About The Pink Ribbon Foundation

The Pink Ribbon Foundation is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, have been affected by breast cancer, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer and its early detection and treatment.

There are a large number of such charities in the UK, each as deserving as the next. Many of the charities supported are the smaller ones, which operate on a shoestring.

The Pink Ribbon Foundation has very little infrastructure.

It relies on the hard work given by Trustees, interested parties and its Patrons. This is done in order to maximise the amount, which goes to the charities that benefit from the funds raised.

Some of the charities who we've helped


What People Say About Us

We were so impressed with all that you are doing at the Pink Ribbon Foundation to raise funds to assist charities like the Centre.

South East Cancer Help Centre Ltd

Without the grant from the Pink Ribbon Foundation we would be unable to help so many visitors and we are very grateful for their support.

The Primrose Centre

Without the support of Foundations such as the Pink Ribbon Foundation, we simply could not afford to offer a free, highly skilled programme of care that has made such a difference to our visitors.

Breast Cancer Haven

Our ground-breaking work into prevention, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer has seen survival rates double over the last 40 years. This would not be possible without the help of supporters such as the Pink Ribbon Foundation.

Cancer Research UK

On behalf of nurses, patients and families we would like to thank the Pink Ribbon Foundation for their generosity in supporting our crucial services.

Marie Curie Cancer Care

Without the generosity of supporters such as the Pink Ribbon Foundation, none of the women we have served would have had their treatment closer to home, or accessed the counselling, advice, social support or financial help needed.

Tenovus Cancer Care

The CANCERactive team think that the Pink Ribbon Foundation is brilliant and we would be lost without their support.


Our Pink Ribbon Foundation grant allows us to review all our health information and begin creating resources for groups with protected characteristics, thereby reaching as many people as possible from diverse audiences with our breast awareness message. It is our mission to educate, encourage and empower everyone, and with the support of Pink Ribbon Foundation we were able to continue our life-saving work. Thank you PRF!


The money granted to us by the Pink Ribbon Foundation is in good hands and being used to help the people of East Kent – we now have the symptomatic facilities in the UK. This will save lives!

East Kent Breast Cancer Mammography Appeal

We are thankful to the Pink Ribbon Foundation for kindly supporting our work so that we can provide practical and emotional support to women facing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer in Norfolk and Suffolk. This funding has been vital to us developing our NHS partnerships and littlelifts community so that many more women can be supported in the years to come.

Little Lifts

Feedback shows that counselling has had a major impact on the ability to cope with a cancer diagnosis, its impact on lives and relationships and on levels of confidence. Our grant from the Pink Ribbon Foundation has been able to cover direct costs for providing these counselling sessions to people affected by breast cancer. Thank you!

Positive Action on Cancer

Thank you to the Pink Ribbon Foundation for the grant awarded to Victoria’s Promise to help us continue our vital work. This grant enables us to continue to support and empower women by giving them the opportunity to take part in online webinars on valuable topics such as mindfulness, nutrition, sleep and weekly yoga classes, all of which make a real difference and help remove the feeling of isolation that facing a cancer diagnosis can bring.
