Friends funding is unique for four reasons:

  • Every dollar we raise is allocated to a specific project or program at the Institute through a competitive grant process.
  • We support promising early-stage research, young investigators, and patient care projects that might not otherwise receive funding.
  • Friends prioritize projects with the potential to leverage our small grants into something much larger or programs that benefit multiple labs or departments.
  • Donors of $1,000 or more can designate their contributions to a specific researcher, disease, or department at Dana-Farber through a special fund in their names or in the name of a loved one.

Your gift to the Friends supports patients today and changes the course of cancer treatment for tomorrow. For questions or more information, contact the Friends at or 617-632-3909.
