Cancer for College is driven to provide a more personal relationship with our scholars beyond granting a scholarship.  To deliver this, we have built educational programming that enables our scholars to interact with board members, donors, professionals and other scholars as they work toward their educational goals.  

  • Monthly Personal Conversations with Board & Donors facilitated by CFC Staff.
  • Quarterly Educational Experiences
  • Annual Summer Camp​

​How can you make a difference in the life of a cancer survivor?

  • Share your expertise with the next generation of doctors, lawyers, nurses, social workers, teachers, accountants, engineers etc. Invest in the next generation. We provide the motivated scholars and your share your experience and resources for something as simple as a hosted lunch meeting.
  • Want to make a deeper commitment to helping these scholars thrive?  Host an educational event at your business or serve as a featured speaker at one of our special educational events.  Sharing your experiences is incredibly valuable to our scholars.
  • Why help our scholars? Our scholars are highly motivated to make a difference in the world. They are an impactful place to invest your time and resources.
  •  The relationships formed between our scholars and the people who are moved to support Cancer for College create a bond that lasts beyond a scholarship. These experiences can make a lifelong impact on the scholar as they work their way toward their degree and ultimately transition from student to the professional work force. 

See first hand the impact your guidance and support will have on a scholarship recipient’s life. Make a meaningful impact in the life of a cancer survivor.

As part of THE CFC INSPIRE PROJECT, Cancer for College has implemented monthly meet ups between scholars, board members and donors.

We call these meet ups CFC IMPACT. It’s an opportunity to learn more about the needs of the scholar, provide professional mentorship and share wisdom to positively impact their future.

The program also exposes new donors to our scholars and the services we provide.

The second part of THE CFC INSPIRE PROJECT, involves quarterly educational events that we call CFC LEARN.

A small group of recipients is gathered for an educational experience and discussion designed to expose them to professionals working in a field that is of interest to the scholar.

This experience also exposes potential donors to our scholars and forms a more personal bond.


The final component of THE CFC INSPIRE PROJECT is our new camp experience we call CAMP THRIVE.

This is a multi-day event featuring educational experiences, field trips and guest speakers brought in to talk about potential career paths and the transition from college to the workforce.  We also plan to include health related topics including nutrition, physical fitness, mental health and more. We will kick this off with 10-12 scholars attending a camp in summer of 2019.
