Our Supporters

Money to fund a research grant, information for cancer patients and survivors, cancer awareness programs for young and old - these are just some of the ways our supporters’ gifts are put to work through the American Institute for Cancer Research.

Our supporters have become part of a community of more than 14 million Americans who donate their time and money to our work. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are able to forge new ground in cancer research and translate its findings for those who need it.

What Our Supporters Say

"My fiancé and I wanted to honor my father and his grandfather who passed away from cancer, as well as my fiancé himself and his sister who are cancer survivors. We searched online for a wedding favors in lieu of traditional favors that benefitted a cancer organization…we liked the sound of [AICR's Wedding Favors] best.”

— Jessica & Dan.
