Huntsman Cancer Institute

Help be apart of the generation to end cancer


Sigma Chi & Huntsman

At Sigma Chi, this is our battle cry. Thousands of Sigma Chi's have stepped up to fund cancer research and we have completed a seven-year commitment to raise $11 million to fuel the lifesaving work and innovative research at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). But as Sigma Chis we know our work is not done, so we are again making the largest commitment to a philanthropy in men's fraternity history. In 2019, we announced a $20 million pledge directed to women's cancers, to honor the women that inspire us every day and who work tirelessly with us in Derby Days to fight this horrible disease. Together, we are The Generation to End Cancer™.

Jon M. Huntsman (1937–2018)

Order of Constantine and Significant Sig Jon M. Huntsman Sr., PENNSYLVANIA 1959, lived a life of service and giving back. He built a legacy on values gained through his family and his experience as a Sigma Chi to make a difference in the world. After losing his mother to breast cancer, Brother Huntsman made it his life goal to eradicate cancer from the planet. The Huntsman family donated $300 million to establish the Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah, and because of the Huntsman family's generosity, 100% of your donation goes directly to fund the mission of HCI.
