St. Baldrick's Foundation

St. Baldrick's Supportive Care Research Grants

Program Summary 

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a nonprofit organization raising funds for childhood cancer research. The foundation’s most well-known method of raising funds is through events at which volunteers’ heads are shaved bald in solidarity with children who often lose their hair during cancer treatment.
While the first event was held on St. Patrick’s Day in 2000, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation has existed since late 2004. In its first seven years the foundation has granted more than $100 million for childhood cancer research – more than $25 million in new grants in 2012 alone.
