As part of its mandate, CancerCare Manitoba Foundation has a responsibility to its donors to distribute funds to CancerCare Manitoba in a prudent and responsible manner. All grant requests must meet the guidelines, principles and timelines set out by CancerCare Manitoba Foundation to meet eligibility requirements.
Annually the Board, through the Projects, Grants & Awards Committee, considers peer-reviewed research and program proposals submitted by CCMB which align with its strategic plan. Funding requests are thoughtfully reviewed and recommended for approval.
For the fiscal year 2019-2020, the Foundation invested $7.104 million in strategic projects for CancerCare Manitoba.
Examples of key projects funded this past year include Core Operating Budget for CancerCare Manitoba’s Research Institute, Research Operating Grants, Adult and Pediatric Clinical Trials Unit, Patient and Family Resource Centre, Lynch Syndrome Clinic, Guardian Angel Caring Room, Breast & Gyne Cancer Centre of Hope, Prevention, Risk Reduction & Awareness and Manitoba Teens Living with Cancer.
This fiscal year 2020 – 2021, the Foundation has committed $8.61 million to support CancerCare Manitoba.
