Funding Process

Donations with Impact

Your donation to Roswell Park Cancer Institute is used for cutting-edge research and compassionate, innovative patient care. Funds donated to Roswell Park help speed the pace of research by acting as seed funding for new investigations. This past year, your support helped fund research with the goal of: 

  • Improving screening and early detection so doctors can catch cancers in their earliest, most-treatable stages
  • Boosting the immune system’s natural ability to fight cancer
  • Fully understanding the role that individual genes play in order to create targeted new treatments with fewer side effects

Your donations can be the difference needed to maintain and expand critical research efforts. Top cancer scientists competitively apply for funding each year, and grants are only awarded to studies ranked as having the greatest potential impact in saving lives. Donations are further used to improve patient and family experiences, support new clinical treatments and procedures, provide proper clinical space to meet increasing demand for cancer services and educate the next generation of cancer scientists and clinicians.
