News Story

May 18 was our first-ever #ACSGivingDay

A day to rally together for a world free from cancer.

The first-ever American Cancer Society Giving Day brought our community together for one big day to celebrate all that we’ve accomplished and raise funds to lead the fight for a world without cancer. We have raised more than $700,000 and money is still coming in.

These funds will help get cancer research back on track, encourage more people to get cancer screenings that were delayed by the pandemic, and support our efforts to improve health equity in cancer care.

Here are 3 ways to get involved: It's not too late!

GIVE: At the beginning of the pandemic, cancer screening rates dropped by nearly 90%. Your gift helps encourage more people to get life-saving screenings and supports cancer research, education, advocacy, and services.

SHARE: The most compelling way to encourage others to give is by sharing your personal experiences with cancer and why you support the American Cancer Society. Use our social media toolkit for easy ways to share! 

REPRESENT: Download a social media frame to show everyone that you support a cancer-free future! Thank you for being a part of our Giving Day.
