Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes. All gifts are tax-deductible subject to the limits allowed by the Internal Revenue Service. We will provide you with the necessary documentation for tax purposes.
How do I give my gift in honor or memory of someone?
Any gift may be given in memory or honor of a loved one simply by including the name of the honoree and the contact information of the person or family to be acknowledged. If you make a tribute/memorial gift through online giving, be sure to indicate the honoree’s information in the comments section at the bottom of the form.
I can only make a small gift at this time. Will it still help make an impact?
Every gift makes a difference. Small gifts have a cumulative effect that can be significant in helping fund cancer research. This snowballing effect can help secure larger research grants, which means that your gift can have an impact many times over.
