Making a large donation

A grandad playing with his grandchildSignificant donations from individuals like you are crucial to our work as they enable us to invest in much-needed research to find a cure for arthritis as well as help support people living with arthritis today.

Donations of £5,000 or more

We work with philanthropists across the country who donate £5,000 or more. If you can make a major gift to Arthritis Research UK, we’d love to hear from you.

We value the bespoke nature of our relationship with each of our donors and are happy to discuss your areas of interest. We'll work with you to make sure that you know where exactly your money goes and the impact it has on making our groundbreaking research happen.

The major gifts team would also be happy to help you arrange gifts of shares to Arthritis Research UK.

For further information and to make a major gift, please contact Katja Janus on or 020 7307 2259.

Donations of under £5,000

If a gift of under £5,000 is more appropriate, you can still help. Why not become a member of the Joint Initiative, our new giving club for supporters committed to making a regular donation of at least £1,000 a year?

  • receive regular updates on our work and the impact of your support
  • receive invites to exclusive events, lab tours and receptions
  • get the opportunity to meet some of our leading scientists and senior charity staff
