The Laurel Society is the signature donor society of Fox Chase Cancer Center, honoring our most generous supporters—individuals, corporations, foundations, community fundraisers, and Fox Chase faculty and staff. Individual members demonstrate their commitment by providing annual support of $1,000 or more during Fox Chase's fiscal year (July 1 through June 30). Corporations, foundations and community fundraisers become members at the $5,000+ level.

Laurel Society members participate in the exciting cycle of discovery and hope at Fox Chase Cancer Center. Few investments yield a return as deeply satisfying as the gift of extending, improving, or saving lives.
