Whether it’s the approaching end of the tax year or simply the altruism of the season, many donors prefer to make charitable gifts in November and December.
This year, those donors who have a passion for conquering cancer have an added incentive to consider a tax deductible year-end gift to the Conquer Cancer Foundation of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. Thanks to the success of his matching gift challenge in September, Raj Mantena, RPh, is renewing his 2-to-1 matching gift offer in November and December up to $1 million, meaning that all year-end gifts to the Conquer Cancer Foundation will have triple the impact.
Donations to the Conquer Cancer Foundation fuel breakthrough research and education, patient information resources, and programs dedicated to improving the quality of cancer care. Guided by the expertise of ASCO and its membership, Conquer Cancer Foundation programs like the flagship Conquer Cancer Foundation of ASCO Young Investigator Award and Career Development Award are accelerating new discoveries and launching research careers, while ASCO’s Foundation-supported patient education website Cancer.Net shares trusted, oncologist-approved cancer information with millions of patients and their families around the clock.
Whether your passion is improving cancer care internationally, training the next generation of researchers, strengthening prevention efforts, or simply improving the lives of patients with cancer, your gift to the Conquer Cancer Foundation strengthens the field of oncology in the face of new challenges and opportunities and gives our patients hope for a world free from the fear of cancer.
