The Forward Fund was established by the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) in 2012 to stimulate the future of science, development and application of cancer immunology and immunotherapy through financially supporting its education and research.

Contributions to the Forward Fund will help provide grants to promising young post-doctoral researchers, advocate for more young scientists to enter the field of cancer immunotherapy research and much more.
