"There is a cure somewhere. We just haven't found it yet, but we will," says Founder and Chairman Tony Martell.
Firmly Committed to the Fight
The T.J. Martell Foundation is the music industry's largest foundation that funds innovative medical research focused on finding cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS. The Foundation sources and supports early-stage translational research projects aimed at developing more effective clinical treatments for patients which otherwise might not be funded.
A Unique Approach
We provide funds for highly targeted research projects at leading medical and scientific institutions. We raise money through a series of ongoing campaigns and signature events leveraging the star power, celebrity and mass appeal of recognized music industry talent.
Funding Innovative Research
The T. J. Martell Foundation has provided more than $271 million to innovative, early-stage research and provides funding to leading research facilities. Over the years, we have emerged as one of the world’s leading sponsors of early-stage innovative research into the treatments and cures of leukemia, cancer and AIDS. Further, we encourage our funded scientists to leverage our funds with other larger funding sources, such as the National Institute of Health and the National Cancer Institute. This has been done successfully by many of our researchers and we can conservatively estimate that our funding has resulted in over one billion dollars in additional research funding.
