Frequently Asked Questions

What does my donation support?

When you support Cookies for Kids' Cancer, be assured you are making a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. The funds you raise are granted to five of the nation's leading pediatric cancer centers to support development of safer, more effective cancer treatments.

As of 2013, a portion of funds raised is used to match the federal allowance per child enrolled in the Children's Oncology Group's Phase I & Pilot Consortium, consisting of 21 research hospitals nationwide. In doing so, more children have access to treatments they otherwise would not have been able to receive.

Do you have local chapters?

Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a national non-profit foundation headquartered in Califon, N.J. Our fundraising focus is on individual grassroots efforts from coast to coast, rather than a handful of local chapters.
