We are the nation’s only foundation that directs our funding solely to basic science, a critical aspect of the research continuum. We provide “seed money” to researchers to allow them to pursue novel ideas to detect cancer earlier and with greater precision. These H Foundation Grants are used to help researchers advance their projects to a level to compete for additional government and private funding where the money has grown, logarithmically, into more than $50 million for cancer research.
“The H Foundation is a Model for Community Commitment to the Cause of Cancer Prevention and Elimination.”
– Dr. Steven M. Rosen, MD, Emeritus Cancer Center Director
