Company Description

Every day, 53 Albertans hear the words “you have cancer”. Our client, The Alberta Cancer Foundation aims to make a difference today, for every Albertan that is affected by these three words.

Like their donors, they are impatient. They are pushing forward for faster results that will improve the lives of 53 Albertans today and for every coming day until they achieve their vision of a cancer-free Alberta.

This vision is bold. To realize it, they have to do things differently. They take a strategic approach to investing donor dollars, toward initiatives and programs that will lead to:

  • Research and programs that have a clear impact for patients
  • Earlier detection
  • Improved treatments and an enhanced quality of life

Unlike any other philanthropic organization in Alberta, they only invest in ideas that will deliver results to cancer patients. As the fundraising partner for all of Alberta’s cancer centres (17), including the Cross-Cancer Institute in Edmonton and the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary. The Alberta Cancer Foundation ensures that their investments directly support cancer patients.

They know that collaboration will speed up the rate of progress. They bring donors, patients, health care providers and researchers together; so that they may work together in reaching their goals, that alone would be unreachable.

Their mission is to make Alberta the leader in cancer prevention research and care. Their vision is a cancer-free future. They strive to be one of the most innovative philanthropic organizations in Canada. They achieve this by delivering transformational results for those waging the war against cancer, and their families. Strategic priorities drive their organization as they continue to push for change.

Role:  They are the official fundraiser for all Alberta cancer centres.

Mission:  Making life better for Albertans facing cancer.
