    MCW Cancer Center Board

    The MCW Cancer Center Board helps to raise awareness of the MCW Cancer Center and private funding for research. The Board includes top business, professional and civic leaders. The money they contribute and raise is more important than ever before as competition increases for federal grant support. 

    The fund-raising efforts of Advisory Board members have supported:

    • Seed funding, which allows researchers to develop a track record to compete for and leverage long-term federal funds. Seed funds have led to and will continue to lead to larger federal or private agency grants that have the potential to result in breakthrough treatments and cures for disease.
    • Bridge funding for researchers while they renew grants.
    • Fellowships for research or clinical training.
    • Professorships
    • Purchase of research equipment.
