Do you represent a company searching for a good cause to support?
MAC is a coalition of small foundations with little or no paid staff and minimal overhead costs. The money we raise goes directly to the research facilities we support and the education/awareness work we do, not to administrative expenses. Our individual budgets are modest but collectively we raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. We are searching for a sponsor to work with us on a national awareness/fundraising campaign during Melanoma Awareness Month next May.
While the incidence of most other cancers is decreasing, the incidence of melanoma in the U.S. has tripled over the last 35 years. One person is diagnosed with melanoma in this country every seven minutes, and one person dies from melanoma each hour. The rising tide of skin cancer and melanoma cases has reached such proportions that in July, 2014 the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the Surgeon General's Call to Action to Prevent Skin Cancer. Researchers have made great strides toward finding effective treatments for melanoma in recent years but there is still much more to do. We need dollars to raise awareness, provide sun safety education, and fund the research that will ultimately lead to a cure.
Join with us to develop a creative campaign that will raise awareness and dollars while branding you company as a sun safety advocate. Interested? Contact Neil Spiegler.
