Development and Public Relations

Thanks for your support of cancer research…

On behalf of the faculty and staff of The Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota, thank you
for making a difference through your donations that will change lives. Your support of the
Institute’s cancer research through generous gifts of time, effort and money, make accelerating
answers to cancer possible.

The Hormel Institute continues to grow in research capabilities, in achieving grants to fund
innovative studies and to share discoveries with scientists around the world through publishing
in high impact publications. These important discoveries move us forward toward new ways to
prevent, control and treat cancer. This is only possible because each of you share our vision of a
world where cancer can be prevented, eliminated, controlled. We thank the dedicated faculty
and staff of The Hormel Institute for their research achievements – representing them is indeed
a privilege and an honor.

The Hormel Foundation remains our most important and significant partner and through the
leadership of Mr. Jeff Ettinger and the board, we have been guided to even greater
achievements and potential. Thanks to The Hormel Foundation, 100% of your donation is used
entirely for cancer research.

Our mission is to shine the light on the outstanding cancer research of The Hormel Institute and
win support for it. Our guiding principle is to, through collaboration and partnership, help
improve the health of the world through scientific research. Together, we know for a healthier
tomorrow, research must be funded today – we ask for and thank you for your continued
