NJCCR Childhood Cancer Research Fund

Mission Statement

The New Jersey Childhood Cancer Research Fund supports innovative research focusing on the causes, prevention, screening, treatment and cure of childhood cancer.

  • Every day 46 children are diagnosed with cancer in the United States.
  • Most children now can be cured if they are treated at childhood cancer treatment and research centers by teams of experts in childhood cancer.
  • Yet many types of childhood cancer have not yielded to research progress.
Meeting the Childhood Cancer Research Challenge in New Jersey
  • Make donations to the New Jersey Childhood Cancer Research Fund through a check-off box on your state income tax form and through Epay.
  • Donations support innovative childhood cancer research projects, training fellowships, and educational conferences.
Administration of the Fund
  • The Commission administers the Fund at no additional cost to the State.
  • Grants are awarded through a competitive scientific peer review process.
  • Research projects focus on the causes, prevention, screening, treatment or cure of prostate cancer and may include, but are not limited to, basic behavioral, clinical, demographic, epidemiological, and psychosocial research (P.L.83, C. 6, T52).
  • Grants assist researchers in obtaining additional funding from the federal government, foundations and private sources.
  • On average, for every dollar the NJCCR awards, more than ten dollars are returned to the state for continued research.
