Non Profit Organizations
The American Cancer Society is on a mission to free the world from cancer. For more than 100 years, we have helped lead an evolution in the way the world prevents, detects, treats, and thinks about cancer. As the nation’s preeminent cancer-fighting organization, we fund and conduct research, share expert information, support people with cancer, spread the word about prevention, and through our advocacy affiliate, ACS CAN, advocate for public policy change. We are committed to ensuring that ALL people have a fair and just opportunity to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer – regardless of income, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, or where they live. Thanks in large part to our decades of work, a cancer diagnosis does not come without hope, and the cancer journey is not one that is traveled alone.
The American Cancer Society intends to further our lifesaving mission and move us even closer to a world without cancer by focusing on the core areas of Research, Education, Advocacy, and Service. Targeting our efforts toward these critical areas enables us to advance our mission even further and ensure we are the most impactful cancer organization in the world.
