I write to you today because GRACE absolutely needs your help.
We are facing a new financial reality of receiving fewer funds through corporate grants. We are looking at every option available, and making the necessary changes, to ensure that GRACE can continue to help cancer patients and caregivers whose lives have been extended or made better because of the information GRACE provided - that helped them get the care they needed.
Besides trimming costs where we can, we are developing new partnerships that will enable us to create more content for patients, alongside partners who produce content for medical professionals. This novel approach, as well as a campaign to build web pages that aggregate our best content about specific subjects in one place for patients, promises to lead us to a position in which our financial future should be much more secure. But we need critical support from you to get us through.
GRACE offers unique and groundbreaking insight. But being different creates challenges. We are a non-profit that isn’t about fun runs or galas and we don’t fit into the categories consistently supported by companies and charitable foundations. GRACE delivers the content that ensures patients around the world, though primarily in North America, understand and can benefit from the best treatments available.
The GRACE Board of Directors, myself included, has pledged our contributions because we believe that there is no other organization doing what GRACE does. We know that people around the world value our efforts, but we need to convert that value and appreciation into gifts that enable GRACE to survive and continue to make an impact.
Please consider providing a tax-deductible gift this year; we wholeheartedly need your help to ensure that GRACE continues. We don’t campaign for funds throughout the year but we need this appeal to succeed. Your support, now more than ever, will continue to provide the best information about cancer arguably available anywhere, for patients and caregivers who so desperately need it.
Please support GRACE.
