MVPs are a determined team of V Foundation supporters committed to stopping cancer. People like you, who give what they can month after month until we achieve Victory Over Cancer®.

Join the Team!

Support Scientists. Bring Hope to Families. Save Lives.

We want our monthly donors to feel connected, engaged, and eager to share. Here is what you can expect as an MVP:


Making a Difference

As a monthly donor, 100% of your donation will go towards cancer research. Every. Single. Penny. Follow your dollar and see how we do it.

Your generosity will fund all-star scientists and the most promising projects in the nation. Your monthly support will provide more treatment options and improve survival rates. You will save lives.


Due to generous donors, the V Foundation has an endowment that covers administrative expenses. 


Continuing a Legacy

In his 1993 ESPY speech, Jim Valvano made a commitment to the fight of Victory Over Cancer®. His message was simple: cancer research needs our support. Jim was the first V Foundation MVP and his “Don’t Ever Give Up” spirit lives on in this special group of monthly donors. Our monthly donors define what it means to be a “Most Valuable Player” with their commitment to giving year-round. You can join this team today!
