In 2005, a 17-year-old boy named William was fighting a brain tumor for the second time in two years. Rally Founder and CEO Dean Crowe asked a simple question, “What can I do to help? And I will not make you dinner. This situation is so past dinner.” William’s mother replied, “Raise money for childhood cancer research and fund the best research wherever it may be.”

The mission of Rally was born that day, and since that question was asked, Rally has awarded $25.4 million in childhood cancer research grants across the country and around the world.

Our Mission

Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, empowers volunteers across the country to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures.

We are philanthropic seed investors in the next great discovery and utilize a dual peer review process that supports research at all stages, from the initial idea to clinical trials. With the highest ratings from charity watchdogs, you know you are donating to a nonprofit children’s cancer organization for better childhood cancer treatments.

Now, We Hear You Asking “What Can I Do To Help?”

We are so glad you asked. Here’s how you can get involved.
