Donate money, goods or services

If you want to make a direct corporate donation to Marie Curie, there are a number of ways you can do so. We gratefully receive all donations and your money will make a significant difference to people and their families who are living with terminal illness.

Company shares

Your company may have a gift of shares which could be donated to Marie Curie.

Supporting key projects

You can specify how we use your company's donation. If there's an area of our work that particularly appeals to you, our Marie Curie Helper service or our Delivering Choice programme for example, we can ensure your funds go towards it.

Supporting Marie Curie in your area

If your company has ties to a particular part of the UK, your donation can go towards supporting our work in that area, so that your money stays in your local community.

£20

£180

pays for Marie Curie Nurses to look after someone living with a terminal illness for a full nine-hour shift, in the comfort of their own home.

£5,500

will cover the cost of Marie Curie's entire nursing service across the UK for one hour.

£19,000

Donated goods and services

We hugely value goods and services. They can range from stock for our shops, prizes for raffles or auctions or even pro bono support.

HomeServe Patient Policy case study

The HomeServe Patient Policy is a fantastic example of gifts in kind in action. One of our nurses raised concerns that people with a terminal illness might not be able to be treated at home if they had a household problem. HomeServe responded by developing a Patient Policy to provide the people we help with free cover for 12 months and peace of mind.


As a business, what we do best is fix things. Our engineers will go to a patient’s home to do anything from fixing a boiler to unblocking a toilet. Marie Curie Nurses provide care to patients at home and we can help to make that home both safe and comfortable to live in.
