If you’re reading this article, you might be thinking that a foundation is a charitable organization that gives away money to charities, which is not exactly a new idea.
In fact, it’s been around since the beginning of the 20th century.
But it’s gotten a bit of a bad rap.
In 2015, the California legislature passed legislation that allows for tax-exempt foundations to make donations to charities.
But that doesn’t mean they can’t make contributions to cancer research, and that’s exactly what the Arizonans Community Foundation did in 2017.
According to the foundation’s website, it “is a non-profit organization which supports research on the causes of cancer, the treatment of cancer and the prevention of cancer.”
Here are some of the benefits the foundation is offering to the community: • The foundation will match grants made by the California Department of Public Health, the state’s health insurance agency, to the Arizona Cancer Foundation.
The money will be used to support research on cancer, diagnosis and treatment, prevention and diagnosis of cancer.
• The Arizona Cancer Community Foundation will also match grants from the Arizona Department of Human Services, which provide assistance to Arizona families, businesses and organizations with cancer, especially those living in underserved areas.
• Fundraising efforts will be conducted by the foundation in partnership with Arizona Cancer Advocates, a nonprofit group of local leaders who advocate for community cancer programs and other community needs.
• In addition to providing support to Arizona communities, the foundation will work with Arizonas largest employers, including the Arizabell Corporation, which employs nearly 4,000 Arizonians.
The foundation is also working with Arizona Department on Aging to fund and provide cancer-related services to the state.
The Arizona Foundation for Cancer Research has received funding from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Howard University Medical Center.
