Grand View League has been supporting the American Cancer Society since the League's inception in 1995. In its 26-year history, nearly $17 million has been raised to fund cancer research and mission services. Cancer hasn't stopped, so neither can we. Raising the much-needed funds for the Society's research and mission services is even more critical now than ever.
The Grand View League Research Funding Initiative (GVL RFI) launched in 2016. This initiative has funded a local cancer research scientist each year since its inception with a total of six being funded to date. The GVL RFI is unique in that 100% of donations to the initiative go to funding local cancer research. Donors of $1,000 or more actually participate in selecting the research grant to be funded.
The American Cancer Society is working to finish the fight against every cancer in every community. We are the largest private, not-for-profit funder of cancer research in the United States, investing more than $5 billion since 1946. Thanks in part to our contributions, more than 1.5 million lives have been saved in the US in the past two decades. Now, that is a reason to celebrate!
With your support, the American Cancer Society saves lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer. We hope you will join us and help the American Cancer Society finish the fight against cancer.
