Not a moment to lose


Jim Valvano was never one to shy away from a goal—and his first step to achieving them was to write them down. Since Jim knew a thing or two about achieving goals, we’re taking a page from his playbook and writing down one of our own.

The V Foundation is committed to raising $200 million dollars from campaign launch in 2013 until the year 2020.

“There are 86,400 seconds in a day. It’s up to you to decide what to do with them.”

Not a Moment to Lose. Since our founding in 1993, the V Foundation has already awarded more than $260 million to cancer research. While this amount is extraordinary, there is still so much work to be done.

Not a Moment to Lose is propelled by a true sense of urgency. We believe we must accelerate research if we want to achieve victory over cancer. We have momentum. There are more than 16 million cancer survivors today. Survival rates for many cancers continue to increase. New technology and a better understanding of genetics have allowed us to individualize therapies, leading to personalized treatments and more success.

Let’s build on this momentum. We must keep progressing. More funding means more research. More research means more lives saved. Join us in our campaign to raise $200 million by 2020 and donate today. There is truly Not a Moment to Lose.
