COMMUNITY IMPACT PROJECT

The votes are in. Find out where 2013 funding will go.

Since 2008, hundreds of qualified hospitals, cancer centers and community organizations have applied to implement one of ten Model Programs. In 2013, we replicated Advanced Certification for Palliative Care, Camp Kesem, Creative Center at University Settlement and LIVESTRONG at the YMCA. Your votes decided where we funded programs.
