- Revolut commemorates World Cancer Day by driving support in-app for cancer charities around the world
- In 2020, Revolut customers globally contributed almost S$6.5 million in donations through the app
- In Singapore, Revolut is a proud sponsor of Relay for Life 2021 and will be fielding a team to complete a 100km race
Each year, 10 million people die from cancer. By 2030, experts project cancer deaths to rise to 13 million. With the appropriate strategies, we can save up to 3.7 million lives every year. In light of these sobering statistics, Revolut will be encouraging its customers to make a donation to cancer charities this World Cancer Day.
Using Revolut’s Donations product feature in the app, over 13 million customers worldwide will be able to round up their card payments and donate to a cancer charity in-app. Customers also have the option to make a one-off donation or set up recurring contributions, which can be terminated at any time in the app. Unlike traditional fundraising platforms, Revolut does not charge its customers or the charities a fee for the donations. 100 percent of the donations collected from Revolut customers through the app goes to the charities.
In Singapore, Revolut has stepped up to sponsor Singapore Cancer Society’s Relay for Life 2021 – a virtual fundraiser aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have battled the terrible disease. Revolutwill also be fielding a team in Relay For Life 2021 where collectively, Revolut Singapore’s employees will complete a 100km race by running, biking, or swimming.
James Shanahan, CEO of Revolut Singapore says:
“In Singapore, 39 people are diagnosed with cancer every day. Although extraordinary breakthroughs have been made in the area of cancer research, inequities exist and we must support organisations that are working tirelessly to ensure equal access to cancer prevention, treatment, and care. The Singapore Cancer Society’s work ensures that no one has to fight cancer alone and Revolut is proud to support them in their work.”
Albert Ching, CEO of Singapore Cancer Society, says:
“We at the Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) strive to provide the cancer community with a meaningful and hopeful life through many enriching programmes and services. The generosity from Revolut Singapore will help SCS drive the programmes and services that improve the lives of countless beneficiaries. SCS appreciates Revolut Singapore for being a part of our cancer journey, showing solidarity and unwavering support for the cause. We look forward to working more closely with dedicated partners such as Revolut.”
