Benevolent Fund

The fund has been established to aid persons who are or have been members or employees of the Association whether they are subscribers to the Fund or not and the dependents of past or present members or employees of the Association who have deceased or are experiencing difficulties.

Actively working members are encouraged to contribute to this fund with their annual subscriptions to the Association for Laboratory Medicine to assist their less fortunate colleagues and the dependents of deceased or those experiencing difficulties whether past or present members or employees of the Association. This can be done through the Charities Aid Foundation - – when income tax can be recovered for the charity without any extra cost to donors.

Applications and inquiries should in the first instance be made to the Director of Finance via our Contact Us link below.

Donating to the fund

The Benevolent Fund of the ACB acts as a life line to some past and current members who in later life find health and other circumstances make their life intolerable. A contribution of just £10 per member would augment the fund and allow us to make a major difference to their way of life. If you would like to increase the value of your donation, for UK tax payers, at no extra cost to yourself you can do this through CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) at you will then need to enter in the Keyword(s) phrase or Charity Number box “*Biochemists*” or the Charity Number “254213” and then select search. You will then be able to select donate, in this way the fund will receive the tax you have already paid on your donation from the Inland Revenue. We thank you for your kindness in considering this request
