Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community- based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.


The American Cancer Society, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation governed by a single Board of Directors that sets policy, develops and approves an enterprise-wide strategic plan and related resource allocation, and is responsible for the performance of the organization as a whole, with the advice and support of regionally based volunteer boards.

The Society’s structure includes a central corporate office in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as regional and local offices supporting 11 geographic Divisions. The corporate office is responsible for overall strategic planning; corporate support services like human resources, financial management, IT, etc.; development and implementation of global and nationwide endeavors such as our groundbreaking research program, our global health program, and our 24-hour call center; and provides technical support and materials to regional and local offices for local delivery.

Our regional and local offices are organized to engage communities in the cancer fight, delivering patient programs and services and raising money at the local level. Offices are strategically placed around the country in an effort to maximize the impact of our efforts, and to be as efficient as possible with the money donated to the Society to help finish the fight against cancer.

Cancer awareness is something that I hold dearly in my heart many of my close friends and family members have been negatively impacted by cancer. I would love the opportunity to give back.
