One of the main ways that CAC2 supports the childhood cancer community is by identifying and completing projects that individual organizations can’t complete and manage as easily or as effectively alone. The CAC2 Project Incubator and Accelerator supports this process by encouraging CAC2 members to submit concepts of collaborative projects that fulfill the CAC2 mission of fostering and sustaining greater levels of collaboration, information exchange, and learning across the childhood cancer community in the areas of advocacy & awareness, research & treatment, family support & survivorship.
CAC2’s Project Incubator process provides the support of experienced volunteers to help guide members who have great ideas through the process of refining their ideas, presenting the concept to the full membership for endorsement, and support for engaging the greater community in the execution of the project.

CAC2 Projects in Process:
Ethics Think Tank:
The ethics think tank team is developing a working paper that identifies the potential ethical issues charities face when funding research and the Best Management Practices (BMPs) charities use in dealing with those issues.
Foundation Match for Joint Research Funding
The foundation match for joint research funding team is building a searchable web platform for CAC2 member organizations with like-minded missions to connect, collaborate, and fund research and other projects with a goal of preventing duplication of effort and creating a more coordinated funding effort to support research.
