Talent from the medical, scientific and business communities join forces on an entirely voluntary basis to create awareness, identify promising initiatives and support research into cures for the most virulent and underfunded forms of childhood cancer. Growth of the Beckley Foundation is accomplished through personal and organizational giving, as well as through numerous fund-raising events.


Since 2016, every $1.00 friends and supporters donate to the Beckley Foundation actually generates $1.50 for our charitable causes through a 50% matching grant from Rafaela and Jacob Beckley. Although this may not be sustainable as the foundation grows, we are proud to currently maintain our 150% status.

We Believe

The path to a cure for any cancer is a long and arduous road because of the enormous resources that are required. Within the milieu of resources vs. results, childhood cancer poses some unique challenges.

Current Events

The Beckley Foundation hosts and participates in several events each year. Through your support, we are able to provide resources to the most innovative research labs in the United States as well as direct support to families.

Make a Donation

Childhood cancer is the #1 disease-related cause of death for children in the United States. For those who survive, two-thirds will also endure chronic health conditions from the toxic side effects of treatment.
