Foundation for Gynecologic Oncology

Foundation for Women’s Cancer

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer (FWC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting research, education and public awareness of gynecologic cancers. The FWC is the official foundation of the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO).

Ways to Give

There are many ways to support the important work of the FWC—donate online, by mail, email, phone or when you renew your SGO membership.


FWC Research Grants and Awards Program

The FWC Research Grants and Awards program strives to accelerate the research of young investigators and promote the long-term success of the gynecologic oncology field.

Gynecologic Cancer Education Courses

The FWC hosts free patient-focused education courses throughout the country. These courses are open to all gynecologic cancer patients, survivors, partners, family members, friends and anyone else interested in hearing from leading U.S. experts in gynecologic cancer treatment and research. If you’re interested in hosting a patient-focused course at your institution, please contact the FWC at

National Race to End Women’s Cancer

Hosted by the FWC, the National Race to End Women’s Cancer consists of a 5K or 1-mile run/walk and an inspirational pre-race program filled with music, dancing and stories from survivors and advocates. This is your opportunity to join forces with us as we strive to #EndWomensCancer. Be a part of this special day by registering to run or walk, forming or joining a team, fundraising or donating to support those impacted by gynecologic cancers.
