FOUNDATION INFORMATION

FOUNDATION
UPDATE.

The market’s growth along with our continued conservative investment approach has found us at $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 the Cancer League Funds Allocation Committee with donations for Cancer research grants, investigator-initiated clinical trials and service grants to support cancer patients and their families.  We have done this in part by supporting Cancer League's fundraising efforts for the Hope Ball and Over the Edge, and we plan to sponsor all major Cancer League events going forward.

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.
  • Be the Foundations advocate and tell your family and friends about Cancer League and the Foundation.

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

  • Designate the Foundation as a beneficiary to your IRA, insurance policy or Retirement plan.

  • Please confer with your legal or tax professional for advice specific to your giving plan.

  • 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.

HISTORY.

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

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

The Foundation’s investments are managed by professional asset managers and overseen by the Foundation's Investment Committee. Currently, UBS Financial Services serves as the Foundation’s financial advisor and portfolio manager.

The sole mission of the Foundation is to support the funding of research and service grants by Cancer League. Since 2007, we have allocated more than $315,000 to Cancer League.


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