American Cancer Society's Fundraiser:

Fund the Next Generation of Cancer Researchers

THE STORY:

Research is at the heart of our mission and we’ve played a role in most major cancer breakthroughs in recent history.

Each year, hundreds of young researchers go unfunded, without the chance to look for the next possible cancer breakthrough. These researchers are some of the most innovative, scientific professionals in their field and could be the key to finding more and better cancer treatment options and prevention methods. Donate now to help fund their research.

The American Cancer Society is a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

about these younger researchers

You asked for a chance to donate directly to cancer research and we listened. Throughout the month of March, our CrowdRise initiative gives you the opportunity to directly support the next generation of researchers through a restricted, tax-deductible gift to the American Cancer Society’s post-doctoral grant program.



You asked for a chance to donate directly to cancer research and we listened...


Research is at the heart of our mission and we’ve played a role in nearly every cancer breakthrough in recent history. Throughout the month of February we are promoting an initiative on CrowdRise to directly support the next generation of researchers.

Each year, hundreds of young researchers go unfunded, without the chance to research the next possible cancer breakthrough. These researchers are some of the most innovative, scientific professionals in their field and could be the key to finding cancer treatment options and prevention methods.



Meet Some of Our Researchers:

Zhenglun (Jerry) Zhu

Physician at Brigham & Woman’s Hospital, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School

“My primary funding of research is from ACS, it’s fair to say the ACS saved my academic life. Through this funding, from what we understand now and what we see…has turned into a belief that cancer is a treatable disease.”

Cigall Kadoch

Assistant Professor, Department of Pediatric Oncology at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard Medical School

“ACS provided funding at a critical stage of the development of my career…enabling us to do some of the most exciting studies right up front.”
