Markey Women Strong

Started in the summer of 2016, Markey Women Strong is a philanthropy group comprised of women who, together, will make a meaningful difference in cancer research by funding female researchers focused on groundbreaking cancer research at the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center.

Each member of Markey Women Strong will contribute a $1,000 donation. Together, the anticipated one hundred-plus investors will gather and listen to a group of female researchers selected by UK Markey Cancer Center Director Dr. Mark Evers. Each researcher will present to the group about their research projects and about how the Markey Women Strong funds would further and strengthen their research.

The Markey Women Strong investors will then decide how to disperse their collective donated funds. Throughout the year they will truly see their dollars at work, as their selected researchers will report back to the group on the progress of their research.
