Grant Program

Giving Back 

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance to individuals and their families while they wage their battle against cancer. With the combined strength of The Hawthorne Cancer Foundation and The Hawthorne Cancer Center located at Johnston-Willis Campus within the Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute, we are able to assist cancer patients in a variety of ways through financial and emotional support.

Grant Program
Financial Support

Our Mission is simple…we raise money and give 100% of it to cancer patients and their families.

The Hawthorne Cancer Foundation, in cooperation with our Hawthorne Cancer Resource Center, exists to lessen the financial and emotional burden of cancer.

  • We provide financial resources to support cancer patients and their families. This assistance is provided for patients currently undergoing or recently undergoing cancer treatment throughout the Richmond Metropolitan area.

  • Grant nominations are reviewed on a monthly basis and are accepted from patients’ doctors and/or social workers. We refer to these individuals as Advocates.

  • As the burden of fighting cancer can have a devastating financial impact on patients and their families, grant funds may be used for a wide range of needs including food, shelter, transportation, and other living expenses.  The only restriction is that the funds not be used for medical bills.

  • Our goal is to establish and maintain the means for donations to this Fund, as well as matching grants from companies, organizations, and foundations to be tax-deductible.
