A minimum gift of $100,000 establishes a Named Endowed Fund. You can create the fund in your name or in the name of someone you wish to honor or remember. The Fund can be designated for comprehensive support or priority support based on what is most meaningful to you.

Matching funds can be a powerful tool in helping the Cancer Center leverage your gift. This fund can be used to match donations to establish endowed funds, securing innovative, comprehensive care for patients today and in the future.
An Example of How It Works
Meet Tom and Martha. When they got married and created a will, they included a $75,000 gift to the Foundation. As the family grew to include three children, Tom and Martha decided to revise their gift to ensure their children's future financial security.
They met with their attorney and revised the gift language so that the Foundation received a percentage of their estate, instead of a specific amount. Tom and Martha now rest easy knowing their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
