Philanthropy - Barts Charity

We’re funding healthcare and medical research projects that will make a difference to millions of East Londoners, and which could transform how we understand and treat some of the biggest global health challenges.

Working together

We’re honoured to be working with some of the UK’s leading charitable healthcare funders, spanning individual philanthropists, Trusts and Foundations and corporations. These philanthropic relationships enable us to do more: supporting the next generation of clinical research leaders, funding equipment and infrastructure to help drive healthcare innovation, or helping to build facilities needed for world-class care and medical research. 

Philanthropy making a difference

These are just a few examples of what philanthropy has allowed us to do:

  • Research into complex neurological disorders that aim to make dementia and other devastating diseases preventable in the future.
  • Children’s hospital redevelopment in Newham, giving young patients across Barts Health equality of care.
  • Revolutionary equipment such as Cyberknife radiotherapy.
  • New technology for monitoring blood flow to the brain during complex heart surgery.
  • Sensory equipment and educational aids for children with eye cancer.

Barts 900 projects

In 2023, we celebrated the 900th anniversary of St Bartholomew's Hospital, and its unique track record of caring for Londoners, and driving breakthroughs in medical knowledge and practice. To mark that milestone, we have identified two projects which will carry forward that legacy for future generations: a Clinical Research Facility and a Breast Cancer Centre.
