All Ways to Give

Donations allow MSK to continue making breakthroughs in cancer research, care, and education. Take a look at all the ways you can make an impact.

Show your love for people and causes

For many, donating is personal. Whatever your motivation, we have many ways to help you make an impact. 

Contribute in honor or memory

You can make several types of contributions in a loved one’s honor or memory. It’s a meaningful way to pay tribute to someone special as well as to donate to cancer research, providing more hope and optimism for the next generation.
Request donations in lieu of flowers
We have language to help you request donations in your loved one’s obituary or memorial information.
Donate to a fundraiser
Thousands of MSK supporters have set up fundraising pages — from crowdfunding to birthday celebrations.
Support an event
There’s a wide range of events, like donation-based yoga classes and bake sales, that you can contribute to.
Give by cancer type
You can designate your donation for a certain type of cancer to accelerate research that can lead to new treatment options and cures.

Maximize your giving

There’s power in numbers. Many life events give you the opportunity to engage your friends and family. Your employer can also help increase your contribution. 

Matching gifts

One of the easiest ways to double your gift is to take advantage of company-matched gifts. See if your employer participates — and if it’s a yes, all you have to do is submit a form. We’ll work with your company to make sure the transfer takes place.
Turn party favors into contributions
Rethink party favors and make donations on your guests’ behalf. Use our form to customize your announcement.
Ask for donations instead of gifts
Celebrating something special? Think about asking for contributions to MSK rather than gifts.

Create a legacy of generosity

Legacy giving, also known as planned giving, allows donors to plan gifts years before they’re shared. If you’re helping a client, take a look at our guide on giving for professional advisors. 

Estate planning

Make an impact that lasts beyond your years by including MSK in your plans. Bequest gifts are made through your will or living trust, giving you the opportunity to leave a legacy you can be proud of.
Life income gifts
Donate to MSK and provide an income for you or your family for a designated period of time.
Donor-advised funds
Recommend a grant through your donor-advised fund to maximize your impact.
IRA-qualified charitable contributions
If you are 70 1/2 or older, you can make a tax-free gift to MSK from your IRA.
Real estate
There are numerous ways to make a gift of real estate — and just as many advantages.

One partnership. Many possibilities.
