Mission

National Cancer Center’s mission is two-fold: funding research and providing education on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. We are dedicated to the task of seeking out and providing financial support to researchers undertaking thorough, innovative and promising studies on topics relating to conquering cancer. For 65 years, the National Cancer Center has been committed to funding basic research: the scientific investigation into how the body’s immune system sees and responds to cancer when it initially develops, research that seeks to reveal how and why cancer cells are resistant to different treatments.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

NATIONAL CANCER CENTER SEEKS TO CURE CANCER BY INVESTING IN SCIENTIFIC CANCER RESEARCH TO FIND BETTER DIAGNOSTICS, MORE EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS AND ULTIMATELY, A CURE. IN ADDITION, WE AIM TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC IN AREAS OF CANCER PREVENTION AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR HEALTH THROUGH HEALTHY LIVING HABITS, SELF-DIAGNOSIS. AND VISITING THEIR DOCTORS FOR ONGOING TESTING.

WE ARE WORKING HARD TO ENHANCE OUR SOCIAL MEDIA VISIBILITY THROUGH FACEBOOK, LINKEDIN, TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM, AND ARE INCREASINGLY UTILIZING ON-LINE FUNDRAISING VEHICLES.

FURTHER, WE HAVE ESTABLISHED A MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE THAT IS IMPLEMENTING PUBLIC RELATIONS, MARKETING AND OUTREACH TO INCREASE OVERALL AWARENESS ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION AND ITS WORK AND INCREASE GRANT APPLICATIONS.

WE ARE WORKING TO ENLARGE OUR SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY BOARD WITH ADDITIONAL EXPERTS AT A VARIETY OF INSTITUTIONS TO AMPLIFY OUR PRESENCE AND BOOST OUR CREDIBILITY.

FINALLY, WE HAVE DEVELOPED A STRATEGIC PLAN TO OUTLINE OUR LONG TERM GOALS AND ENSURE THAT WE CONTINUE TO ADVANCE OUR MISSION IN A DELIBERATE WAY.

THROUGH OUR SWEEPSTAKES PROGRAMS, WE REACH THOUSANDS OF HOUSEHOLDS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES WITH OUR EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS. OUR STATE OF THE ART WEBSITE IS A USEFUL TOOL FOR GAINING DONATIONS AS WELL.

THROUGH OUR WEBSITE WE CAN HELP DONORS MOVE BEYOND SIMPLISTIC WAYS OF NON-PROFIT GIVING.

NATIONAL CANCER CENTER HAS RAISED OVER $6.5 MILLION IN ITS HISTORY AND HAS OFFERED GRANTS TO HUNDREDS OF YOUNG FELLOWS TO FUND BASIC SCIENTIFIC CANCER RESEARCH INVESTIGATING INTO HOW AND WHY THE BODY'S IMMUNE SYSTEM SEES AND RESPONDS TO CANCER WHEN IT INITIALLY DEVELOPS. BASIC SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH SEEKS TO REVEAL HOW AND WHY CANCER CELLS ARE RESISTANT TO DIFFERENT TREATMENTS.
