City of Hope's Circle 1500

City of Hope's Circle 1500


    Who Is Circle 1500?

    Circle 1500 is a giving circle of philanthropic women who fund breakthrough women’s
    cancers research at City of Hope. Each research seed-grant is chosen directly by the Circle
    1500 members through an annual voting process, giving members the power to make a
    difference in the lives of thousands of women – mothers, daughters and sisters.
    Philanthropy, education and community are the missions of our group. We meet quarterly
    to hear and ask questions from City of Hope scientists, researchers, doctors, socialize, take
    lab tours and attend special events. To date we have raised over 1 million dollars and
    funded 17 pilot studies. One hundred percent of these funds go to fund women’s cancer
    research at City of Hope.

    Each new and returning Circle 1500 member can join or renew at one of three
    membership levels – $500, $1500 and $5,000+ annually. Members and their guests are
    encouraged to join the quarterly meetings for social, supportive and educational
    conversations with COH researchers, oncologists, patients and other cancer survivors.
    Attendance is not mandatory. Our meetings are held at City of Hope and other venues
    featuring speakers on women’s health topics, funded research updates and trends in
    cancer treatments. Our members are patients, community members, friends and families
    of women who are committed in the fight against women’s cancers. Please join us!
