Making an Impact
Only research will spark new discoveries in childhood cancer, leading to clinical trial options for patients today and ultimately, to less-toxic treatments for patients around the world. We know that our volunteers and donors place their trust in us to identify and fund the most innovative research projects while effectively managing expenses to maximize program support.
In 2021, 73% of our expenses were allocated to programs, primarily research grants across our three research funding arms: Young Investigator, Acceleration Initiative and Catapult Awards. Our active projects include phase 1 clinical trials testing potentially groundbreaking new treatment for the deadly brain tumors DIPG and high-grade glioma, and the preclinical development of innovative new therapies for hard-to-treat tumors like neuroblastoma and a high-risk subtype of ALL. For 2022, we anticipate that our program investment will continue to exceed 70% of total expenses.
We are grateful to the donors, fundraisers, and volunteers who support our shared mission to end children’s cancer, and we are committed to stewarding every dollar raised toward the greatest impact on the children, adolescents, and young adults who are depending on us.
