The Georgia Cancer Coalition is an independent, not-for-profit organization that unites government agencies, academic institutions, civic groups, corporations and health care organizations in a concerted effort to strengthen cancer prevention, research and treatment in Georgia, with the ultimate goal of making Georgia one of the nation’s premier states for cancer care. Our mission is to reduce the number of cancer-related deaths in Georgia.

Every dollar donated to the Georgia Cancer Research Fund goes to cancer clinicians and scientists doing research in Georgia; research which accelerates improvements in prevention, early detection, and treatment.

Since 2003, Georgians have voluntarily donated $2.75 million. Each dollar is matched by philanthropic and community resources, resulting in $5.5 million to fund nearly 60 research grants into the causes, treatments, and cures for cancer. Cancer Research Awards provide seed money for pilot studies which have the potential of attracting larger, more prestigious national awards.

In a competitive application process, proposals are reviewed and graded by oncology experts. Grants are only awarded to leading edge research aligned with the National Cancer Institute's top research priorities.
