Take part in the fight against Pancreatic Cancer

Donate Now

Thanks to generous donors like you, we are proud to have donated over $1,500,000 to pancreatic cancer research, but unfortunately there are people still fighting this deadly disease so our fight is not over!

Your donations fund our research, support group, symposium series and other valuable projects in our efforts to end pancreatic cancer and to support those touched by the disease.

Send a message to your Congressman and urge them to make cancer research a national priority.


Leave a Legacy

A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning.

Planned Giving includes:

  • Estate Planning
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • IRA Rollovers

What are the tax benefits of planned gifts?

  • Donors can contribute appreciated property, like securities or real estate, receive a charitable deduction for the full market value of the asset, and pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
  • Donors who establish a life-income gift receive a tax deduction for the full, fair market value of the assets contributed, minus the present value of the income interest retained; if they fund their gift with appreciated property they pay no upfront capital gains tax on the transfer.
  • Gifts payable to charity upon the donor’s death, like a bequest or a beneficiary designation in a life insurance policy or retirement account, do not generate a lifetime income tax deduction for the donor, but they are exempt from estate tax.

Judy Herron and family remembered their "Grams" by walking a 5k after the rain had cleared. Grams was in the hospital the year of the very first Kick It 5k and Judy has participated every year since then. Thank you for sharing your story with us, Judy!
