Favre Family Award for Innovation

Do you have an innovative idea that could impact patient care, solve a problem, enhance quality or otherwise advance the Cancer Center’s ability to deliver on its mission?

The Cancer Center is known as a place of innovation and discovery. Many novel treatments and ideas developed by team members from throughout the Cancer Center are in use around the world. Now, thanks to the Favre Family Award for Innovation, funding will be available to bring more of this ingenuity to life!

In 2016, philanthropist Art Favre made a $1 million investment in the Cancer Center to help pioneer innovative and creative solutions that could benefit the thousands of patients we serve. Because of Mr. Favre’s belief in the Cancer Center’s ability to make an impact, he earmarked a percentage of his gift each year to fund creative ideas and fresh thinking for tackling the challenges of providing comprehensive cancer care—today and moving forward.

Every Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center team member is eligible for the Favre Family Award for Innovation. We encourage all departments, clinics, program directors, service lines, physicians and individual team members to collaborate, get creative and apply for the award.

Deadline for proposal submissions is February 21, 2020. For more information or assistance, contact Amanda LaGrange at
