ACS CAN Corporate Membership Program

ACS CAN is a unique organization working with partners to energize thousands of advocates committed to making the fight against cancer a higher priority among our elected leaders at all levels of government. ACS CAN is building a volunteer movement in every community in America, empowering ordinary people to wield extraordinary power in this fight. We believe that if one person can battle cancer, then an entire nation can rise up to defeat it. With the help of partners, volunteers, and generous donors, we are prepared to engage in this fight for as long as it takes to defeat this terrible disease.

Corporate partnerships are critical to the success of our work. We look forward to building mutually beneficial, ongoing relationships that continue to leverage our mutual strengths and provide strong benefits to all. To that end, we have developed four levels of corporate membership which are detailed below.

If you have questions about our program, or if your company is interested in joining us in this fight, please contact Pam Traxel at or (202) 661-5740.
