Ways to Give

NCCN Foundation® is a 501(c)3 organization founded by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®)—a not-for-profit alliance of leading cancer centers devoted to patient care, research, and education—to empower people living with cancer and advance oncology innovation.

Your Support of Cancer Patients is Needed Now More Than Ever!

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed every aspect of our lives. Cancer screenings have fallen off dramatically. Although the overall number of cancer cases has not changed, the total number of cancer treatments is down. And yet, cancer won’t wait for the pandemic to end. And neither should you! 

Donate now to support the critical programs funded by NCCN Foundation! More than ever, cancer patients, family members, and other caregivers need critical information to help them to speak with their care team. They need expert guidance to make informed decisions about their care.

Your gift WILL make a difference in cancer patients’ lives!

Planned Giving
Bequest Language

A gift to the NCCN Foundation in your will or revocable trust enables you to support our mission and make a difference in the lives of future generations. A bequest:

  • Is easy to arrange.
  • Will not alter your current lifestyle in any way.
  • Can be easily modified to address your changing needs.


Designating Your Support for the NCCN Foundation

The greatest need for gifts to the NCCN Foundation is support for growth and updating of the NCCN Guidelines for Patients library. To apply your gift to the Patient Guideline library, please designate your bequest gift to the NCCN Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with EIN 27-1536314, indicating that you would like to support the Patient Guidelines library.


Sample Gift Language for Your Will or Revocable Living Trust

Residual Gift Language

A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are paid.

I give and devise to the NCCN Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with EIN 27-1536314 located in Plymouth Meeting, PA, all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).


Specific Gift Language

Naming the NCCN Foundation as a beneficiary of a specific amount from your estate is easy.

I give and devise to the NCCN Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with EIN 27-1536314 located in Plymouth Meeting, PA, the sum of $___________ (or asset) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).


Contingent Gift Language

The NCCN Foundation can be named as a contingent beneficiary in your will or personal trust if one or more of your specific bequests cannot be fulfilled:

If (insert name) is not living at the time of my demise, I give and devise to the NCCN Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with EIN 27-1536314 located in Plymouth Meeting, PA, the sum of $ _______ (or all or a percentage of the residue of my estate) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).


Retirement-Plan Beneficiary Language

You may name the NCCN Foundation as a beneficiary of your IRA or other qualified retirement benefits. Donors should consult with their tax advisor regarding the tax benefits of such gifts.

Naming the NCCN Foundation as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement-plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh, or profit-sharing pension plan will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings. It can be costly to pass such assets on to heirs because of heavy tax consequences.

By naming the NCCN Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, the donor maintains complete control over the asset while living—but at the donor's death the plan passes to support the NCCN Foundation free of both estate and income taxes.

Making a charitable gift from your retirement plan is easy and should not cost you any attorney fees. Simply request a change-of-beneficiary form from your plan administrator. When you have finished, please return the form to your plan administrator and notify the NCCN Foundation. We can also assist you with the proper language for your beneficiary designation to the Foundation.


Customized Language

If you or your attorney would like the NCCN Foundation to provide you with customized beneficiary language that is specific to your goal and interest, please contact us at donations@nccnfoundation.org.
