An Investment in Philanthropic Success.

NACCDO brings together professionals from all facets of cancer center fundraising to discuss challenges of our organizations, connect with leaders of our industry, learn from each other’s successes and ultimately make meaningful contributions to the national fight against cancer.

As a member, your organization will benefit from access to peer institutions and their best practices, representation among leading cancer research institutions and ongoing opportunity to refine, grow and elevate your development program.

When your organization joins, member benefits are shared among the whole team!  As a development professional, you will have the opportunity to establish and foster valuable peer and mentor relationships, gain insight into the cancer-based fundraising industry and share your success and experiences with members across the country.

Eligibility: Membership in NACCDO is open to all NCI-designated and/or NCI-funded cancer centers, and member benefits are shared by member center development professionals. Institutions applying for membership or renewal will be required to document current NCI funding. Foundations that exist solely to support qualifying NCI-funded institutions qualify for membership.
