Data provided by JustGiving reveals that health charities are the most popular causes to donate to, with 68% of JustGiving donations going to health charities.

Over the last four years there has been on average a 10% increase in donations to health and poverty-related charities.

Stephen Cotterill, editor of Civil Society Media’ s Fundraising Magazine commented: “Historically health and medical research charities have been the best funded by individual donors.

There are a number of reasons why health charities are particularly successful. Firstly, the issues related to health touch everyone, so everyone knows someone who’s been impacted by cancer or heart disease. They have also been incredibly successful in fundraising through mass participation events.”
