2013 Grants
Cookies for Kids' Cancer provides annual research grants to five leading pediatric cancer centers, including St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Texas Children's Cancer Center and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Our focus is on advancing the development of less toxic, more effective treatments for children with cancer.

Our medical advisory board carefully reviews each grant request, and provides their recommendations of the projects most likely to result in promising treatments advancing to clinical trial as quickly as possible, where they can begin helping children fighting cancer. 

This year, we are proud to announce grants totaling $1.5 million, bringing our total amount granted to $5 million in just a few short years. 

A portion of funds raised also matches the federal government allowance for every child enrolled in a phase 1 clinical trial in the Children's Oncology Group's Phase I Trial Consortium. Currently, there are 21 hospitals nationwide within this group.
