Ways To Give

Cancer research matters to everyone who envisions a world immune to cancer. Whether you’re an individual, a company, or someone honoring a loved one’s memory, your support plays a vital role. 

In our quest to conquer cancer, immunotherapy research guides us toward life-saving breakthroughs. Each donation is a step closer to a future free from the burden of this disease and hope prevails. Your contributions fuel therapies and scientific breakthroughs that provide fresh hope to cancer patients, enhancing the effectiveness of treatments while minimizing invasiveness. 

Our immune system is the greatest weapon we have in the fight against cancer. Immunotherapy is a powerful treatment and taps into the remarkable precision, adaptability, and memory of the immune system to effectively combat cancer cells. This approach ensures the targeting of cancer cells while sparing healthy ones, adapts to evolving tumors, and retains the ability to recognize and eliminate cancer even in case of recurrence. That’s why supporting cancer immunotherapy research is vital to advancing these life-saving therapies.

Unlock the Power of Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-advised funds (DAFs) are a powerful tool in the world of philanthropy. These strategic accounts provide a flexible and impactful way to contribute to the causes that matter most to you and often come with valuable tax benefits. By establishing a DAF, you maximize your impact on cancer research and simplify your giving process. 

Donate on Behalf of Others

Giving in honor of someone, celebrating life milestones, and other special occasions are all meaningful ways to make a difference. It’s a gift that goes beyond the moment, contributing to life-saving cancer immunotherapy research. 

  • In Honor of Loved Ones: Honoring the memory of a loved one or celebrating their journey is a heartfelt gesture. Your donation, in their name, is a lasting tribute that fuels the fight against cancer.
  • Weddings and Special Occasions: On one of life’s most joyous occasions, consider gifting your guests with a charitable donation on their behalf. It’s a worthwhile way to share your celebration’s impact and make a difference. 

Companies That Care

Companies, both large and small, have the power to be agents of change

 for progress in cancer research. Their support not only fuels groundbreaking research but also sets an example for employees and partners alike. Here’s why corporate involvement matters:

  • Amplifying Impact: Many forward-thinking companies allocate philanthropic funds through employer matching gift programs. With over 20,000 companies nationwide that offer matching gifts, there’s a good chance your employer participates in such a program. These initiatives allow employees, retirees, spouses, and directors to contribute to nonprofit organizations like CRI. 
  • Embracing Workplace Giving: CRI proudly participates in workplace giving programs through associations like the Community Health Charities of America and the United Way. These platforms simplify the process of making automatic charitable contributions, benefiting both CRI and participating employees.

Creating a Lasting Legacy

Planned giving offers a meaningful way to leave a lasting legacy in the fight against cancer through options like bequests and IRA rollovers.

If you’re interested in this impactful form of giving, consult with your attorney and tax advisor to formalize your will or discuss other planned giving strategies. Additionally, if you are  70 1/2 or older, you can make tax-free gifts from your retirement savings or IRA, directly benefiting cancer immunotherapy research while enjoying financial advantages.
