Huntsman Cancer Foundation is supported by more than 1 million donors and fundraisers dedicated to funding cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). A majority of our fundraisers already encourage their families and friends to donate to HCI, whether through our Huntsman Heroes endurance events, in honor of a birthday or special event, or in memory or honor of a loved one. Some fundraisers may want to use third-party platforms like GoFundMe and Facebook. Although these platforms are convenient, they are not the most effective ways to fundraise.

  • Most fundraising platforms take a percentage of the money raised before it goes to the organization or charity.
  • These platforms typically don’t give you the chance to thank your family or friends for their donation.
  • These platforms don’t let you designate your efforts to a specific type of cancer.
  • When the charity or organization receives the funds you raised, the organization gets very little information about the donor, making it hard for the organization to thank those donors for their support.

Huntsman Cancer Foundation offers a mobile-friendly, customizable do-it-yourself (DIY) platform, Fundraise for Huntsman, that ensures 100% of every dollar you fundraise goes directly to supporting research at HCI. DIY fundraising for HCI allows fundraisers to thank their friends and family for their support, establish a goal, and send out links via email and social media, all while being sure the funds are ending up in the right hands. Dollars raised can be designated to a specific cancer type as well.

The work of eradicating cancer is a collective one, and we are so grateful to all those who support our mission.
