Our Goals

Funding Care. Funding Hope.

The over-arching goal of the Wichita Cancer Foundation is to ensure that all patients receiving and or needing cancer care in Sedgwick County have the health insurance necessary to access the care they need.

To meet this goal, the Foundation’s Board of Directors has taken steps to raise awareness, to simplify the assistance process, and to raise funds.

Awareness: We all know a friend or family member who is being touched by the life-altering affects of a cancer diagnosis. We want individuals needing our help to be aware of the organization and how to apply for assistance. Please share the word that WCF is here to help raise financial assistance for cancer patients.

Assistance: We want to help! In an effort to meet this goal, we launched our website to make the application process as simple as possible.

Funding: We need teammates in this effort. If you are in a position to give back—to help others in our community who are in need, please donate now. Fundraising is necessary to help us assist as many applicants as possible.  We run solely off of donations and are a fully qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organization such that all donations are tax deductible.
