WELCOME TO THE SSBTR WEBSITE!

Students in leadership positions learn about brain tumors and gain real world experience in running a non-profit business while raising funds for brain tumor research. Beneficiaries of the money we raise are Barrow Neurological Institute, National Brain Tumor Society, Phoenix Childrens Hospital, Steele Childrens Research Center in Tucson, and Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen). With your help we can make a difference. The intent of our website is to further our objectives of disseminating information about this disease process, stimulating more widespread involvement within our community through donating, volunteering and participating in one or more of our events, and publicizing and promoting this exceptional student-run organization.

Philanthropic "Quotes"

  • “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.”

  • “Philanthropy is almost the only virtue which is sufficiently appreciated by mankind.”

  • “Social advance depends quite as much upon an increase in moral sensibility as it does upon a sense of duty.”

  • “The raising of extraordinarily large sums of money, given voluntarily and freely by millions of our fellow Americans, is a unique American tradition... Philanthropy, charity, giving voluntarily and freely... call it what you like, but it is truly a jewel of an American tradition.”

  • “Think of giving not only as a duty but as a privilege.”
