If you’re looking for a simple way to raise money in honor of your child or loved one, without the red tape and bureaucracy of setting up your own foundation, a St. Baldrick’s Hero Fund may be the right choice for you.

With the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you can get your fundraising started right away, without the hassle of attracting a board of directors, creating your own website, developing a grant-making structure, and managing the accounting and finances. And you can be assured that the money you raise will fund the best childhood cancer research.

Why the St. Baldrick’s Foundation?

We’re guided by a Scientific Advisory Committee, comprised of leading experts in the childhood cancer community, who help the Foundation set research funding priorities so that every dollar makes the greatest impact possible.

We take great care with every donor dollar, keeping the staff small, the expenses low and directing every possible dollar to childhood cancer research. Take a careful look at the expenses and see for yourself!

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation has online fundraising tools that are second to none! You can take advantage of this growing online toolbox to reach your community and raise critical funds for childhood cancer research.

Your Hero Fund is yours to create.

A Fund can be as simple as an ongoing way for friends, family members or groups to donate or raise funds to honor a loved one. Or it can be as dynamic as a year–round schedule of fundraising activities with an ambitious goal.

It’s up to you.
