The European School of Oncology receives the bulk of its funding through permanent and unrestricted grants from private legacies and donations through its two sustaining foundations: the Swiss-based European School of Oncology Foundation and the Italian Fondazione per la Formazione Oncologica. Additional funding sources include royalties, income from conferences, donations from individual supporters, and grants from commercial companies through its Sharing Progress in Cancer Care programme.

ESO’s financial independence gives it a freedom to set its own agenda that is rare among independent providers of oncology education, enabling it to address topics that are of little interest to commercial companies, including surgery and rare cancers (including childhood tumours), and to fund activities in countries and regions with limited economic resources.
