Cancer Center Philanthropic Campaign

The University of Illinois Cancer Center is in the first year of a five-year, $50 million philanthropic campaign to provide the next level of impact for patients with cancer, and to close the cancer disparities gap in Chicago, Cook County and beyond.

The “Care for Communities. Science for the World.” campaign will help the Cancer Center change the face of cancer care; improve outcomes for thousands of patients; and ensure our momentum in training diverse, essential experts who will lead and share this work into the future.

The Cancer Center’s impact is recognized by its peers and now at a national level. The Cancer Center’s outstanding science, comprehensive community outreach and education, and progress in training a diverse and inclusive workforce contribute to our ability to revolutionize cancer care. The Cancer Center is pursuing National Cancer Institute designation, an accreditation given by the National Institutes of Health to U.S. based institutions that are leaders in addressing the nation’s cancer burden.

This is an extraordinary time in the more than 30-year history of the Cancer Center, as it continues to strive to reduce and eliminate inequalities in cancer outcomes through community-driven, scientific solutions for equitable outcomes in screening, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. Throughout its journey, the Cancer Center, with the support of this philanthropic campaign, can continue to make possible affordable, quality cancer care with equitable effects and access for all.
