How We Help

Today and beyond

We are truly grateful for all the unwavering support for the mission of the I Back Jack Foundation. Over the past 10 years, with the help of many, we have raised over $1.25 million in support of Neuroblastoma research and treatments. Now, we ask everyone to keep their hearts open and hope alive as we continue to "back Jack" by supporting G9. Together, we must color the world gold so very child, everywhere will survivor cancer. 

As of July 1, 2016, the I Back Jack Foundation will begin the sunsetting process of closing operations as a separate Foundation and begin the transition to fully support Gold In September (G9). Learn more about Gold In September (G9), or donate directly to G9 here. 


In 2014, we raised more than a quarter-million dollars, including more than $200,000 at the 6th Annual Back to School Event in September. One of the highlights from the event was a special matching gift appeal that raised more than $80,000 in just 15 minutes. This resulted in the Foundation's ability to fund the expansion of a Photofrin trial for pediatric brain tumors directed by Childen's Hospital of Wisconsin.
