We see a world without cancer

As pioneers in personalized cancer medicine, we continue to change the way the world understands and fights this disease. However, we cannot do this alone. We believe in partnering with local cancer advocacy groups and organizations. By awarding sponsorships for community events and creating initiatives to help improve the quality of life, we work to lessen the burden of cancer for patients, care-providers and their families.

We partner with local cancer advocacy groups and organizations

We review sponsorship requests on an ongoing basis throughout our fiscal year (July-June) and the types of requests accepted for consideration must be cancer focused, align with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute priorities and mission, and help underserved populations and/or engage diverse communities. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Community fundraising events (run/walks/rides)
  • Patient/survivor education conferences
  • Health fairs
  • Screenings and forums
