About AACR

We Are On a Mission

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) raises funds to cure all of the more than 200 types of cancer.

As the world’s first and largest cancer research organization, founded in 1907, the AACR works with institutions and scientists in over 100 countries to understand, prevent, and eradicate every type of cancer.

In the last 15 years, the AACR has provided over $200 million in grants to ensure that the world is moving towards being cancer-free. We are dedicated to fundraising in innovative ways and to making sure that the maximum amount of each donation goes directly to cancer research.

Your generous donations help us:

  • Raise awareness and promote understanding of cancer and cancer research.
  • Ensure that researchers have access to cutting-edge technology and all resources necessary to fight cancer aggressively.
  • Develop educational and professional opportunities for future generations of cancer researchers.
