WAYS TO GIVE

Be A Part Of The Search For Cure

CR&T is a careful steward of your donation.  On average, 85 cents of every dollar we spend every year goes to research and educational programs.  That means that the lion’s share of your contribution is invested in prolonging and improving patients’ lives. To learn more, read our financial reports.

CR&T-funded researchers are working hard to find new treatments and cures for cancer.  There are many ways that you can help us to keep up the momentum.

Make a General Donation

With your support, we can continue to build the world’s leading center dedicated to myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) research and patient care, fund other cutting-edge research initiatives, and educate patients and their loved ones about the latest treatments and research advances.

You can donate with a credit card online, or send a check payable to Cancer Research & Treatment Fund (or CR&T) to:

Cancer Research & Treatment Fund
500 E. 77th Street, Suite 1001
New York, NY  10162

Memorial and Tribute Donations

Commemorate a milestone or special occasion, or honor the memory of a friend, loved one or colleague with a gift that will have a lasting impact on the lives of patients and families.

Attend an Inspiring Event

Our annual Cancer Survivors Hall of Fame dinner is our signature fundraising event.  This elegant evening brings together courageous cancer survivors and the passionate doctors, researchers and advocates who have contributed to our search for life-saving treatments and cures for cancer. You can purchase a single ticket or fill your own table with friends and colleagues.  Visit our Events section for information about this and other fundraising events. And be sure to sign up for our informational eNewsletter so you won’t miss any opportunity to share a special evening with other supporters who are dedicated to our mission!

Make a Gift of Securities

Your gift of appreciated securities – stocks, bonds, or mutual funds – can provide significant tax savings while helping to support CR&T’s search for cures.  We can receive stock gifts directly through your brokerage account; you receive a charitable income tax deduction, usually equivalent to fair market value as determined under IRS guidelines.  We will sell the stock immediately and apply the net proceeds toward our mission.  Contact Barbara Rosenstein at brosenstein@crt.org, or 212-288-6604 to find out how to donate securities.

Create a Legacy

When you include CR&T in your estate plans, you create a lasting legacy that helps us build a cancer-free future.  It also may have important financial advantages for you and your heirs.

  • Include a bequest to CR&T in your will. Make a gift of a stated dollar amount, specific property, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after distributions to other beneficiaries.  In doing so, you leave a legacy to CR&T, yet preserve and enjoy assets you might need during your lifetime.  Plus, the assets distributed to CR&T are exempt from estate tax.
  • Designate CR&T as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, retirement plan, savings account, or brokerage account. You can designate CR&T as the primary or secondary beneficiary of either 100% or some percentage of the proceeds from your life insurance policy or retirement plan.

Participate in Your Workplace Giving Program

Many companies offer various giving programs that allow you to deduct the amount you specify from your paycheck.

Make a Matching Gift

Be sure to ask if your employer also offers matching gifts, which will increase the value of your donation.  Specify CR&T as your matching gifts recipient.

CR&T is on the list of eligible charities to receive donations via AmazonSmile, which is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop – at no additional cost to you.  The site is the same shopping experience as shopping on Amazon.com.  The difference is, by using AmazonSmile, Amazon as a company will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of your eligible purchases to CR&T.

Simply visit smile.amazon.com on your computer or mobile device.  If you already have an Amazon account, you can use the same account here.  If you don’t have an account, open one that you can use on both sites.  On your first visit to AmazonSmile, select Cancer Research & Treatment Fund Inc. as the charitable organization to receive donations.  Then, every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile going forward will result in a donation to CR&T.  If you already donate to a charity, you can change your charity at any time.  Simply select “Change your Charity” in “Your Account.”  Now you can continue supporting CR&T while you shop!

No matter how you decide to give, your donation will help us fund groundbreaking research aimed at advancing treatments and finding a cure for blood malignancies and other cancers.  Thank you! We recommend that you consult with your tax advisor or planning professional.
