Seasonal Appeal

The Financial Times runs an annual seasonal appeal for a selected charity. Chosen by our staff, the winning charity and its work is covered by our journalists throughout the holiday season, both in print and online.

The FT’s 2017/18 seasonal appeal partner is Alzheimer's Research UK, a charity that conducts pioneering research to find better diagnosis, preventions and treatments for dementia. Since the appeal began in 2006, we have raised over £16.5m for our charity partners.

Applications for the 2018/19 appeal will open in February 2018. Entry information for 2018/19 is below.
