Our ROI equals young lives saved

We’re committed to sharing transparent and complete financial information with our donors and the community. Below is a snapshot of our performance during the 2015 fiscal year.

In the past 35 years, Children’s Cancer Research Fund has provided $139 million for research, education and quality-of-life programs dedicated to better outcomes for childhood cancer patients.

Children’s Cancer Research Fund relies on direct mail to raise money that funds research for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of childhood cancers. In addition, direct mail provides us with the opportunity to share educational information about childhood cancer and its effects on families and the community with our donors and the general public. Research, education and patient support are all important elements of our mission. As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board guidelines, we allocate a portion of our direct mail costs to both fundraising and program services.
