Cancer Donation

The Israel Cancer Association's activities are funded solely by private contributions making each donation evermore crucial. ICA works in collaboration with the health authorities but is financially independent. This independence enables ICA to operate according to strictly professional criteria, while maintaining a global national point of view and vision. It can also ascertain that the administrative expenses constitute less than 10% of its budget, that all donations received are transferred in full (no overhead is taken), and that hospitals are forbidden from deducting any overhead costs from contributions transferred to them by ICA.


Nevertheless, ICA acts as a complementary agent while serving as a catalyst for innovation. Throughout its existence, ICA has worked continuously to make the fight against cancer a national priority – no simple matter in a nation beset by constant threats, economic hardships and social upheaval. The fight against cancer is a matter of global concern and knows no geographical boundaries.
