BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
Research is at the heart of our mission. For more than 65 years, the American Cancer Society has been finding answers that save lives - from changes in lifestyle to new approaches in therapies to improving cancer patients' quality-of-life. In fact, no single nongovernmental, not-for-profit organization in the US has invested more to find the causes and cures of cancer.

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.

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.

“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.”
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.”
