Become a “Fund the Mission” donor:
Help the American Cancer Society “Fund the Mission” by directly allocating funds to transportation assistance in Louisiana or cancer research.

All donors who make a pledge by July 1 will be included in the program and announced during the event in front of over 300 distinguished guests from the area. Donors are not required to be present for recognition, but additional information is available for the event. Make your online donation today!
Local Paid Transportation Grant Initiative:
Access to care, specifically transportation, continues to be a burden on many local patients facing treatment. Through our “Fund the Mission” initiative, donors have the opportunity to allocate contributions 100% to funding local transportation grants. All dollars pledged through this initiative will be available via application for cancer centers in our local communities, such as Shreveport.
Cancer Research (General) Initiative:
Next to the Federal Government, the Society is the largest funder of cancer research. In fact, we are currently funding over $410 million in research grants. You can help grow those efforts by pledging a donation that will be allocated 100% to cancer research.
Pediatric Cancer Research Initiative:
The American Cancer Society funds scientists and medical professionals who research cancer or train at medical schools, universities, research institutes, and hospitals throughout the United States. We use a rigorous and independent peer review process to select the most innovative research projects and training proposals to fund.
For more than 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
