At Endometriosis UK we rely on the generosity and determination of our fundraisers, donors and members to ensure we are able to help all those affected by endometriosis. Excellent stewardship of our supporters is vital to ensure their ongoing support for our activities – can you help us achieve this along with growing income in other areas so we can deliver our ambitious plans and help 1.5 million women with endometriosis? The year ahead promises to be an exciting time; we’ve just announced a partnership with Standard Life to raise awareness of endometriosis, and successfully raised money from the pharmaceutical sector for the first time to fund a Menstrual Wellbeing project with the Royal College of GPs. Help us build on this momentum.
