Sending us your Donations

Further to receiving your funds we will bank it and issue you with an acknowledgement of receipt by email. The fundraising you have sent will be recorded against your name and event on our database.

Collecting sponsorship and donations

Collecting pledges and donations post event can be time consuming, so to make this easier, please read our tips on collecting in your hard earned sponsorship.

Paying in cash and cheques

  • If you are fundraising offline, encourage your donors to give using cheques or Charity Aid Foundation (CAF) vouchers payable to the Melanoma Fund. Please send these direct to us along with a completed donation form.

  • You should deposit these in your bank and forward a personal cheque to the Melanoma Fund with a completed copy of the donation form from your fundraising pack.

  • We do not recommend sending cash in the post. If you receive sterling, you should deposit in in your bank and send us a personal cheque with a completed copy of our donation form. Alternatively you can take the cash to a post office and get a postal order payable to the Melanoma Fund.

Using Debit/Credit cards

  • If a sponsor prefers to use a debit or credit card, direct them to your designated on-line fundraising page.

Receipts and acknowledgements

  • If companies or individuals request individual receipts for the amounts they have given you, contact us and we will provide this.

  • We will bank all fundraising and then post or email a receipt to you. This process can take a week to ten days. It is important that you enclose a completed donation form with all fundraising sent to the Society so that we can record the amount against your name and event on our database.

Please note:

You should not deposit money directly into our bank account.
