Mission Statement

Concern Foundation’s mission is to conquer cancer by funding innovative research projects performed by the most talented young scientists around the world.

Description

Concern Foundation is an independent, volunteer-driven organization conceived in 1968 by a group of friends who wanted to make sure their dollars counted in the fight against cancer.

With 90-95% of net proceeds (based on 2014 financial audit) going directly to research, Concern has raised more than $57 million dollars and funded 750 cancer research scientists studying cancer, primarily in the areas of cancer genetics, cell biology, and immunology.

By specifically targeting promising post- doctoral scientists and providing critically needed "seed" money for innovative projects, Concern Foundation bridges the gap that currently exists in the scientific research community.
