About AACR

We Are On a Mission

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) raises funds to find cures for 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 120 countries to understand, prevent, and treat every type of cancer.

In just the last 17 years, the AACR has provided over $382 million in funding to cancer researchers who are working on the frontlines to defeat cancer. We are dedicated to making sure that the maximum amount of each donation goes to support cancer researchers, including young scientists to ensure progress continues to advance well into the future against this deadly disease that affects so many of our loved ones.

Your generous donations help us to:

  • 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.

All donations will directly support lifesaving cancer research through the AACR. If you also have a survivor story to share, we would love to hear from you!  Your message can help thousands of other cancer patients, caregivers, and members of the cancer community.
