remember to tell your friends and family with text which explains you are supporting CRM.

  • Set up a University of Edinburgh fundraising page specifically for CRM on Just Giving

If you would like more information, suggestions or are keen to get started then Kerry Mackay, the University’s Individual Giving Officer, would be delighted to hear from you.

Leaving a legacy

Leaving a legacy gift is one way you can act today to support CRM and the work our researchers do. We are grateful that you are considering a gift in your will.

As a registered charity (number SC004307), a legacy to CRM in most instances is tax free and will reduce any inheritance tax burden on your estate. You can also leave a pecuniary or residuary legacy in your will or a gift of land, buildings, personal property (such as antiques or jewellery), shares or securities tax free.

The University website has outlined ways in which you might make such a gift and we can put you in contact with their Legacy Team who will be delighted to assist you and make sure your specific wishes are met.
