Funding Process

Donations with Impact

Your donation to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center is used for cutting-edge research and compassionate patient-care programs. Funds donated to Roswell Park help speed the pace of research by acting as seed funding for new projects that may not otherwise receive funding. 

An internal, objective committee decides what projects receive funding based on their ability to find cancer cures and save lives. The initiatives that receive support often lead to long-term funding from national organizations, as well as new treatments. On average, every dollar donated to Roswell Park leads to an additional $13 in new grant funding.

In fiscal year 2018-19, 11 new projects received a total of more than $1.2 million in funding, thanks to your support.
