About the Foundation

Established in 1991, the Roswell Park Alliance Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that manages all donations made to Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Since its inception, over $266 million has been contributed to benefit the Institute's research, education and patient care programs.

 

Mission

To maximize dollars available for Roswell Park Cancer Institute’s most promising lifesaving research, treatment and prevention programs, while supporting the psychosocial needs of patients and families touched by cancer. Fundraising events and initiatives are carried out through a partnership between committed Roswell Park Alliance volunteers and Foundation staff.

 

Priority Funding Areas

  • Scientific research seed funding for projects showing the greatest potential to save lives
  • State-of-the-art medical/scientific technology and shared resources
  • Capital support for Institute-wide building, clinic and center growth
  • "Quality of Life"  programs benefiting patients and families

 

Deciding How Donor Dollars Are Spent

  • Roswell Park’s Scientific Advisory Committee – comprised of clinicians, scientists, and administrative managers – meets twice annually to award grants through a competitive application and review process.
  • Quality of Life grants are determined by a committee made up of those closest to Roswell’s patients – nurses, physicians, and representatives from other patient care and support areas.
