Friends of Winship

Friends of Winship work tirelessly to build community understanding of the exceptional clinical care and of the advancements in cancer research at Winship.

In June 2010, Emory University approved the creation of Friends of Winship, a volunteer organization to function as an operating division under the Development Office of Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.

The group's stated mission is "to build community understanding and awareness about Winship Cancer Institute, while raising financial and human resources."

Friends of Winship will be instrumental in this process by:

  • Introducing Winship’s programs and services to the wider community.
  • Providing an ongoing community-based volunteer corps for Winship Cancer Institute.
  • Providing support, as invited, for those currently undergoing treatment and those who will seek treatment in the future.
  • Raising funds to support Winship’s programs in accordance with Winship’s overall fund raising strategy.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in cancer research and treatment, and in helping Winship Cancer Institute become the premier cancer center in the southeast.
