Gifts for the Philanthropist


As non-profit Cookies for Kids’ Cancer reports, less than 4 percent of the National Cancer Institute’s budget goes to all childhood cancers combined. The statistics surrounding pediatric cancer remain unacceptable: 13,500 children are diagnosed each year in the U.S. alone. Only four of the dozen most common types of childhood cancers have average survival rates better than 80 percent, two-thirds of patients develop long-term side effects (often life-threatening), and for kids in America, cancer is the number one cause of death by disease. Funding for desperately needed research is the one thing that can change this and help our children. You can buy a package of (affordable) gourmet cookies to support the cause, but if you’re in a position to go all out—why not fund one of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer’s absolutely essential research grants?


A scholarship in someone’s name makes an extraordinarily meaningful gift because it lives in perpetuity. You’ll need at least $20,000 to endow a $1,000 annual scholarship (though that can vary depending on the school). For universities, contact the Development office directly—for high schools, try setting something up through a community foundation who can administer the logistics on your behalf.
