ABOUT 1000 PLUS CLUB
In 1978, the 1000+ Plus Club (now known as the 1000+ Club to Benefit Cancer, Inc. a/k/a 1000+ Club) was organized in Broward County, Florida as a support group to address cancer. The organization became a 501(c)(3) corporation in 2009, and is now known as the 1000+ Club to Beneﬁt Cancer, Inc., a/k/a/ 1000+ Club.
Since 2011, dedicated and diligent volunteer members have awarded over $500,000 through fundraisers, dues, and sponsorships to assist programs and services that have made a significant difference in the lives of many cancer patients and their families.

GROW WITH US
The 1000+ Club to Beneﬁt Cancer, Inc. a/k/a 1000+ Club was originally organized in 1978 to address the cancer needs in our community. The group’s name is derived from the commitment of founding members to each pledge or raise at least $1,000 for the cause. In July, 2009 we decided to work directly with our own community and was recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization.
Since its inception, over $4 million have been raised through member contributions and diligent fund raising efforts of the volunteers, underwriters, and sponsors of this organization. In 2011, we established our Charitable Giving Committee for the purpose of distributing the funds we raise to deserving local non-profits serving the cancer community. In this short time we have been able to award close to $400,000 in grants to benefit children and adults living with cancer in Broward County.
