Statement of Purpose: The Colorado Melanoma Foundation was started not even a year ago by 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. We have applied for federal tax-exempt status which is currently pending. Our number of community supporters, professional and private corporate partners, and friends/colleagues in Colorado has grown drastically. We continue to operate solely 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. It is our hope to establish ourselves in this community as a true force for good, battling this aggressive cancer in all the ways we can by educating the high-risk population here, offering screenings and services to promote early melanoma detection, and supporting those who have been diagnosed, with current resources as well as survivor success stories. Moreover, it is our hope down the line to use our community support and finances to offer a broader range of melanoma-related services including research grants for promising developments, high ranking authorities on the subject to deliver talks, and expand our early detection/prevention services. Cancer is scary. Melanoma is an especially scary cancer. BUT, with the right kind of grass roots efforts and the passion we have for addressing this disease, we feel primed to make a positive impact in the place we call home. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any information on attending our events, getting involved as a volunteer, or making a donation to help us expand our community impact. Kindest Regards, -The Board of the Colorado Melanoma Foundation
