History or background of award
The Genesis Oncology Trust is delighted to announce that from 2008 the amount available for distribution annually will be increased to $1 million. We are able to do this as a direct result of the ongoing generosity of the tens of thousands of Genesis Energy Customers that donate to the Trust through their monthly energy bill. A new educational grant has been added to the award portfolio.
