In 1995, the Jon and Karen Huntsman family started Huntsman Cancer Foundation (HCF) to ensure the future of cutting-edge research at Huntsmana Cancer Institute (HCI). HCI is the region’s only NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center and cancer specialty hospital. It is not owned by the Huntsman family, but rather is a gift to the citizens of Utah and beyond, and 100% owned by the State of Utah. In 2005, HCI was named the official cancer center of the state of Utah.
One family cannot do it alone, which is why HCF relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations, and community groups.
Huntsman Cancer Foundation's sole purpose is to raise funds to support the mission of Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) and is dedicated to ensuring excellence in these endeavors through the development and prudent stewardship of private resources.
