Apply For Blood Cancer Grant

The William G. Pomeroy Foundation makes grants to 501(c)(3) organizations, nonprofit educational institutions and local, state and federal government entities to work toward improving the probability of finding appropriate donor matches or other life-saving treatments for blood cancer patients.

We are proud to support the work of many great organizations who share in our passion to help save lives.  Below are some examples:

  • we established two funds at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute which focus on AML research and stem cell transplant research;
  • we support many health-related initiatives at Crouse Hospital in Syracuse, NY, including annual scholarships for the Pomeroy College of Nursing;
  • we sponsor the Blood & Marrow Transplant Information Network’s (BMT InfoNet) highly acclaimed Celebrating a Second Chance at Life Survivorship Symposium;
  • and, in addition to supporting bone marrow registration drives, we support and work closely with Be The Match® operated by the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP) – the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world

In addition to these programs, our Foundation will consider applications from other qualified organizations with similar missions to help diversify bone marrow registries.

All grant requests must be submitted through our online application portal.
