WEST ISLIP, NY   |  www.nationalcancercenter.org

Mission

National Cancer Centers 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 70 years, the National Cancer Center has been committed to funding basic research: the scientific investigation into how the bodys 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.

Notes from the nonprofit

We are currently working on new methodologies of fundraising and have employed a CRM tool to help us with wealth screening as well.

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 . WE AIM TO FUND AS MANY WORTHY AND INNOVATIVE STUDIES AS POSSIBLE TO INCREASE THE PROBABILITY OF A CURE.

BY EDUCATING THE PUBLIC IN AREAS OF CANCER PREVENTION, WE ENCOURAGE THEM TO TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR HEALTH THROUGH HEALTHY LIVING HABITS, SELF-DIAGNOSIS. AND VISITING THEIR DOCTORS FOR ONGOING TESTING.

OUR STRATEGY IS TO FOCUS ON INCREASING OUR FUNDRAISING AND BROADENING OUR OUTREACH.

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 HAVE ENLARGED OUR SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY BOARD WITH ADDITIONAL EXPERTS AT A VARIETY OF INSTITUTIONS TO AMPLIFY OUR PRESENCE AND BOOST OUR CREDIBILITY, THIS IS AN ONGOING PRIORITY.

FINALLY, WE ARE DEVELOPING NEW STRATEGIES TO OUTLINE OUR LONG TERM GOALS AND ENSURE THAT WE CONTINUE TO ADVANCE OUR MISSION IN A DELIBERATE WAY.

THROUGH OUR 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 FUNDED NEARLY $8 MILLION IN ITS RECENT HISTORY. WITH THESE FUNDS WE HAVE AWARDED GRANTS TO HUNDREDS OF YOUNG FELLOWS TO FUND BASIC SCIENTIFIC CANCER RESEARCH. BASIC SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH SEEKS TO REVEAL HOW AND WHY CANCER CELLS ARE RESISTANT TO DIFFERENT TREATMENTS.

FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS, NCC HAS EXCEEDED ITS GOALS, INCREASING NOT ONLY THE TOTAL NUMBER OF GRANTS GIVEN BUT ALSO TOTAL FUNDS AWARDED. IN FACT, NCC INCREASED ITS GRANT MONIES FROM $570,000. IN 2020 TO $678000 IN 2021, TO $702,000 IN 2022 - AN AGGREGATE 3 YEAR INCREASE OF $132,000 OR OVER 23%.

WE ARE WELL POISED TO CONTINUE PROGRESSING IN THIS DIRECTION.

WE FUND THE MOST PROMISING PROJECTS RECOMMENDED BY OUR ESTEEMED SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY BOARD THAT ADHERES TO THE STANDARDS OF THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH, IN SIX PROGRAM AREAS:

AGGRESSIVE CANCER PROJECT
BREAST CANCER PROJECT
CHILDREN'S CANCER PROJECT
FIGHTING CHILDHOOD LEUKEMIA
PROSTATE CANCER PROJECT
NCC PROJECT TO FUND INNOVATIVE STUDIES THAT FALL OUTSIDE OUR FIVE DESIGNATED PROGRAM AREAS.

EVERY YEAR WE RECEIVE MORE WORTHY APPLICATIONS THAN WE CAN FUND. IT IS OUR GOAL TO SUPPORT THE MOST QUALIFIED APPLICANTS EVERY YEAR. TO DO THIS WE AIM TO INCREASE THE TOTAL DOLLAR AMOUNT WE RAISE.
