Donor-Advised Funds

Many Cancer Research Institute donors choose to give through donor-advised funds (DAFs).

Donor-advised funds allow individuals or organizations to create a special account to manage their charitable donations. Philanthropists like you open an account and make tax-deductible contributions to a DAF. You then recommend grants from the DAF to the charities of your choice. The DAF sponsor, generally a nonprofit financial institution, handles all the administrative details, and you can remain completely anonymous if you wish.

Once your DAF approves your recommendation, it will make a grant to the Cancer Research Institute via check or wire transfer. Please note that CRI cannot provide you with a receipt for tax purposes. Your DAF issues a tax receipt with your deposit.

If you have an account with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, Greater Kansas City CF or BNY Mellon, use the widget below to process your gift recommendation with the secure DAFDirect link. To make a donation from other DAFs, please speak to the sponsoring organization of your Fund. Thank you for your recommendation!

Frequently asked questions

Who can donate to CRI?

Anyone who has an interest in helping to advance the fight against cancer is encouraged to donate to CRI. Individuals can make cash donations and also include CRI in their estate planning or planned givingCorporations and foundations also can make donations.

Are there tax benefits for donating to CRI?

CRI is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, so your donations are deductible for federal or state tax purposes as allowed by law. Planned giving, which can encompass bequests and gift annuities, may offer other tax or financial planning advantages as well.

In 2020, U.S. taxpayers can take advantage of new charitable giving incentives in the U.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Taxpayers who do not itemize their returns may receive a tax deduction of up to $300 for cash donations to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Taxpayers who itemize returns may now deduct up to 100% of their Adjusted Gross Income on cash donations. Corporations may now deduct up to 25% of taxable income. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
