The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation and The Lung Cancer Alliance support lung cancer patients, provide research, and raise awareness of the disease. Combined, the organizations have raised over $130 million for lung cancer research and programs, and both are dedicated to changing the conversation around lung cancer, removing the stigma it carries as a “smoker’s disease.” The nonprofits realized that a merger would provide better succession planning, scale, complementary programs, and increased fundraising opportunities. The merged organization took the name GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration funded grants to assist with costs of both exploration and implementation of the merger.
