The Colorado Cancer Fund is a voluntary check-off program on the Colorado State Income Tax Form. The goal of the Colorado Cancer Fund is to help reduce mortality from cancer by improving early detection and expanding existing education, screening and quality of life services throughout Colorado for populations who are currently underserved.
The Fund was developed by advocates who are passionate about preventing uninsured and underinsured people from falling through the cracks in the social safety net. The Colorado Cancer Fund evolved from the former Breast and Women’s Reproductive Cancers Fund.
The Colorado Cancer Fund addresses the significant screening and survivorship needs for Coloradans impacted by cancer. The intention of the Colorado Cancer Fund is to complement, not duplicate, current services.
The Colorado Cancer Fund revenues are distributed via a competitive grants program. The next grant cycle will be open in the fall of 2017.
