Leadership Supporters

Grateful for Their Support!

WCRC is grateful for our Leadership Supporters – corporations and foundations that make a remarkable difference in supporting us as we work together to advance health equity for those in our communities facing cancer. They each give at extraordinary levels and we are so grateful for their dedication to working towards equitable access to cancer support and care.

Gilead

Gilead is dedicated to developing innovative medicines for life-threatening illnesses – and we recognize that it takes more than medicine to address challenges people and communities face. Due to social, environmental, and economic disparities, historically neglected and underrepresented communities are at increased risk of developing or dying from breast cancer. Toward Health Equity Oncology Grant™ (THE Oncology Grant) was created to address these health inequities.

Toward Health Equity Oncology Grant™ (THE Oncology Grant) is an annual initiative to catalyze innovative approaches to improve health equity across the cancer care continuum. We award grants through this program annually on Feb. 4, World Cancer Day. THE Oncology Grant seeks to build on existing data, fund programs with a health equity approach and meaningful involvement of the community, illuminate replicable models, and identify sustainable outcomes.
