Major donations boost for US member organisation
CancerCare Receives $1.1 Million in New Funds
From the CancerCare website 27 February 2018
CancerCare is excited to announce that we have received two donations from our corporate partners totaling $1.1 million dollars.
The New York Community Trust donated $700,000 and The Mary Kay Foundation donated $400,000. These funds will help CancerCare continue to provide financial assistance to those coping with a cancer diagnosis.
The Mary Kay Foundation aims to eliminate cancers affecting women and to end the epidemic of violence against women. The organization was founded in 1996 by Mary Kay Ash, after her husband passed away from lung cancer.
Since 1924, The New York Community Trust has helped make donors' charitable dreams come true by funding the nonprofits that make New York a vital and secure place. Learn more about CancerCare's financial assistance program.
