Hackers for Hope

Alfred E. Smith and Tim Brown founded this organization while recovering from cancer back in 1988. They vowed to “give back” to the cancer research and treatment community that helped them and so many others. Throughout the years, Hackers For Hope has raised close to $17 million and grants have been given to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Stamford Hospital’s Bennett Cancer Center, and the RH McCooey Research Fund, Cannonball Kids Cancer Foundation among many others.


Hackers for Hope has funded cancer research at many highly regarded institutions over the years. Read what our grants have made possible and how some of the recent beneficiaries have used our donations.
