Parasol Foundation Trust

The Parasol Foundation Trust has been dedicated for over ten years to enriching individuals and communities worldwide, and enabling them to prosper through various educational, cultural and medical initiatives.

The Trust plays a central role in innovative, inspirational and life-changing projects, guided personally by individual members of the International Advisory Board and the Trust itself, who are so passionate about creating a better world for generations to come.

Ruth Parasol, the Principal Benefactress and Founder of the Parasol Foundation Trust writes:

“Our mission is to enable change by supporting talented individuals and core centres of health and education, in order to create a better future for the next generation. Through education, cutting-edge technologies, advanced medical treatments and culture preservation, we hope to contribute to a better and brighter future.”

In 2017 and 2018 the Foundation Trust generously supported female postgraduate students who are pursuing science subjects at the University of Cambridge.
