These grants are intended for institutions with the potential to participate significantly more in childhood cancer clinical trials, but which are smaller or have barriers to greater participation due to a lack of resources.

Infrastructure grants are designed to provide an infusion of funds to enable an institution to acquire the personnel (i.e., a clinical research associate) or resources it needs to reach its potential in broader clinical trial participation. The applicant should indicate how ongoing personnel costs will be funded in future years. Grants are normally in the range of $25,000 to $50,000; exceptions may be made for proposals with budgets documenting a need for more.

Preference is given to institutions with high needs and low philanthropic support, in areas where St. Baldrick’s funds are raised, especially with institutional involvement. Preference is given to institutions that serve populations which have limited access to participation in clinical trials. Preference is given to institutions which have not received other Foundation funding for at least one year. St. Baldrick’s participation is one factor that influences funding decisions for this grant category only. Participation may include speaking at an event or to the media on behalf of St. Baldrick’s, helping identify volunteers or families of kids with cancer to honor, hosting a group of volunteers to learn more about the cause, participating in your favorite activity to raise funds for pediatric cancer research (i.e. running, walking, hosting another event, etc.) head-shaving and more
