A century ago, City of Hope began with a vision that stretched far beyond the modest 10 acres of land in Duarte, California, where we first set down stakes and began building for the future.
Since the beginning, we’ve been committed to transforming the future of healthcare by combining the best science has to offer with the comforting power of human compassion. That focus, and the courage and resolve it inspired in patients and caregivers, set us apart even then: People called us the “city of hope.”
By staying true to that mission over the years, we’ve moved to the front line in the global battle against cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We’re proud to say we’re able to combine science with soul to create miracles that make lives whole again.
Many people like to leave a gift to charity in their will or trust to support causes that have been important in their lives. We hope you will consider creating your personal legacy of hope by leaving a gift in your will or trust to City of Hope. Your gift can make a difference for those who will turn to us for help in the future by helping to ensure the next 100 years of breakthrough research and treatments at City of Hope.Learn More Read Stories
