Supporting the Fight Against Cancer
CVS Health understands how important it is to attack cancer from every angle. That’s why we’ve pledged to raise a minimum of $10 million for the American Cancer Society® over the next three years. The money raised will fund programs that support cancer patients and breakthrough research with a focus on reducing smoking and tobacco use. Donate today.
The campaign kicks off with in-store fundraising from August 5-25, 2018, giving CVS Pharmacy customers the opportunity to donate at the registers of 8,000 locations nationwide.
In addition to in-store fundraising, CVS Health and American Cancer Society® are working together to identify opportunities along a patient’s cancer journey to increase access to health products and services along the way. Beginning in August 2018, CVS Health is the official pharmacy retailer of American Cancer Society®.
A Long-Standing Partnership
The CVS Health Foundation and American Cancer Society® partnered in 2016 to deliver more than $3.5 million in grants to 125 institutions of higher learning to help accelerate and expand the number of 100 percent smoke- and tobacco-free college and university campuses throughout the United States. The grants help institutions take a comprehensive approach to implement tobacco-free campus policies, including cessation, education and support services for students.
The partnership created the Tobacco-Free Generation Campus Initiative, part of Be The First, CVS Health’s five-year, $50 million initiative that supports education, advocacy, tobacco control and healthy behavior programming.
