THE RICHARD DIMBLEBY CANCER FUND 

Since 1966, The Richard Dimbleby Cancer Fund has supported people living with cancer in the UK. Today our main focus is the online national resource, cancercaremap.org. Previous projects include the work of Dimbleby Cancer Care at Guy's and St Thomas', The Richard Dimbleby Research Fund and The Richard Dimbleby Chair of Cancer Research at King's College London,
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Spending is declining
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
