The Rosetrees Trust is a private UK charity that has been funding medical research for over 30 years. Rosetrees was set up in 1987 by Nat and Teresa Rosenbaum who celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary by creating a charity to give back to society after building a successful business from scratch. They began by focussing on social and elderly causes. Since 1990, the charity has also funded medical research with a venture philanthropy approach to provide seedcorn support for the best new ideas. Rosetrees also funds translational research that delivers early clinical benefits in areas such as cancer, heart disease, strokes and diabetes.[1]

Today, Rosetrees is headed by Nat and Teresa Ross’s son, Richard Ross, who was awarded the Spear’s Philanthropist of the Year Award in 2011 and a CBE in the 2021 Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for services to Philanthropy during Covid-19. [2]

A scientific panel of internationally renowned researchers advise Rosetrees on which projects to fund. Rosetrees currently supports 360 research projects in the UK and Israel and has given nearly £3 million to the Institute of Cancer Research since 1991.[3]

Rosetrees also supports community projects such as Jami (specialist provider of mental health services in the Jewish community) and Gesher, a primary school that helps children with special educational needs such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia and Down’s Syndrome.[4] [5]
