How trusts & foundations support our work

The grant funding we receive helps enable the delivery of Big C’s Information & Support services. It helps enable our cancer awareness programmes aiding early detection through education. It helps ensure we can reach and provide for those in rural communities or those who are more disadvantaged or marginalised.  Grant support is also vital to helping ensure the long-term sustainability of the charity.

Working together in partnership

Big C has a robust structure in place to ensure we are adept at capturing meaningful data to demonstrate impact and validity of projects. 

We welcome opportunities to show charitable trusts just how their support is helping through regular updates and site visits. It’s a collaboration we want to share so trusts and foundations can see for themselves the full impact their grant is making.

“As part of our commitment to supporting charities where the Society’s colleagues and members live and work, we were delighted to help Big C. It’s clear to see the valuable work they do and we hope the donation will help make a difference to all those who come in contact with the service.”
