Support Research at the John Wayne Cancer Institute by Shopping at Ralph's

Ralph’s Grocery Company has designated The John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica a beneficiary of its community contribution program.

Shoppers just need to register online and use their club card every time they shop, and 1 to 4 percent of their eligible purchases will be contributed to The John Wayne Cancer Institute for cancer research.

To participate, visit, click on “Community Contribution” and then “Participant.” Fill in The John Wayne Cancer Institute’s non-profit organization No. 80449, your Ralph’s Club Card number and your contact information.

Those who use their phone number at check-out instead of a club card can call 1-800-660-9003 to get their card number. If you don’t have a club card, apply for free at any Ralph’s store.

Since 1981, the John Wayne name has been committed by the Wayne family to groundbreaking cancer research and education in memory of their father, who died of cancer.

The John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John’s Health Center has received worldwide acclaim for advances in melanoma (skin cancer), breast and colon cancer as well as for immune therapy of cancer. Other areas of research include prostate and liver cancer.
