Please help us to prevent skin cancer through education and advocacy by providing a tax-deductible donation. One hundred percent of donor gifts are used to teach skin cancer prevention to children and the people who care for them. Skin cancer prevention is the surest way to save lives, especially since one American is dying every 45 minutes from the disease. Please take a moment to touch a child and save a life today!

Targeted Gifts

Ilon studentsjpgMany people choose to honor a loved one by targeting donations in support of our SunAWARE For Life Program. Other families contact us directly to arrange a school program in their community to raise awareness and change behavior. In both situations, schools are selected that have a personal connection to the honoree or family member. Families help support our travel and teaching in their community by directing funds for this purpose. We cannot always accommodate these programs because of geography but we have provided both local targeted programs, as well as school events in New Jersey and New York.

One school trip to New York was actually for the whole school district. Pattie Day, a mother and teacher’s aide, arranged for us to bring our SunAWARE Program to her school system in honor of her late son, Jack. Maura Flynn, our SunAWARE Educator, traveled to New York and taught 2,000 students over two days in four schools about sun protection and skin cancer prevention. Mrs. Day not only arranged the program but shared Jack’s story of battling melanoma as a teenager and losing his life at 19 years of age. She said that her hope was that our SunAWARE Program would provide an important lesson to the children in her community.

Unrestricted Gifts

DaysTeachingGraph CMPF 2018Unrestricted gifts are provided via our annual appeal and by generous donations from friends, admirers, colleagues, and strangers. Our annual campaign targets previous givers but the Amazon Smile and Facebook directed donations provide anonymous gifts. Each year, these unrestricted gifts help us to expand our program. With your help, we were able to provide over 150 days of teaching last year teaching thousands of children and the people who care for them about sun protection and skin cancer prevention. Please consider a gift to our foundation knowing that 90% of your donation will go to mission related activities.

WhereWeTeach 2018Children’s Melanoma Prevention Foundation staff deliver their SunAWARE School Program to thousands of children and the people who care for them each year. The program is provided free of charge and costs, on average, about $2/student. These costs include teacher and administrative salaries, travel, handouts, etc. We believe in our delivery model that uses trained professionals rather than school personnel to provide our K-12 program. Each year we solicit school sponsors to help underwrite our program costs. Dozens of supporters pledge $500 each to support a SunAWARE School Program. These donors receive a detailed letter and photographs of our teaching. To learn more about sponsoring a school program write to This email address is being protected from spambots.
