Mission Statement

Founded in 1947, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s mission is to provide expert, compassionate care to children and adults with cancer while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of cancer and related diseases. As an affiliate of Harvard Medical School and a Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute, the Institute also provides training for new generations of physicians and scientists, designs programs that promote public health particularly among high-risk and underserved populations and disseminates innovative patient therapies and scientific discoveries in Boston, across the United States and throughout the world.

Background Statement

In 1947, Sidney Farber, MD, founded the Children's Cancer Research Foundation, dedicated to providing compassionate, state-of-the-art treatment to children with cancer while developing cancer preventatives, treatments and cures of the future. The foundation officially expanded its programs to include patients of all ages in 1969, and in 1974 became known as the Sidney Farber Cancer Center. The long-term support of the Charles A. Dana Foundation was acknowledged by incorporating the Institute under its present name in 1983.

Today, Dana-Farber employs over 4,000 people supporting more than 350,000 patient visits a year and participates in nearly 700 clinical trials. Its international reputation for blending research and clinical excellence uniquely positions the Institute to develop and test the next generation of cancer therapies in both the laboratory and the clinic.
Dana-Farber is a principal teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, a federally designated Center for AIDS Research and the founding member of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center, a federally designated comprehensive cancer center comprised of seven Harvard-affiliated hospitals and more than 900 investigators who have made astounding discoveries and continue to work tirelessly to translate those discoveries into better approaches for diagnosis and treatment.
Providing advanced training in cancer treatment and research for an international faculty, the Institute conducts community-based programs in cancer prevention, detection, and control throughout New England, and maintains joint programs with other Boston institutions affiliated with Harvard Medical School and the Partners Health Care System, including Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston Children's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Dana-Farber is supported by the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the generous support of numerous foundations and individuals who contribute to the Institute's research and clinical programs or to The Jimmy Fund, the principal charity of the Institute, named for one of its child patients.

Impact Statement

Ranked New England’s best and the country’s 5th best cancer hospital by U.S. News & World Report, Dana-Farber’s equal commitment to research & patient care is unique among cancer institutions. This 50-50 balance results in extraordinary partnerships between laboratory scientists and clinicians to ensure that each patient’s medical, psychological, family and spiritual needs are addressed throughout their entire cancer journey. Regardless of age, teams of multi-disciplinary experts focusing on the same type of cancer collaborate to offer novel therapies to patients and access to innovative clinical trials. Our network of support services is comprehensive and specialized to address unique patient needs at every stage of treatment and life. Last year, the Institute treated more than 47,000 adult patients through 350,000 visits in 13 specialized centers; and the Jimmy Fund Clinic treated more than 2,400 patients through nearly 15,000 visits.

Dana-Farber’s history of groundbreaking discoveries traces back to its founder, Dr. Sidney Farber, the “father of chemotherapy”, and first physician to attain remissions of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common childhood cancer. In the 1970s, our scientists pioneered combination chemotherapy, using multiple drugs to treat cancer more effectively. In the 1980s, the Institute was the first to implement autologous bone marrow transplantation, a life-saving procedure that reduces the risk of transplant rejection due to imperfect matches. Also in the 1980s, Dana-Farber scientists identified the human T-cell receptor, a key mechanism that led to vastly increased understanding of HIV/AIDS. In 2011, we launched Profile, one of the most extensive genotyping projects in cancer research nationally, allowing the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center to test all consenting patients’ tumor tissue for nearly 500 cancer-causing mutations in 41 cancer genes and generate data to better understand the causes, treatments and prevention of cancer.

Needs Statement

Dana-Farber is proud to be at the forefront of dramatic advances in cancer research and treatment and remains committed to conquering all forms of cancer. Our successes to date would not have been possible without the partnership of generous donors. While we have made great strides, there is still much work to be done to develop better treatments to improve outcomes for all who suffer from this insidious disease. Unrestricted funds are enormously important because they can be directed where and when they are needed most, helping to ensure that we have the necessary flexibility to sustain novel research and seize every opportunity in patient care, without financial restraints imposed by economic downturns and a challenging federal funding climate. Such fundsallowus to be nimble in our tireless pursuit to better understand,treat and ultimately eradicate cancer. Among many other priorities, your support will bolster the Institute’s ability to address patients’ and families’ medical and psychosocial needs; provide seed funds for the most innovative early stage investigations not yet eligible for federal funding; educate the wider community about the importance of cancer prevention and screening; and support training programs for the next generation of scientists in the fight against cancer.

Program Short-Term Success 

The Yawkey Center for Cancer Care, which opened in February 2011, adds 275,000 square feet of clinical and support space and is designed to accommodate more than 100 exam rooms, more than 150 infusion spaces, and 20 consultation rooms. This clinical care facilitywas designed with advice from patients, families, and staff to advance clinical care, optimize patient safety, enhance the patient experience, and provide an environment that fosters healing. Programs and resources such as our pioneering use of ERSA-C (Electronic Self-Report Assessment-Cancer), a first-of-its-kind computer program that helps patients track their symptoms and allow doctors to monitor them between visits, and our pilot of a real-time locating system to identify the locations of patients and staff and reduce wait times ensure that all of our patients’ physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are met during and ease the burden of cancer treatment.

Program Long-Term Success 
U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals guide ranked Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center the top cancer center in New England, for the 12th year in a row, and fifth overall in the country. Dana-Farber and Children's Hospital Boston was ranked as the #2 pediatric cancer hospital in the United States in its 2011-12 Best Children's Hospitals guide. This combined ranking reflects the clinical and scientific strength and depth of the Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center, a partnership of more than 60 years that provides comprehensive care to children with cancer and survivors of pediatric cancers.

Program Success Monitored By  We set standards for our own practices and measure ourselves against other comprehensive cancer centers nationwide. We measure five different aspects of patient care: effectiveness, patient and family satisfaction, safety, equitable access, and timeliness. In addition, U.S. News & World Report publishes its Best Hospitals guide each year as a reference for patients who are reviewing their medical care options. The overall score is based on professional reputation, mortality rates, patient safety, and a grouping of care-related factors such as nursing and patient services.
Examples of Program Success 

At Griffin’s 8-week checkup, his pediatrician found that his belly was abnormally large and sent him to Children’s Hospital. After the test results came in, pediatric oncologist Dr. Lindsay Frazier met with the family to explain Griffin's cancer. This was a hard conversation for Griffin's parents, but Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center (DF/CHCC) "had a psychologist available to speak with us, which helped emotionally," says Griffin’s mother, Melissa. "And Dr. Frazier even called us at home the following Saturday to ask how we were managing."

Griffin's cancer was called neuroblastoma and his care was transferred to two specialists at DF/CHCC. By the time he was 10 months old, Griffin had beaten cancer.

Looking back, Melissa feels lucky to live so close to Dana-Farber. "I know it sounds odd, but I looked forward to going to the Jimmy Fund Clinic because we genuinely felt that everyone there cared about us. It was a good place for us during that period of our lives."

B. Research

Research, both basic and clinical, remains at the core of our mission. Our researchers are currently trailblazing the concept of personalized medicine, tailoring therapies to each patient, to develop less invasive and toxic treatments.

Population Served Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  In 2011, the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center boldly and successfully launched Profile, one of the most comprehensive cancer research studies to help accelerate the development of personalized treatments for every person with cancer to be undertaken nationally. This major research study tests all consenting adult patients’ tumor tissue for nearly 500 genetic cancer-causing mutations in 41 cancer genes, using OncoMap technology, a novel screening approach discovered at Dana-Farber. The study will provide researchers with one of the world’s largest databases of cancer genetic abnormalities. Over time, this growing body of information will help scientists discover more about the genetic causes of cancers and increase the development of new, targeted therapies to treat them.
Program Long-Term Success  Dana-Farber is committed to translating basic research findings into clinical applications to ultimately improve treatments and outcomes for patients with all types of cancer. We seek to better understand drug resistance and disease relapse and overcome them through the continued development of targeted and effective “smart” drugs, which attack cancer cells but not normal ones. For example, in 2008, Dana-Farber scientists achieved a medical first by using a targeted drug to drive a patient's metastatic melanoma into remission. When lab tests showed the patient's tumor cells harbored a certain mutated gene, doctors treated her with a drug that blocks the gene's action, resulting in a dramatic reduction in tumor size and activity. In 2011, we received FDA approval for the first drug approved for advanced melanoma in more than 10 years. Over the next decade, the continued translation of our basic discoveries into informed drug development for more effective therapies is a top priority.
Program Success Monitored By  The Office of Research Support Services provides financial and administrative oversight for research at Dana-Farber. The Clinical Trials Office (CTO) develops policies, procedures, and best practices related to clinical trials; coordinates submission and compliance of protocols; assists in the pre-review of protocols before submission for approval; provides guidance related to the operational conduct of a trial, regulatory matters, and multi-center site issues; and facilitates clinical research center (CRC) recruitment, on-boarding and training and  oversight and management of CRC teams. The goal of the CTO is to help assure that a clinical trial protocol is well written, able to be conducted at Dana-Farber and will meet the requirements for scientific review and Institutional Review Board.
Examples of Program Success  Dana-Farber's George Demetri, MD, designed and led an international Phase 3 clinical trial of regorafenib, a new targeted drug that can significantly control life-threatening metastatic disease in patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) that have developed resistance to Gleevec and Sutent, the only two FDA-approved drugs available for this disease. The trial determined that treatment with regorafenib reduces the risk of disease progression or death by more than 70 percent in these patients. In another trial, the novel compound selumetinib has become the first targeted therapy to benefit patients with the most common genetic subtype of lung cancer, non-small cell lung cancer. This study confirmed that chemotherapy and selumetinib might be an effective treatment for KRAS-mutant lung cancer and have implications for the treatment of all cancers that harbor KRAS mutations, including pancreatic and colorectal cancer.

C. Training

Program Short-Term Success  Dana-Farber is keenly aware that future advances in cancer medicine lie in the imaginations of the talented physicians and scientists poised to be the leaders of tomorrow. The Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Affairs Office supports trainees’ professional development through programs on manuscript writing, grant writing, and laboratory management. Dana-Farber attracts the finest researchers and clinicians in the world, and its junior faculty members benefit from extensive professional development opportunities. All members of the Institute's professional staff hold faculty appointments at Harvard University, and many participate as mentors for institutional graduate and postdoctoral training programs. It is a source of great pride that so many of Dana-Farber’s former trainees are now principal investigators and institutional leaders here and at cancer centers around the world.
Program Long-Term Success  Dana-Farber faculty are consistently recognized for their excellence in medical education, research and clinical training. The Institute offers formal opportunities for career development and implements diversity initiatives to increase the quality and balance of the professional lives of our young faculty. Examples of these innovative programs include the Office for Faculty Development, the Office of Diversity and Talent Management, both of which offer unique teaching and mentoring programs, and access to multiple multi-institutional programs such as those offered through Harvard Catalyst and Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center. Contributing to our efforts to increase the pipeline of future cancer researchers, the Institute also supports instructional programs with high schools, colleges, and community groups that enable underserved students to work in Dana-Farber laboratories and begin their careers in science.
Program Success Monitored By  Biannually, Dana-Farber’s faculty and staff complete an opinion survey as part of efforts to create an ideal work environment. The survey consists of nearly 50 questions (some open-ended) on core values, work environment, organizational performance, diversity and inclusion, pay and benefits and supervisor/staff relationships. The purpose of the survey is to define levels of staff satisfaction/engagement, determine strengths and areas of opportunity, promote honest feedback, gauge if past actions/improvements have been successful and use the results to plan for future improvements. Results from the 2011 survey revealed that Dana-Farber scored 4.23 out of 5 for workplace satisfaction/commitment, outperforming national academic health care average and ranking in the 87th percentile of large academic medical health care organizations. High marks were received in quality care/service to patients, connection to the mission and values, and sense of pride in working for Dana-Farber.
Examples of Program Success  The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program at Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center (DF/CHCC) is one of the most recognized in the nation and has trained more leaders in the hematology and oncology field than any other. The program admits six new fellows per year who spend one year in full-time clinical work and two or more years in research training, depending on previous training and interests. The program is geared to broadly train MD or MD/PhD fellows in areas of clinical research, including outcomes, ethics, epidemiology, therapeutic trials and translational research, or in one of the major basic science disciplines: protein chemistry, structural biology, molecular biology, stem cell and developmental biology, genetics, genomics, immunology, systems biology, neuroscience or cell biology.

D. Community Based Programs

Dana-Farber promotes health in the Greater Boston community through its Community Benefits Program, which brings cancer education & resources to at-risk populations, and through its Center for Community-Based Research, which conducts research to reduce disparities in cancer care.

Population Served At-Risk Populations Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 

Dana-Farber’s Community Benefits Program aims to make Dana-Farber's care and research findings more accessible to everyone, including our neighbors in local communities. The Institute is committed to bringing cancer prevention and education initiatives to an increasing number of members of the Greater Boston community. Dana-Farber physicians are also committed to educating the public about cancer risk reduction, screening and early detection, and treatment options and survivorship. They reach out to Greater Boston communities to heighten awareness and answer questions through: ongoing presentations at partnering high schools; educational sessions to physicians and patients at community health centers; working with faith-based organizations and in collaboration with the Boston Ministerial Alliance; and speaking engagements to the elderly at low-income housing sites.

Program Long-Term Success  The Institute’s community benefits mission is threefold: to establish quantifiable and sustainable cancer prevention programs focusing on at-risk and underserved populations; provide expertise in cancer care to city and state health departments, community-based agencies and health care providers; and increase accrual of minorities into clinical trials. In addition to bringing cancer prevention, education and resources directly to diverse, at-risk, underserved populations, the Institute also conducts a broad scope of research to identify new interventions that reduce health disparities and improve access to care.
Program Success Monitored By 

To ensure that Dana-Farber’s community outreach activities and programs are meeting the health needs in the community, Dana-Farber’s Community Benefits Office partnered with Health Resources in Action (HRiA), a non-profit public health consultancy organization in Boston, to undertake a comprehensive community health assessment. In Phase I, social, economic, and epidemiological data at the community level were reviewed and analyzed to provide a health portrait of Dana-Farber’s priority communities (Roxbury, Mission Hill, Dorchester, Mattapan, and Jamaica Plain). Phase II involved a comprehensive qualitative study, where Dana-Farber staff, community leaders, and residents provided feedback in focus groups and interviews to identify community needs and assets as well as areas for further community engagement and program expansion. The needs assessment final report was completed in early 2012.

Examples of Program Success  Dana-Farber's Mammography Van is the only mobile mammography program in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It provides screening mammograms and breast health education to women age 40 and older.In partnership with community-based organizations and neighborhood health centers, the Van serves all Boston neighborhoods and some surrounding towns. Skilled, board-certified mammography technologists from Dana-Farber perform the exams and films are interpreted by board-certified radiologists. By bringing Dana-Farber's high-quality services directly to the neighborhoods in which women live and work, the Van breaks down cultural, linguistic, financial, and logistical barriers to care and makes mammograms more accessible to women who might otherwise not have access to screening. Likewise, the Patient Navigator Program helps to remove barriers to cancer care for diverse women with low socio-economic status, limited English proficiency, disabilities, or lack of insurance.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
