Endowed Gifts

Your Gift Can Last Forever

An endowment gift to the American Institute for Cancer Research today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at AICR. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support and help us continue educating the public about cancer prevention.

Add to an Existing Endowment

Your gift can also support an existing AICR endowment. This type of gift directly supports AICR research grants. There is no minimum gift amount if a donor wishes to contribute to these funds. View our list of endowments.

An Example of How It Works

Couple Smiling Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure AICR continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.

Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to AICR, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our work in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
