At the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, we are extremely grateful for every single donation we receive and we understand that a major gift is something truly special; it is an investment in a future where lives will no longer be limited by cystic fibrosis.
As such, you will want to understand exactly how your gift will make a difference to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis.
However you choose to give, whether a one-off donation as an individual, through a trust or foundation, gifts of shares or regular donations through our Sixty Five Roses Club, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust’s Philanthropy Team are here for every stage of your philanthropic journey. From providing detailed information on the Trust’s current work and future vision to help you make an informed decision, to regular progress reports of the milestones your donation has helped to achieve in beating cystic fibrosis and the option of being mentioned in our annual Impact Report, we are here to listen to you and we’re dedicated to making you as involved as you wish to be with the Trust’s activities.
A real life example of how a major gift can make a major difference:
One of our generous donors pledged £100,000 over five years to go towards the Gene Therapy Consortium’s research in to gene therapy for cystic fibrosis. Results announced in 2015, though moderate in their effect, statistically show significant improvement in lung function and proof of concept. This huge milestone would not have been possible without the generosity of this donor, and the many other large donations and community fundraising which contributed to the Trust’s major Gene Therapy Appeal in 2011. The Consortium continues its vital research into this pioneering science with the Trust’s support.
