Kure It Cancer Research

About Us

Kure It Cancer Research is a nonprofit dedicated to providing direct funding to support the brightest minds in translational research for underfunded cancers at leading cancer centers.

Cancer is a disease that afflicts millions of children and adults each year in the U.S. and worldwide. Kure It has raised over $10,000,000 towards cancer research and has funded 42 cancer research projects at 15 leading cancer institutions throughout the US and internationally.

In 2020 Kure It awarded $750,000 to leading Comprehensive Cancer Centers for underfunded cancer research grants.

In 2021 we plan to fund $1 million for cancer research, discovering new therapies, treatments, clinical trials, and other innovations, to save lives and to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their loved ones. Grow our Board of Directors to mirror the diversity of our community. Enhance our current partnerships and build new ones. Increase fundraising efforts from our community and expand awareness and corporate engagement in supporting our mission.

Kure It counts on volunteers to help fulfill our mission. We welcome volunteers who are looking for a meaningful experience, are passionate, inspired and want to make a difference in the fight to end cancer.

Kure It’s Women’s Guild supports the purpose and activities of Kure It through fundraising, awareness, and community outreach. Each member brings a unique and vital set of strengths to the group. Join us to have fun, give back, lead, make a difference and make new friends.

Since our inception, we have raised and awarded over $6,000,000 for competitive cancer research projects. This year, we have pledged and donated over $500,000 to the USC Norris and UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Centers (Los Angeles, CA) through our annual Rivals United for a Kure campaign. Our Rivals United grants prompt collaboration across institutions to ensure the sharing of breakthrough discoveries in working towards a cure.

We currently donate $0.89 per dollar contributed, but hope to increase that amount in the coming year. Through our strategic partnerships, impactful programming, and unique positioning, we are successful in raising awareness and urgency for support of breakthrough research.

...Because Every Cancer Deserves a Kure.
