The Colorado Melanoma Foundation was incorporated in July, 2013 as an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in order to educate the public, support patient networks, encourage early detection and screening, and maintain current information on treatment options, sun protective behaviors, and recent developments in our global understanding on melanoma.
We began with the combined efforts of several passionate volunteers in the fields of Melanoma Research, Dermatology, and Law, to name a few. We have gained local recognition as the first and only Colorado local, melanoma-specific non-profit organization. Our community supporters, professional and private corporate partners, and friends/colleagues in Colorado have grown dramatically.
We continue to operate on a volunteer bases; every dollar raised by the foundation goes straight to our operations and outreach. There is no paid governing body, we do all the work ourselves, and maintain the highest levels of non-profit integrity, transparency, and ethics.
The Colorado Melanoma Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to promote melanoma awareness in Colorado by educating residents about melanoma skin cancer & sun-safe behavior, delivering preventative skin screening services, and providing support for current patients.
