Funding Breakthroughs

Leading the way to a world without cancer

Our Results

The H Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure.

With your continued support we’ve broken our previous fundraising records, including over $850,000 in 2019 alone, to help find a cure for cancer.

All proceeds benefit basic science cancer research, supporting the early, novel ideas that then lead to additional grants.

The money we raised has resulted in over $115 million in additional research funding.


One of our first H Foundation Grants helped establish a new area of science, coined “Oncofertility”, which helps young people preserve their fertility before undergoing cancer treatment.

“The H Foundation continues to help us provide critical funding and has had an extraordinary impact on ground-breaking research to develop more effective approaches for cancer prevention, detection, and treatment.”

In partnership with the Basic Science Research Division of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, our funding has established The H Foundation and Northwestern Basic Science and Cancer Therapeutics Pipeline. This has led to seeding the discovery of new cancer drugs and early stage diagnostics. There are currently 25 compounds in the pipeline, targeting a number of cancers.
