We appreciate you standing with us to support cancer research via the McCoy Monarch Fund. 

Based on the final wishes of beloved wife and mother, Rene McCoy, her family and friends started the McCoy Monarch fund to help undergraduate students at Hamline University to find cures and better ways to manage this dreaded disease.

The McCoy Monarch Fund is a self-perpetuating endowment. It went live on the first of January, 2021 with an initial funding of $53,000, pooled from the contributions of a group of Rene and Brian McCoy’s friends. The fund becomes fully operational in Fall 2021.

This endowment is unique because 100% of the funds go directly to the student recipient, without any fees being diverted or deducted elsewhere. The fund is led by an advisory Hamline University science professor committee, which searches all year for the best and brightest from university STEM departments.

The aim is to raise $10-20K per year to support as many students as possible for summer research into cancer treatments and a cure at Hamline University.
