The H Foundation

Committed to Finding a Cure for Cancer

The H Foundation was created, as all great ideas are, over a cocktail called the Goombay Smash. It started out as a few friends with entrepreneurial spirit that decided they could make a difference in the fight against cancer. So, every Summer The H Foundation hosts the Goombay Bash, a fundraising event under the disguise of a casual Caribbean-style party.

Since 2001, The H Foundation has raised over $8 million donating nearly every dollar raised to the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. These funds are used as seed money for basic science cancer research projects to help them compete for additional government or private funding. As a result, our donations have been leveraged into over $50 million of research dollars towards finding a cure.

The H Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 100% of our funding comes from donations by generous businesses, communities, families, individuals, and...from you.
