About Our Foundation


The Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation (JCCF) was founded in 1945 by a group of volunteers dedicated to cancer research at UCLA. Their idea, using funds raised from private sources to invest in the work of promising young cancer researchers, resulted in the Seed Grant Program, which has helped the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center break new ground in the quest to defeat cancer.

Although seed grants remain an important part of our mission, the Foundation today also supports numerous high-priority and multi-disciplinary cancer research efforts focused on rapidly translating discoveries made in the laboratory into improved screening, treatment and prevention.

We spend 90 percent of total donations directly on cancer research and cancer-related programs. The remaining 10 percent goes toward administrative and fundraising expenses. Donors to JCCF can feel confident their gifts benefit the research that has consistently made the Jonsson Cancer Center a leader in its field.
