The Parasol Foundation Trust has collaborated with Cambridge University on a broad range of projects since 2009.
Our support enabled research on Darwin and gender as part of the internationally renowned Darwin Correspondence Project at Cambridge University Library.
The Foundation supported the library in its acquisition of the Lewis-Gibson Genizah Collection and supported a dedicated Genizah Research Associate to investigate the role and place of women in the medieval world of the Cairo Genizah.
Donations have also been made to the work of the Cambridge Trust which provides crucial support for outstanding students.
More recently the Foundation has been a significant benefactor to the Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club (CUWBC), contributing to the development of the first ever joint boathouse for all Cambridge University boat clubs at Ely.
