Cancer Services of Grant County Fund

Fund Purpose:
The purpose of this fund is to provide support to Cancer Services.


Fund Story:
Cancer Services of Grant County was established in 1959 by local individuals because of the high rates of cancer in Grant County. It is a local agency with just one location and is funded through donations, memorials, fund raising events and grants.


In 1999, Jennifer Lane-Riefler was hired as the Executive Director of the Cancer Service of Grant County. After she became aware of the mission of the Community Foundation of Grant County, she immediately went to her board of directors to set up a fund. “My plan was to establish a fund in order for our agency to support the efforts of the Foundation and to build assets to help us help those in Grant County face cancer into the future,” Lane-Riefler said. “It was and has been a wonderful relationship from the beginning.” Cancer Services has grown since the fund was established and the fund has grown as well. Today, Cancer Services serves over 3,000 clients that live, work or are treated in Grant County.


Cancer Services of Grant County has been working for 54 years to increase survival rates and decrease the burdens of illness in Grant County through education, early detection, free screenings and advocacy for those facing cancer.
