Why GivingTuesday matters
The Colorectal Cancer Alliance is 100% donor-funded. From our patient support services to screening awareness initiatives, everything we do at the Alliance is made possible by the generosity of our donors. GivingTuesday is a critical moment to raise support for patients, survivors, caregivers, and family members affected by colorectal cancer. Every dollar donated now through GivingTuesday is matched 100% by the Twila Sampson Family Foundation, doubling your impact.
So far this year, we have delivered 30,000 screening recommendations through our one-of-a-kind screening quiz. High-risk individuals are connected with certified patient navigators. Last year, 15,000 people were screened through Alliance initiatives.
Through our free Helpline, we have connected with nearly 17,000 patients, caregivers, and family members in 2023 and helped them navigate colorectal cancer. Our launch of BlueHQ earlier this year also connected thousands with personalized support.
We have invested more than $5 million in research since 2016. Our new initiative, Project Cure CRC, reignites our effort to fund tens of millions of dollars in expedited, novel colorectal cancer research over the next two years.
What is GivingTuesday?
November 28 is GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. At the Alliance, it’s one day to make a huge difference in the lives of patients, survivors, and caregivers across the country — while also funding work to prevent colorectal cancer in the first place.

How will my GivingTuesday action help allies?
Over the last 24 years, the Alliance has served more than 2 million patients and caregivers impacted by this disease. We’re counting on funds raised during GivingTuesday to continue to provide the programs colorectal cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers need now.
