Auburn Community Cancer Endowment Fund

 A Community Effort to fight Cancer

WE ARE ALMOST THERE!!  What seemed impossible is now within reach.  With the generosity of our community and the giving spirit at the Holiday Dinner and Celebration, we should reach our $3M Goal by December 3.  This includes the planned giving commitments as well as the ACCEF.

The Auburn Community Cancer Endowment Fund (ACCEF) was founded in 2001 by a group of concerned Auburn Area Citizens who wanted to make a difference in the fight against cancer.  UC Davis Cancer Center was chosen as the partner they would work with.  After many fundraisers including dinners, golf tournaments, fun runs, 24 hour mountain bike races, the goal of $1.5M was met in 2007.  The ACCEF funds a basic science chair at UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center.  We continue to grow the fund in order to make a bigger difference in "the fight". 

Our goal is and will continue to be to advance cancer research by providing a conduit for donations from the private and business sectors of Auburn and the surrounding areas.  Please join us at one of our fundraisers or donate online to support ACCEF.
