What will my
fundraising support?

Expect Miracles Foundation (EMF) rallies the financial services industry and beyond to invest in life-saving cancer research while advancing the financial and emotional health of people impacted by cancer.

Unlike many nonprofits, Expect Miracles Foundation's work in the cancer community is two-fold: an investment in life-saving research, and an investment in financial support for those facing financial burden of cancer. The combination provides hope at every stage of the journey.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, 100% of all participant-raised dollars support EMF's portfolio of funds:
  • Discovery Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
  • Innovation Fund at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
  • SAMFund which provides financial assistance to young adult cancer survivors
