Thank you for visiting the giving section of our website. Whether you are a dedicated supporter or are considering making your first gift, I hope the information presented here will confirm the impact of your support in helping our scientists make breakthrough discoveries and our physicians provide personalized, compassionate care.
I am inspired by each and every gift the Comprehensive Cancer Center receives. Many are tributes, in honor or memory of a loved one who has fought hard against the disease or worked tirelessly to support the Center. Some are from grateful patients who choose to give back to the physicians who provided their care. These gifts put a face on the disease and underscore the importance of patient-centered care and personalized treatment programs.
Other gifts, such as endowments and program support funds, are long-term investments in the Cancer Center. These gifts help ensure the continuation of cutting-edge research—research that is helping to eliminate cancer as a major public health problem.
Still other gifts are in the form of corporate partnerships, reflecting the importance of our work to the people we serve. Our corporate partners not only provide financial support, but they also act as ambassadors, helping spread the message of progress being made at the Cancer Center as we move ever closer to the promise of a cure.
I am extremely grateful to all the individuals, organizations and corporations who help us continue our life-saving work. Thank you for your support as we work to conquer a disease that touches us all.
