NFCR Legacy Society

The NFCR Legacy Society represents an esteemed group of donors who have given a planned gift to NFCR.

These generous and thoughtful supporters are concerned about the more than 200 different types of cancers that affect families, friends, and others. They will be contributing to advanced preventive and diagnostic techniques, better treatments, and cures through NFCR's innovative cancer research programs. A gift through your estate or other means can provide much-needed funds for future research projects. Gifts can be made in any amount you choose. Gifts of $50,000 or more can be used to establish a named fund designated to research a specific cancer type or some other aspect of cancer research that is of particular interest to you.
