Review for Concern Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was first introduced to Concern Foundation more than five years ago and have since had the privilege to see the work that they do and how hard everyone works, including foundation president Derek Alpert. (That's a photo of us at this year's annual block party fundraiser!) His tireless work along with that of every person involved in this organization is inspiring. From holiday celebrations for children battling cancer to the annual fundraising party at Paramount Studios, Concern always manages to put a smile on people's faces even in the midst of difficult circumstances. Also, it's important to note that 90 to 95 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to fund cancer research scientists so that a cure can finally be discovered.

Review for Concern Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a member of the media (television & online), I was first introduced to Concern Foundation about six years ago through a volunteer publicist who was looking for coverage on the foundation's Block Party fundraiser at the Paramount Studios lot in Hollywood. I was so impressed with the organization's president, Derek Alpert, along with everyone else involved, that I've since been covering the event year after year. I have also participated as one of the emcees for the live auction.

I get asked to cover many charitable organizations, but Concern Foundation really shines above so many others. They demonstrate supreme integrity, love and compassion, and I am so grateful to have become just a very small part of the wonderful work they do.

The fact that 95% of donations go DIRECTLY to cancer research is a testament to their commitment to help the millions of men, women and children who are battling cancer in all its forms.

I wholeheartedly vote for Concern Foundation as one of the best non-profits in the world!
