Trusts and Foundations

Trusts and Foundations play a crucial role in the work of Prostate Cancer UK. We constantly need your support so that we can continue to fight prostate cancer on every front: through research, support, information and campaigning.

The support of Trusts and Foundations enables us to:

  • fund world class medical research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of the disease
  • provide support and information to men with prostate cancer and their loved ones
  • raise awareness amongst the public to ensure that men know the signs and symptoms of the disease
  • campaign for equality of access to high quality treatment and care

Opportunities for Trusts and Foundations

If you are a Trustee of a Trust or Foundation or know someone who is, and would like to make a difference for men affected by prostate cancer and their loved ones, please consider supporting Prostate Cancer UK.

We would like to thank ...

We are very grateful for all the help we receive from Trusts and Foundation, but would like to highlight the following valued supporters:

The Mike Gooley Trailfinders Charity

"I am very proud to be a Patron and supporter of this truly worthwhile cause."

Mike Gooley, CBE, and founder of Trailfinders, has been supporting Prostate Cancer UK since 1997, with donations of over £1 million through the Mike Gooley Trailfinders Charity. This wonderful support enabled us to establish the Trailfinders Research Studentships Programme in 2006, through which the Mike Gooley Trailfinders Charity is funding our Studentship projects. Studentships are medical research projects involving highly qualified new science graduates working in the best academic and laboratory environments. They are important as they encourage gifted graduates to take up a career in prostate cancer research, which has great benefits for the prostate cancer research field.

Trailfinders are specialists in tailor-made travel worldwide. For further information please visit

The Headley Trust and The Henry Smith Charity

For supporting our Volunteer Programme, enabling us to recruit and train volunteers, all with direct experience of prostate cancer, to raise awareness of the disease and provide vital peer support to men with prostate cancer and their families.

The Milly Apthorp Charitable Trust

Special thanks go to the Milly Apthorp Charitable Trust for supporting three of our scientific research projects, helping us learn more about how prostate cancer develops and how it can be treated and diagnosed.
