Support Priority Needs
Every Community. All Cancer Types. Every Step of the Way.
From becoming a monthly donor, to holding a fundraising event, to making a major gift or leaving a gift in your will, there are many different ways to give – to help Albertans facing cancer. Regardless of the type of gift you choose to make, the most impactful way to support Albertans facing cancer is by donating to our Priority Needs fund.
What does this mean? Simply put, funds raised in support of priority needs are undesignated which allow the Alberta Cancer Foundation to remain flexible in a world full of change. These funds can provide immediate impact by allowing us to respond to what cancer patients need today rather than having to wait for fundraising campaigns to be completed tomorrow. After all, new cancer treatments, research, support systems and ideas are being developed every single day. And, Albertans deserve access to the very best in treatment and care, close to home, as soon as it is available. Because, with cancer, every moment counts and everything we do, we do with one goal in mind: to create more moments for Albertans facing cancer.
Your support of our Priority Needs fund will allow us to respond quickly when cutting edge research comes to light or when costly equipment must be replaced at each of the 17 cancer centres across the province. Such gifts support patients whose cancer journey has put them in a financial bind, and others who have ran out of all other treatment options and are turning to a clinical trial as a last resort, a last hope.
Because, as the past few years have highlighted, you never know what tomorrow will bring. But, what we do know is that a gift to our Priority Needs fund will provide us with the agility to better help Albertans facing cancer and move us one step closer to a cancer-free future.
