$1 to $23
We’re proud to say that for every dollar donated to cancer research, Roswell Park is now able to leverage an additional $23 from external grants toward that research. This is thanks to the support of the Ride and the hard work of Roswell Park researchers.

Seed Funding for promising ideas
The world-class scientists at Roswell Park have new research ideas that could change the course of cancer treatment and lead to cancer cures. The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) awards donor funds to give the seed funding needed to investigate new ideas. Through a rigorous, competitive process, researchers apply for a grant and an internal, objective committee decides which projects receive funding. Projects reach all departments at Roswell Park and more than 500 studies have been funded in the last 30 years.
