Corporate & Foundation Giving

Statement of Need: There are 16.9 million cancer survivors in the U.S. today. This number is expected to increase to 21.7 million by 2029 and most will face a wide range of potentially debilitating, life-threatening after effects from the treatments needed to save their lives.

The good news is we know healthy living choices are highly effective in neutralizing these effects. Programs of fitness, nutrition, mind-body health and community-building support are the way forward to a longer, stronger, happier life for cancer survivors, yet their needs are unmet. There are just not many programs for survivors after treatment is done. It is a hole in the healthcare system. Mission is filling it with approaches to cancer survivor wellness and resources that break the mold at every turn.

Grant support and corporate giving will help us continue to shift the paradigm for this underserved, exploding demographic.

Cause Marketing

We hear it all the time: Cancer touches nearly every­one. So perhaps it is no wonder that companies are jumping on board to take a stand against all that cancer would try to take away by supporting Mission programs through cause marketing programs throughout the year.

From shopping tie-ins to sales promotions to wellness events and more, the opportunities to leverage the broad impact of cancer to “do well by doing good” are varied and vast.
