In all our work we pursue rights-based approaches, gender equality and  partnership with organisation we fund.

We support civil society as a pillar of democracy and justice and nurture innovation and visionary leadership within it. We value diversity both within Oak and among our partners; we seek to be inclusive, flexible and engage with different points of view. We believe that the best grant-making reflects both careful due diligence and the willingness to take risks.

Following an Oak grant of GBP 25 million, The Royal Marsden, based in London, the United Kingdom, will soon begin constructing a state-of-the-art research and clinical care centre on its Sutton site in Outer London.


This centre will house over 300 researchers under the same roof as patients, increasing opportunities for collaboration and putting patients at the heart of research into new treatments. It will also expand The Royal Marsden’s capacity and, using the latest and best possible technology, the Centre will provide patients with earlier and faster diagnosis as well as modern and peaceful environments.
