Since our inception, CancerFree KIDS has funded 124 research projects totaling nearly $4.4 million. We accept applications from only a handful of institutions whose research we greatly respect and with whom we have a close relationship. Our funding goes directly to the research project where every dollar is accounted for. A follow up report assures that funding is used to maximum effect and we maintain communication with each researcher as we continue to follow their progress beyond our funding cycle.
CancerFree KIDS donors know they are making a difference and that we are good stewards of our donor’s dollars. We provide detailed Donor Reports so they know exactly what research their donations are helping fund. We even invite donors to a Meet the Researchers Event each year in Cincinnati, so they can learn more about the projects and talk directly with the grant recipients.
On June 19, 2018 CancerFree KIDS awarded $800,000 in research grants to projects at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Nationwide Children’s Hospital (Columbus, OH). Over 100 CancerFree KIDS’ ambassadors gathered to celebrate this accomplishment.
