How does the BHF spend donations?
Thanks to the amazing efforts of our supporters, in 2017-18 we raised more than £170 million.
£128 million was spent on life saving research and support for heart patients. £42 million was spent on the costs associated with generating income.
In other words, for every £1 raised, around 75p, went straight to funding research on heart and circulatory diseases, and the risk factors that cause them.
How you can help
There is still so much work we need to do. Seven million people in the UK live with heart and circulatory diseases, and these diseases are responsible for more than quarter of all deaths.
Thank you for all your continued support and donations, but there is still more work to do. Between now and 2020 we will fund more than half a billion pounds of cardiovascular research to save lives. Help us beat heartbreak forever by donating today.
