About Us

Every Gift Counts

Private support powers research that brings new treatments — better treatments, curative treatments — to people grappling with disease.

While Fred Hutch ranks first among independent cancer centers in National Institutes of Health funding, government funding alone doesn't allow us to nimbly capitalize on the ever-accelerating pace of research or the bold ideas that grow out of our labs. Private support enables us to:

  • Support early, proof-of-concept studies our researchers can leverage into federal grants many times larger than the initial private investment.
  • Foster diversity and train the next generation of scientists.
  • Support faculty and seed the research of young and promising scientists.
  • Respond to unanticipated discoveries and fund urgent projects, such as breakthrough clinical trials.

Private financial support enables Fred Hutch to nimbly capitalize on the ever-accelerating pace of research or the bold ideas that grow out of our labs.

Every Donor, and Every Dollar, Matters

Fred Hutch is working relentlessly to deliver curative therapies for most if not all cancers by 2025. Private support plays an increasingly important role in this effort. We are grateful to our community of supporters because every gift to Fred Hutch, regardless of size or type, powers our research.

During our last fiscal year, Fred Hutch had more than 34,000 donors who provided gifts ranging from $5 to $15 million. The median gift size was $50. Together, donors contributed more than $61 million to advance our mission.
