City of Hope's Circle 1500

Who Is CIRCLE 1500?

City of Hope’s Circle 1500 community is a group of philanthropic women of all generations who fund breakthrough research that leads to new hope for women fighting cancer. Circle 1500 encourages each new and returning member to join or renew at one of three membership levels — $500, $1,500 or $5,000. The collective investment of membership dollars is applied annually to more encouraging new research studies supporting the Women’s Cancers Program. Each Circle 1500 seed-grant is chosen directly by the Circle 1500 membership through an annual voting process, giving members the power to make a difference in the lives of thousands of women — mothers, daughters, sisters, best friends and of course the support systems they each have at home.

Circle 1500 members and their guests are encouraged to join quarterly meetings for social, supportive and educational conversations with City of Hope researchers, medical oncologists, patients and other cancer survivors. Attendance at meetings is not mandatory. Meetings provide opportunities to learn about new approaches to cancer care and prevention research and to ask questions that are important to you.

About City of Hope's Women's Cancers Program

The Women’s Cancers Program at City of Hope brings together medical doctors and laboratory researchers across the institution to gain a better understanding of cancers affecting women and to develop better treatments, screening methods, prevention strategies and survivorship care.

Circle 1500 has been a proud supporter of the Women’s Cancers Program at City of Hope since its inception in 2014. In addition to providing seed-grants for innovative research in Women’s Cancers, Circle 1500 proudly supports the annual Walk for Hope at City of Hope.
