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