Fund A Need:

This year, 100% of your gift will fund the American Cancer Society’s mission to improve the lives of people with cancer and their families through advocacy, research, and patient support, to ensure everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer.

Access to care for all

Advocating for high-quality, affordable health care for everyone, including closing the Medicaid coverage gap, through our American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network℠.


Prevention and screening

Educating and advocating for healthy lifestyles and environments, including the promotion of regular screening, and trusted source of screening recommendations for health care professionals.


Direct patient support

Providing multiple support programs for people with cancer and their caregivers, including a home away from home at our Hope Lodge ® communities when they need to travel for treatment and free access to cancer information via our 24/7 helpline.



Investing more than $3 billion from 1991-2020, the American Cancer Society is the largest non-governmental funder of cancer research, contributing to 3.8 million fewer cancer deaths as a result of breakthroughs.
