Golfers Against Cancer Inc.
GAC and the Dinners for Cancer Research have a vision where our friends and family never worry again about cancer. As we finalize our 2006 efforts, we are approaching $13 million raised since 1997, including matching funds and after all expenses to fund specific cancer research projects that lead to saving lives. Our funding has led to "proof of concept" cancer research - resulting in 10 to 1 and sometimes 100 to 1 funding from the National Cancer Institute, and the National Institute of Health and other governmental sources as a result of our seed funds. GAC focuses on specific projects with measurable results in an expected timeframe. Beneficiaries are required to stipulate GAC funds do not go to administrative expenses. In addition, beneficiaries and specific projects which provide matching funds to leverage our investment receive special consideration. Through our interaction with the beneficiaries and seeing what the combination of money and research can do, we know that our vision is reachable. Our mission is to raise as much money as possible to fund promising cancer research projects that result in savings lives. We are dedicated to raising these funds as an all-volunteer organization where virtually all of our fund-raising efforts go directly to benefit cancer research versus administrative costs.
