Health Opportunity through Partnership in Education (HOPE), a nonprofit organization supporting scientific research and dissemination of cancer information, has announced a gift of $100,000 to the American Cancer Society (ACS) to support cancer research.

HOPE, along with its partner Washington National Insurance Company, worked with ACS as part of their 2012 matching gift program. HOPE promised to match donations up to $100,000 in gifts received.

"The HOPE contribution will enable the American Cancer Society to continue to fund lifesaving cancer research programs," said Roshini George, national vice president of health promotions for ACS.  "The donation goes a long way toward helping the society continue its fight for every birthday threatened by cancer."

Founded in 1913, ACS has invested more money in cancer research than any other nongovernmental, nonprofit organization in the U.S. To date, ACS has funded 46 Nobel Laureates, including two of the three scientists that received the 2011 Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology.
