Giving FOR Good
The Future of Roswell Society (FOR Society) is a community of young supporters between ages 25 and 40 who support research and patient care at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. We are the emerging generation of WNY philanthropists. We are FOR research, care, cures and hope. We all have a part to play in freeing the world of the fear, pain and loss due to cancer, and we are ready to make an impact.
FOR Giving Principles
Each FOR Society member has their own reasons for giving, but these are why we all give:
FOR Making a Real Impact
Some call it “not-for-profit” giving.
We think of it as “for purpose”.
Each year, we will select and fund one research project that will make a real impact on how cancer is prevented, diagnosed and treated.
We all have our reasons for giving.
We’ve done the research in selecting this year’s project, but you also have the option to direct your donation to a different area at Roswell Park that is important to you. Just select ‘other’ when you make your online donation.
In 2019, we are funding a research project to battle childhood brain cancer. This first-of-its-kind trial, led by Roswell Park’s Chair of Neurosurgery, Dr. Robert Fenstermaker, will study a vaccine to help children, teens, and young adults with medulloblastoma who have limited treatment options.
