The Conquer Cancer Foundation of ASCO (CCF)—ASCO’s philanthropic affiliate—raises funds in support of ASCO and CCF programs. This includes a grants program that is run and operated by CCF.
A list of donations and support pledged to CCF in 2016 is available. The following are explanatory notes:
- The list includes support pledged between January 1, 2016, and December 31, 2016, and is based on the best information available at the time of posting. (Note that donations pledged in 2016 may not be received until 2017; for this reason, the information in this list may not match information provided by donors and supporters, or financial reports published in the ASCO or CCF 2016 Annual Reports.)
- Support is pledged for the specific ASCO or CCF program indicated in the list, or for "general mission support." General mission support includes donations to CCF’s Mission Endowment Program, and donations that are not designated for a specific program but are used to advance ASCO and CCF's key mission activities.
- Donations made to CCF in support of its grants program are distributed by CCF to grantees.
- Donations to CCF for ASCO programs represent only a portion of ASCO’s total revenues.
ASCO first adopted its conflict of interest policy in 1994, and has adopted rigorous procedures to ensure independence in the development of its programs and advocacy positions. For more information, see: ASCO Conflict of Interest Policy Summary.
In April 2010, ASCO signed on to the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS) Code for Interactions with Companies, which calls for societies and affiliated foundations to disclose donations and support received from companies in the for-profit health care sector.
