All over America today, people are giving of themselves to make sure future generations can have the hope of a world without cancer.

Assistance and support from people like you is what keeps us putting the best tools into the hands of the best researchers. Beating cancer will require something from almost all of us. Whether financial or practical, CRF needs your help. Find out how you can get involved!


You can start a campaign for anything. Run a race, pledge your birthday, or even throw a party to raise funds to help support groundbreaking cancer discoveries.

We want it to be easy for you to do something you love to raise awareness and donations for a cause you care about! We have created a simple way for you to get started through Crowdrise. After you create a campaign, tell your story, then tell your friends and family!

Get Started


Workplace giving is part of the Cancer Research Foundation’s DNA. When the Foundation was started, some of its most valuable fundraising came from a fund started and managed by the Goldblatt’s Stores employees. The Cancer Research Foundation has been supported by every type of employer. We have long time supporters in the CFC as well as corporations across the nation.

Planned Giving

Seven out of ten Americans will die this year without a leaving a will, which means that state governments will decide for them how their assets should be distributed. Make sure that your will reflects your dedication to the battle against cancer by indicating a special gift to the Cancer Research Foundation.

You can make a difference by including a simple clause in your will expressing your desire to make a contribution. Possible phrasing might include.

“I give and bequeath to the Cancer Research Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation located in Chicago, Illinois:

  • a cash bequest of $________ , a percentage (_ %) of my estate, all the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, for the uses and purposes of said corporation.”
