Very little federal cancer research funding is earmarked for childhood cancer research – in fact, it’s less than 10%. Children’s Cancer Research Fund helps fill the gap through fundraising so that innovative treatments and trials can get from bench to bedside more quickly. 

Our unique approach to funding research and family support programs makes us the organization where your fundraising efforts will stretch as far as possible. That’s because we focus on providing seed grants that allow researchers across the country with the most promising ideas to prove those theories, then leverage those findings to get even larger grants. This model is why, on average, for every $1 we invest in research, our scientists are able to secure $18 of funding.  Learn more
