Creating Opportunity

Over £35,000,000 in grants since inception

About

We’re creating opportunities for women to pursue their dreams and inspiring the next generation to follow in their footsteps.

The Parasol Foundation Trust has awarded over £35mn to a series of ambitious projects and collaborations since it was established in 2004.

A tech pioneer and entrepreneur, Ruth Monicka Parasol is passionate about widening opportunities, supporting women’s health and helping women to achieve their potential in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Medicine.

We’re supporting projects and communities in the UK, Israel, US and Gibraltar and funding long-term initiatives with an international outlook.

With a combined donation of over £6.5mn, our most recent projects with the V&A, SpaceIL and Imperial College Healthcare all share a focus on creating and sustaining empowering opportunities for women.
