Pledge any amount: Donors are encouraged to pledge at the amount of their choice that is allocated 100% to programs and services provided by the American Cancer Society, such as direct transportation assistance for patients receiving treatment in Southeast Texas, cancer research or the Houston Hope Lodge. As there are no sponsorship amenities provided for “Fund the Mission” donations, it is 100% tax deductible.
Pledge a minimum of $2500: Any donor who pledges a minimum of $2,500 toward the “Fund the Mission” initiative by October 9 will be offered the opportunity for a 30 second feature in the event night "Fund the Mission" video.
Commit your contribution by November 2: Any donors who commit to “Fund the Mission” by November 2 will also be featured in the event night digital program available to all event night viewers.
Local Transportation Grant Initiative:
Access to care, specifically transportation, continues to be a burden on many local patients facing treatment. Through our “Fund the Mission” initiative, donors have the opportunity to allocate contributions 100% to funding local transportation grants. All dollars pledged through this initiative will be available via application for cancer centers in our local communities.
Cancer Research (General) Initiative:
Next to the Federal Government, the Society is the largest funder of cancer research. In fact, we are currently funding over $410 million in research grants. You can help grow those efforts by pledging a donation that will be allocated 100% to cancer research.
Houston Hope Lodge:
The American Cancer Society Houston Hope Lodge is the largest Hope Lodge in the nation, with multiple stories, 64 patient suites, and occupying more than 68,000 square feet. At capacity, it will offer 23,000 nights of lodging per year, representing a combined savings to patients of over $4 million.
For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
