Nonprofits Dedicated to Lung Cancer Eradication Merge

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.
