Grants of $25,000 to USA and territories nonprofit organizations and government agencies for programs and projects addressing cancer prevention and early detection. Funding is intended to provide the resources needed to fund essential community-based activities in cancer prevention (including education or vaccination) or screening.

The mission of the Prevent Cancer Foundation is saving lives across all populations through cancer prevention and early detection. 

The goal is to provide the resources needed to fund vital community-level activities in cancer prevention (including education or vaccination) or screening. The proposed projects must be aligned with our mission to support community projects or programs across the United States (including tribes and territories) that focus on helping to prevent cancer or find it earlier and that demonstrate a potential to make a positive impact in communities that are underserved and/or disproportionately impacted.

2022 Focus on LGBTQ+ communities

For the 2022 cycle, applications focused on providing cancer prevention education, outreach and screening in LGBTQ+ communities. Eligible applications may be related to education and screening for breast/chest, cervical, colorectal, anal or lung cancer, or education and vaccination preventing liver cancer or HPV-related cancers. Projects focused on skin cancer prevention and education, as well as tobacco cessation and education for people in LGBTQ+ communities are also welcome. Applicant groups should describe how they are specifically working with people in the LGBTQ+ community to address health-related disparities and barriers in this population. Involvement of community advisory boards is encouraged.

Examples of eligible projects for the 2022 grants cycle:

  • Projects focused on educating people in the LGBTQ+ community on screening recommendations for breast/chest, cervical, colorectal or lung cancer
  • Utilization of community advisory boards to develop materials to raise awareness and increase cancer screenings and vaccination among people in the LGBTQ+ community.
  • Provider trainings for effective cancer prevention and early detection outreach
  • Vaccination projects for people in the LGBTQ+ community for HPV or hepatitis B or testing or education projects (with referrals) for hepatitis B or hepatitis C. Projects on HPV vaccination can also include education on HPV-related cancers and risks.
  • Other projects focused on education about sun safety and skin cancer, as well as risk reduction involving tobacco cessation in LGBTQ+ communities.
