Hope Funds is not only the most efficient cancer research non-profit with 96 percent of dollars going into research, it also does the most comprehensive review of fellow candidates and research plans when deciding what cancer research projects to fund.  Hope Funds also prioritizes funding for areas of research where there is the greatest need.

The result is a dollar has more impact with Hope Funds than other non-profits.

Hope funds for Cancer Research donates 96 cents of each dollar raised to young research scientist. Very few non profits can make this statement.

The Hope Funds for Cancer Research highlights understudied/rare cancers and raises funds to provide research grants to cure them. It has grown enormously since it's inception and rather quickly. The Hope Funds honors scientists, philanthropists, and advocates with the Hope Funds Medals of Excellence every year at it's gala. This gives the fellows the opportunity to interact with esteemed professionals in the oncology field who often serve as models for their careers and inspirations to their work.

The Hope Funds for Cancer Research is a wonderful charity that is making an impact in the fight against cancer by funding young, amazingly bright researchers at a critical point in their careers. By distributing over 95% of the donations it receives to cancer researchers, this charity is working to better the lives and give hope to people with cancer.

The Hope Funds for Cancer Research is making a huge impact in a very short period of time and in a very cost efficient way by funding research by the best post-docs at the finest institutions (like Yale, Dana Farber, Rockefeller University and many others). These young researchers are the future of medicine. They have the most innovative ideas, the most energy and they are the least expensive to fund!

The Hope Funds has a rigorous, quantitative, peer review process to make sure that the best proposals are selected from the hundreds of applications they receive. The research they have funded in the most difficult to treat and understudied cancers has already made its way to Nature and Cell magazines, the pre-eminent journals of cancer biology. The Hope Funds, by leveraging its strong volunteer team, has a very low overhead rate (as Guidestar can attest) so nearly every penny of a donation goes to support the young researchers who will make the discoveries that will make a difference in your grandchildren’s, children’s (and maybe even our) lives.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Reading their annual reports and attending donor receptions and updates.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Want to see them have more money (and even an endowment) so that they can leverage the formula they have developed to help more researchers to solve more cancer mysteries.

How likely are you to donate to this group again?

Definitely

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

General funding of their mission.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

We are at a tipping point in the cancer research process and donations now will mean treatments for cancer are available sooner and for more patients.

What would you tell others about this organization?

They are smart, they are efficient, they know what they are doing and they are doing it better than anyone else. If you care about cancer this is the best way to leverage your contributions--whether $100 or $100,000.
