HOPE Run July 19, 2014


Instead of giving to Isaac’s Foundation, you can give directly to Isaac’s HOPE Fund for Curing Childhood Cancer. This is the original fund we set up at the U of MN to fund advancing research for Childhood Cancer.


Isaac's Hope Fund for Curing Childhood Cancer - 11483

This fund was established in honor of Isaac Lieser by his parents and the Isaac's Journey ..."where HOPE begins" Foundation. Its purpose is to support leading-edge research in children's cancer and (eventually) accumulate funds to establish a fully endowed chair at the University of Minnesota Medical School.


Endowed Funds:

A permanently endowed fund provides flexible annual investment income generated from the principal, which is kept intact. This allows researchers at the University of Minnesota to explore innovative ideas in their goal to eliminate childhood cancer.


Donate to the U of MN online directly:

MN Woman of Today

Isaac's Foundation

donates $40,000 to the University of Minnesota.

Since the Foundation began in January of 2008 over $185,000 has been raised to sponsor an Endowment Chair with the University of Minnesota, Isaac's HOPE Fund for Curing Childhood Cancer. Isaac's Foundation has reached a level of support with the U of M where our research dollars have been distributed upon much needed programs overseen by our Medical Advisory Committee, Pediatric Hematologist Oncologist Drs. Joseph Neglia and Brenda Weigel.

Last year, the U of M made progress in many priority areas in pediatric cancer research and Isaac’s Foundation is a valued partner in this work. We’d like to highlight two areas in particular that the University of Minnesota.

At the end of each year we gather our Team together to give a gift of monetary support to the U of M.ALL of our funds raised are committed to the advancement and Cure of Childhood Cancer Research.

Since Isaac’s Foundation began in January of 2008 over $145,000 has been donated to the University of Minnesota.
