American Cancer Society Expands its Mission for a Cancer-Free World

NetSuite Helps Nonprofit Support Rapid Growth as it Fights Cancer on All Fronts to Save and Celebrate Lives

LAS VEGAS, April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- SUITEWORLD 2019 -- The American Cancer Society, a global leader in the fight against cancer, recently launched NetSuite to run its core financial processes so it can focus valuable time and resources on its mission to free the world of cancer. With NetSuite, the American Cancer Society is looking to take advantage of an integrated business platform to support its growth and streamline the management of multiple programs and fundraising efforts across its 900 U.S. offices.

Founded in 1913 by 10 doctors and five laypeople in New York City, the American Cancer Society has grown into a nationwide, community-based health organization with 1.5 million volunteers and now attacks cancer from every angle 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To support its network of volunteers, multiple fundraising efforts, and expanding range of programs, which include everything from critical research and education/awareness campaigns to emotional support and the fight for lifesaving policy changes, the American Cancer Society selected NetSuite to replace its aging and fragmented infrastructure with a single, scalable business platform.    

"This year alone there will be an estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,880 cancer deaths in the U.S.," said Rob King, CFO, the American Cancer Society. "As we look to grow our impact, NetSuite will support the management of our core financial operations so we are able to focus on helping people get well and stay well, finding cures and fighting back against the disease."

The American Cancer Society will use NetSuite across its growing network of programs, volunteers and fundraising efforts. NetSuite will also help with the management and tracking of donations and goals. To help support the mission of the organization, NetSuite will host a pledge wall at SuiteWorld19 where attendees can write down their lifestyle promise in the fight against cancer. Attendees are encouraged to share their pledge on social media using the hashtags #AttackingCancer and #SuiteWorld19. For 2,000 pledges, NetSuite will donate $10,000 to the American Cancer Society.

"The American Cancer Society has led the fight against cancer for more than 100 years and the results it has achieved are nothing short of amazing," said Evan Goldberg, EVP, Oracle NetSuite. "We are always excited when we can help nonprofits focus their time and resources on making the world a better place and are proud to be helping the American Cancer Society manage its growing network of programs, volunteers and fundraising efforts."
