Open disclosure of our financial information is essential for maintaining the trust donors place in the Institute. Since its founding, the Cancer Research Institute has upheld the highest standards of fiscal responsibility and integrity. When you give to CRI, you can be sure your charitable investment will be spent wisely and will make the most impact possible in our efforts to conquer cancer. 

Charity Ratings

Not all charities are equal. Before choosing to donate to an organization, it's wise to research first how your charitable investment will be spent. There are a number of charity "watchdogs", like Charity Navigator, CharityWatch, GuideStar, and the Better Business Bureau, that publish reports on annual charity spending. It's an easy way to check how much an organization spends on its programs versus overhead expenses, and can help you gauge a charity's financial health. CRI consistently receives exemplary marks from these and other watchdog groups.

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 giving. Corporations 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.

Why is CRI a good choice for my charitable support?

Through our strategic programs, CRI is leading global efforts to bring new immune-based treatments to patients sooner. Our focus on immunotherapy – which is applicable in the treatment of almost all types of cancer – means our donors are making an impact in the lives of more cancer patients. We are proud to have one of the lowest overhead expense ratios among nonprofit organizations. Historically, between 85 and 90 cents of every dollar donated to us goes to our research and medical education programs.

How do "charity watchdog" organizations rate CRI?

We consistently earn high marks from charity watchdog organizations, including an A or higher from the American Institute of Philanthropy. We are also a proud member of the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance, the most rigorous evaluator of charity activity with 20 standards of accountability and ethical practice. We have 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest and most utilized evaluator of charities; an A grade from Charity Watch; and a Gold Participant seal from GuideStar.
