We welcome enquiries from charitable trusts and foundations and we are pleased to arrange for trustees to visit our Ovarian Cancer Research Centre to meet the scientists and see their ground-breaking work first-hand. 

Please email to find out more.

We would like to thank all our trust and foundation supporters for their generous grants, and especially The Freemasons’ Grand Charity and The Maurice Wohl Charitable Foundation who have each pledged £1million over five years to support our work.

The Freemasons’ Grand Charity

Funding salaries for research and awareness work.

“When the decision was taken to donate one million pounds toward research into a women’s health issue it was unanimously agreed that we should support Ovarian Cancer Action. The fact that ovarian cancer kills 12 women every day served to highlight the strong need for further research into this area. The progress OCA has achieved over recent years at the Action Research Centre has been very reassuring and we are delighted to be able to contribute in this way.” Laura Chapman, Chief Executive of The Freemasons’ Grand Charity

The Maurice Wohl Foundation

The Maurice Wohl Foundation has supported our research programmes since 2008 and named the Vivienne Wohl Unit at the Ovarian Cancer Research Centre.
