AACR for the Prevention and Cure for Cancer

Start Fundraising

Welcome to the AACR Foundation's independant fundraising event page. With your help the AACR Foundation will further our mission to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration.

Independant fundraising events are a wonderful way to help spread the word about how research is powered by generous donations and are translated into research grants that are competitively awarded to scientists who are making significant contributions to cancer research. Every dollar raised leads to powerful discoveries in cancer research, supporting the top minds in the field, as well as the next generation of young investigators who are poised to take the lead in their respective areas of research.

Through the generosity of our donors, the AACR Foundation funds promising research grant proposals and supports young investigators as they establish and develop their cancer research careers. The Foundation's mission is clearly demonstrated by its support of scientists at all levels, especially in the transition from student to fellow to independent researcher.
