Making A Difference

Sharing Courage, Hope and Strength

With more than $2.6 Million in grants awarded to patients, the Atlanta Cancer Care Foundation has been making a difference in our community since 2001.

Every year, the Atlanta Cancer Care Foundation (ACCF) provides critical financial assistance to Metro Atlanta cancer patients that need help dealing with the often overwhelming costs associated with the disease and its treatment.

ACCF grants help patients who are facing unbearable choices: Prevent eviction, or finish the next round of chemotherapy? Buy groceries for the family, or prescriptions for the patient? Keep the electricity on, or make sure there’s enough gas in the car to get to the next appointment?

More than just a financial boost, ACCF grants remind patients and their families that they are not alone, and that a community of individuals, foundations and corporations are reaching out to share Courage, Hope and Strength that they need to fight the disease.

In 2022, ACCF provided over $320,000 in assistance to more than 1,000 metro Atlanta cancer patients, referred to the Foundation by 31 different providers.

In the Past 18 Months...

Donations to ACCF help grantees meet their most basic needs—food for their children, utility payments, and even their medical co-pays.
