Now in its 17th year, Swing Fore A Cure has collectively raised more than $4.3 million dollars; this premier golf tournament continues to help fund the life-saving work of the American Cancer Society and would not be possible without the generosity and support of our corporate sponsors, volunteer board members, donors, players, and partnering organizations. We invite you to partner with us in 2024 as we continue to fight for a cure.

Our Mission

Mission Funding: Research

As the only organization combating cancer through advocacy, discovery, and patient support, the American Cancer Society has made significant contributions to the fight against cancer over the last 110 years. We advocate for lifesaving policy changes, promote healthy lifestyles to help prevent cancer, and provide information, answers, and support to people in every community who have been touched by cancer. We also research cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatment.

Yet, there is still work to be done – which is why we are so glad you have chosen to partner with us. The American Cancer Society continues to work tirelessly to fund research and provide support for all types of cancer. And thanks to your generous support, we work to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer.
