Funding the future events

Our Funding the Future events are open to all, and provide a unique opportunity to discover more about the innovative research our supporters have helped to fund and meet the researchers working at the forefront of prostate cancer research. We are dedicated to fighting prostate cancer through funding research, supporting men and raising awareness, and we rely entirely on donations from our supporters in order to fund this work. Gifts in Wills play a huge part of that support.

Our events are held throughout the year at venues across the UK, they are free to attend and are a unique opportunity to learn about our work we are doing and the research we have funded in your area. You'll have the chance to find out more about the work we're doing in your local area, hear from the incredible researchers funded by your support and discover the important role gifts in Wills play in our groundbreaking work.

At previous events, researchers have spoken about a variety of topics, including solving the problem of resistance to hormone therapy, why prostate cancer spreads to bones and how we can create more targeted treatments for men with the disease. A complimentary lunch is also included where there will be an opportunity for us to answer any questions you may have on the day. Some events also provide an opportunity to visit a working research laboratory.

None of our research would be possible without the generosity of our supporters, which is why you'll also learn how vital gifts in your Wills are in protecting future generations of men and their families from prostate cancer.
