Other Ways to Donate

There are many other ways to give, whilst going about your everyday lives, including through your payroll, shopping, recycling and more.

Payroll Giving

This is a simple way for you to regularly donate money from your gross salary, so that you end up giving more for less. Your donation is deducted from your wages before the tax is taken and it's the remaining amount that is taxed.

For example, donating £5 will actually cost you £4 if you pay tax at 20%. This same £5 will cost you £3 if you are a higher tax rate payer of 40%, or £2.50 if you are in the highest tax bracket of 50%. The same principle works for whatever amount you choose to give. Simply speak to your workplace regarding ‘payroll giving', if you're interested.


Leave a Legacy

Most of us wish to be remembered for achieving something special in life, so what could be more special than helping us to find a cure for brain tumours.

Leaving a gift in your will can be one of the most effective ways to support us and those affected by brain tumours. All gifts - no matter what size - are greatly appreciated and Brain Tumour Research will not have to pay Inheritance Tax on your donation. We are of course aware that family is a priority, but please consider helping us to find a cure, after you have looked after your family and friends. If you're interested in helping in this way, seek advice from an independent solicitor regarding your will and the best way for you to include us in it.

Your gift will make a difference.


Give in Celebration

If you are planning on celebrating a special occasion this year, then why not think about asking your friends and family to donate money to Taylan’s Project rather than give you presents?

Whether you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, wedding, christening or even a retirement party, making a donation instead of receiving gifts is a simple way to celebrate whilst raising vital funds for research into brain tumours.

If you would like to celebrate your special occasion in this way, we would love to hear from you and look forward to helping make your celebration a success.


Shop Online

If you are an online shopper, then you can make your purchases count for so much more by accessing your favourite retailers through easy fundraising.

What's more, many of the big name high street retailers even offer extra discounts when buying online, so you can save money whilst making an invaluable contribution to Taylan's Project.

There are over 2,000 of the UK's most popular retailers and by simply using the links on the site and selecting Taylan's Project as your chosen cause, up to 15% from every purchase you make will be donated to us. Helping to fund the fight couldn't be easier, especially if you're planning to do most of your Christmas shopping online! 


Recycle for us

If you'd like to set up a collection point in your office, school, club or shop, we can provide collection boxes, promotional materials and information to help you at no cost to yourself or your business. Every recycling bag or collection box is customised with the Brain Tumour Research logo, so it's also a great way of publicising the cause.

Recycle mobile phones
The average mobile phone user will replace their handset once every 18 months and it is estimated that less than 20% of all unused mobile phones in the UK are currently recycled.

If you have an old handset you wish to donate, please contact us to request your FREEPOST envelope.

Recycle Ink cartridges
All ink cartridges are accepted to be recylced, re-used or resold.
To request FREEPOST envelopes or collection boxes for ink cartridge recycling please 
contact us.


Give a car!

If you have an old car that you don't want, just contact www.giveacar.co.uk Every car has a value and whether it's roadworthy or only good for scrap.

They will take your details, arrange the collection, send a tow truck and either scrap the car or sell it at auction before making a donation to Brain Tumour Research! They do all the work, so it's a free and simple service to use.
