About The Organization – The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation

The PMCF raises funds for Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world, to deliver future care now. For more than a decade, The PMCF has been on an aggressive growth trajectory. In 2018, we raised $112 million—our best year ever—and we are on track to raise even more in 2019.

Setting daring and audacious goals is a mindset that is driven by PMCF’s culture and passion to perform. We have pioneered many successful fundraising programs, including our world-leading Princess Margaret Home Lottery, and some of the world’s largest cancer fundraising events, including:

Rexall OneWalk to Conquer Cancer

The PMCF has a strong track record of securing and stewarding major and estate gifts. We engage our supporters through annual campaigns, leadership and tribute giving, and more than 100 community events and ethnocultural programs.

Through our diverse and complementary portfolio of fundraising events, we attract over 300,000 gifts, 250,000 unique lottery purchasers, and 15,000 event participants and volunteers each year. And we engage with hundreds of corporate partners and their employees.

The PMCF has a distinguished board that engages in fundraising, and provides governance and support through a number of very active committees. Princess Margaret is a proud member of University Health Network, Canada’s largest research hospital network, which also includes Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital, Toronto Rehab Institute and The Michener Institute for Education.
