Maureen established the foundation to support medical research into the causes of and a cure for Bowel Cancer Research and Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and Dementia. She left a significant gift from her Estate to her foundation which continues to support these causes. The foundation will vest in 2037.

Eligible charities can apply for funding via an expression of interest process aligned with the Foundation’s giving strategy which has been developed via the Giving Connect service.
