Alberta Cancer Foundation
Every day, 43 Albertans hear the words “you have cancer”. The Alberta Cancer Foundation aims to make a difference today, for every Albertan that is affected by these three words.
Like our donors, we are impatient. We are pushing forward for faster results that will improve the lives of 43 Albertans today and for every coming day until we achieve our vision of a cancer-free Alberta.
This vision is bold. To realize it, we have to do things differently. We take a strategic approach to investing donor dollars, toward initiatives and programs that will lead to:.
- Research and programs that have a clear impact for patients
- Earlier detection
- Improved treatments and an enhanced quality of life.
Unlike any other philanthropic organization in Alberta, we only invest in ideas that will deliver results to cancer patients. As the fundraising partner for all of Alberta’s cancer centres, including the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton and the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary. The Alberta Cancer Foundation ensures that our investments directly support cancer patients.
We know that collaboration will speed up the rate of progress. We bring donors, patients, health care providers and researchers together. So that they may work together in reaching their goals, that alone would be unreachable.
Our mission is to make Alberta the leader in cancer prevention research and care. Our vision is a cancer-free future. We strive to be one of the most innovative philanthropic organization in Canada. We achieve this by delivering transformational results for those waging the war against cancer, and their families.
