Community Collaboration Reduces Financial Distress

Working with its local community, this cancer program created a Cancer Patient Support Fund for patients experiencing financial distress. For this effort, oncology supportive services providers and members of the Lancaster General Health Foundation developed comprehensive funding guidelines and tools, including a financial tracking spreadsheet and process map. Lessons learned provide strategies for fostering philanthropic support in the local community through awareness and relationship building.
