Where the Money GoesThe weekend of The Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic is filled with fun and laughter, but each person involved shares the awareness of the immediate goal of the weekend—to raise money for cancer research.
In just 19 years, the Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic has donated nearly $15 Million to The V Foundation for Cancer Research.
The V Foundation then uses that donation to seek out promising young scientists from the finest research facilities across the country who need early developmental, critical-stage grant support. These V Scholars are the backbone of our research team. Additionally, the V Foundation-AACR Grants in Translational Cancer Research Program advances research further, preparing to take it from the laboratories, and bridge into clinics and the hands of doctors treating patients. Finally, the Designated Grant Program aims specific monies toward specialized cancer interests, or perhaps to a precise geographical area, often the same as where the funding was generated.
The V Foundation awards 100 percent of all new, direct cash donations and net proceeds of events directly to cancer research and related programs.
What does the future bring?
Research to improve quality of life, extend remission, and bring undiminished hope to the lives of cancer survivors. We must continue to fund essential research that will ultimately identify the causes and develop the cures to eliminate this disease.
