Your donation this holiday season can give kids battling cancer HOPE.
This fiscal year, we donated $1.2 million to our research and have three upcoming projects for 2017 focusing on Brain Tumors, Ewing Sarcoma and a drug combination with the promise to treat multiple types of pediatric cancer. We are a proud 4-Star charity by Charity Navigator and given a perfect 100% score for our financial health and accountability and transparency. You can trust your gift will directly impact children fighting for their lives. Your donation today gives courageous kids who are battling cancer the most precious gift of all this holiday season: Hope for a shining future.
If you are 70½ or older and required to make a minimum distribution from your IRA, you can make a direct gift to our organization from your retirement account of up to $100,000 and not have to report the IRA distribution as taxable income on your federal income tax return.
There’s no charitable deduction for the IRA distributions. However, not paying tax on otherwise taxable income is the equivalent of a charitable deduction. Please communicate directly with us (813-269-0955) for further instructions on how to make this contribution directly from the IRA administrator or trustee so it qualifies as a direct distribution.
