Funding Innovative Cancer Research

For over 45 years, and with the enduring and generous support of friends and supporters from the music, business, and medical communities, we have funded innovative, early-stage cancer research at leading NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers across the United States. 

Our funding brings together the best and the brightest minds in clinical and translational cancer science, targeting funding to where it matters most – supporting high-risk, high-gain cancer research that propels the science forward and ultimately saves lives!

Grant applications are assessed, reviewed, and judged by a volunteer group of oncology experts in a rigorous peer-review process. We fill an important niche in the field of cancer research. Our investment unlocks the larger NIH funding grants needed to pursue clinical trials and develop exciting new treatments and cures for cancer.

We are nurturing the next generation of scientists who will bring us that much closer to a world without cancer.
