Where does the money go that is raised at Taste of Hope?

Taste of Hope donations will support the mission of the American Cancer Society as we save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

The American Cancer Society is the largest private funder of cancer research in the United States, with more than $3.9 billion invested in the search for new cures. Research funded by the Society has laid the groundwork for virtually every major breakthrough in cancer prevention, detection and treatment seen in the last six decades. When we began, only a quarter of all cancer patients achieved 5-year survival. Today, more than 2 in 3 will reach this milestone. Through the years, 47 scientists funded by the Society have earned the Nobel Prize for their findings.

Will I receive a receipt for my tax records?

If you mail in your donation, the American Cancer Society will send you a receipt for your tax records, approximately six weeks after payment is received. If you make a donation online using your credit card, you will be directed to a confirmation page that can be printed for your tax records. In addition, an email will be sent to you that includes a receipt that can be printed for your records.


About the American Cancer Society...


The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, volunteer-driven health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives from cancer, and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service.

Founded in 1913, the Society is the most experienced and largest non-profit cancer-fighting organization in the world. It consists of a National Home Office located in Atlanta, Georgia and chartered divisions throughout the country comprised of more than 3,400 community offices. More than two million Society volunteers work to conquer cancer. All services and programs are free to the public. Information can be found 24-hours-a-day at www.cancer.org or 

1-800-227-2345. The Society's major programs are:

RESEARCH -The Society is the largest source of private, non-profit cancer research funds in the U.S., second only to the federal government in total dollars spent. To date, the Society has invested more than $3 billion in cancer research in the form of grants, and funded 46 Nobel Laureates early on in their careers, when there were few funding sources available to them.

CANCER EARLY DETECTION & TREATMENT - Activities at the local, state and national level take place daily that have a positive impact on the entire spectrum of prevention, early detection, effective treatment, survival and quality of life related to cancer. To that end, the organization conducts campaigns focusing on breast cancer, tobacco control, nutrition and exercise, colon cancer and prostate cancer. For example, the American Cancer Society:

• Partners with the State Department of Health Services to educate more than 900,000 fourth- and fifth-graders about developing good nutrition and exercise habits for a long and healthy life.
• Established community forums to educate the public on cancer issues and the importance of early detection.
• Works with CDC on HPV Vaccination meant to prevent Cervical Cancer

PATIENT SERVICES - The organization and its volunteers offer emotional support and practical help to patients, their families, their care givers and their community from the time of diagnosis throughout life to life's end. Some of these services include:

• Patient transportation to and from treatments
• Partner with Community Groups to further ACS Mission and Services
• Programs specifically designed to help breast cancer patients through diagnosis and treatment reach to recovery.
• These programs use trained volunteers/survivors.
• An online Cancer Survivors' Network


 Cancer is a political as well as a medical, social, psychological and economic issue. To positively impact cancer-related decisions made by government policy-makers daily, the Society strives to influence public policies at all levels, with special emphasis on laws or regulations relating to tobacco, healthcare access, increased Federal research funding, the rights of cancer patients and survivors, and dissemination of cancer prevention information.
