Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

Merger of Cancer Research Organizations

Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation and The V Foundation are unique because they both support early career scientists and innovation and are committed to advancing research across all types of cancer. The two organizations are well-funded and provide critical grants for cancer research, but also believe they could do more if they merged into a single entity.  A portion of the costs associated with the exploration of a merger was provided by a grant from The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration.
