We’re off and running for 2020!

The market’s growth along with our continued conservative investment approach has found us approaching $2 million in assets…not bad for an organization that started with a mere $5,000 donation.

As we reflect on last year’s activities, we are proud to report that the Foundation continues to support Cancer League Funds Allocation Committee with donations for Cancer research grants, service grants to support cancer patients and donations to the University of Colorado Cancer Centers annual summer intern program.

The Foundation’s Board approved a moderate change in the Investment policy that allowed UBS, our Financial Advisor, to reallocate assets positioning us to benefit.

The Foundation’s Board would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of the members of the Endowment of Hope for their contributions and continued support of Cancer League and the Foundation.  Without your trust and support we would not be where we are today.

Do you want to support Cancer League of Colorado Foundation?  It’s easy.
  1. Be the Foundations advocate, and tell your family and friends about Cancer League and the Foundation.

  2. Remember the Foundation when talking to your Financial Advisor and Estate Planner.

  3. Designate the Foundation as a beneficiary to your IRA or Retirement plan.

  4. Even simpler, make a direction donation to the Foundation.

The Foundation Board would like to express gratitude for the many volunteers that contribute time, energy and support for Cancer League of Colorado and we are looking forward to Cancer League’s big, upcoming anniversary.

Please remember to contact your accountant or financial advisor about your estate planning goals. 


Our Foundation was established in 1997 as a means to create a permanent charitable endowment for Cancer League.

As an all-volunteer organization, Cancer League of Colorado depends heavily on philanthropic support to fulfill its mission. By charter, all gifts received by Cancer League of Colorado are used in the year received to fund preliminary research and service needs, supporting the community’s most promising efforts. Because our charter does not allow for charitable endowment, we established the Cancer League of Colorado Foundation.

The Foundation’s investments are managed by professional asset managers and overseen by our Investment Committee. Currently, UBS Financial Services serves as the Foundation’s financial advisor and portfolio manager. Please consider CLC Foundation in your estate plan.

Since 2007, we have donated more than $150,000 to Cancer League of Colorado. The sole mission of the Foundation is to support the funding of research and service grants by Cancer League.

Earnings from the endowment provide additional, ongoing support for Cancer League.

Help Cancer League of Colorado fight to find a cure for cancer by including the CLC Foundation in your estate plans.
