Many of the gifts we receive are in memory or in honor of others. These gifts are a meaningful way to pay tribute to an individual, to recognize a birthday, anniversary, holiday or other life event.
We have also benefited from creative gift-giving: performing arts organizations have donated a night’s box office proceeds; individuals have directed gifts to us in lieu of anniversary or birthday presents or to recognize and thank friends and family members who have helped them through the cancer experience. Others have sent gifts to our Center in place of the holiday cards that they traditionally mail to friends and family.
Insights Into Cancer Series lectures may be dedicated to someone. His or her name will appear on the program and in the newsletter when the summary of the lecture is reported. Information also will be provided about the special person during the lecture. Contact the Administrator to arrange for this type of gift (310) 794-1923.
If the gift is in memory or in recognition of someone, please include the name and address of the person who should be notified. A personal acknowledgement will be sent stating that a gift has been received in memory of the individual specified and that it will be used to further the Center’s mission. The amount of the gift will not be disclosed.
A great way to show support to a friend or family member, express gratitude to a clinician or staff member from the Center or to honor a loved one’s memory by increasing cancer awareness is through a personal fundraising page. The easy-to-create page can help you raise funds for the Center’s life-enhancing services, and is dedicated to your cause, event, or occasion. The pages work well for tributes, birthdays and weddings, to name a few. Personal fundraising pages support programs in need at the Center such as mind-body interventions, support groups, educational resources and assistance for patients managing physical appearance changes. Whatever your inspiration, start your page now and make a difference for patients facing cancer and their loved ones.
