About The National Children's Cancer Society (NCCS)

THE NATIONAL CHILDREN'S CANCER SOCIETY PROGRAM

The National Children's Cancer Society (NCCS) is a 501C(3) nonprofit organization that is proud to meet all the Better Business Bureau's "Standards of Charity Accountability" which includes a comprehensive, in-depth evaluation of charity governance, fundraising, practices, solicitations, and informational materials.

The NCCS is proud to have distributed more than $62 million in direct financial assistance to the families of more than 38,000 children in the United States alone.

The NCCS is dedicated to helping as many families as we can. Even the smallest donations can make a big difference in the quality of a child's life. The support we receive allows us to change the future of kids and families all over the world.

The NCCS sells your donated items to private companies on a bid/contract basis. The funds raised will be used directly to help children battling cancer and their families.

You can help by scheduling a stop at your home. We pick up only at homes that have scheduled a pickup. Place your items outside your front door by 8 a.m. in plastic bags or boxes marked for The National Children's Cancer Society or the NCCS or tagged with your postcard. Our drivers work regardless of the weather, from 8:00 a.m. until dark.

Program Synopsis

• In the United States

Our Family Support Program, Transportation Assistance Fund and Emergency Assistance Fund provide emotional and financial support to families throughout the United States during their child’s cancer treatment. By eliminating some of the psychological and financial hardships associated with cancer, families can stay focused on the health and well-being of their child.

The Beyond the Cure survivorship program prepares survivors and their families for life after cancer. Our Late Effects After Treatment Tool (LEATT) provides survivors with a private, customized online assessment of potential late effects based on their diagnosis and treatment. In addition, Beyond the Cure awards college scholarships to childhood cancer survivors, distributes free links and educational materials provides information on additional resources.
