Donating to the fund

Moon and planet

Are you interested in investing in cutting-edge cancer research?

We're looking to grow this to a £30m fund and are seeking investment to match Cancer Research UK's commitment of £15m, to help us to continue to invest in the most innovative cancer science.

I'd like to donate

We are keen to engage with philanthropic donors who are able to donate a minimum of £500k over a 5 year period. You will be given regular reports, updates and insights into the developing portfolio to ensure that you remain closely engaged.
