Join K-State's fight against cancer
The Johnson Cancer Research Center is honored to receive gifts to support K-State’s fight against cancer. One hundred percent of your gift stays at K-State. A remarkable 95% goes directly to cancer research scientists and students, while 5% is used to advance the university as a whole. Your gift, which may be made in memory or honor of loved ones, helps to advance K-State's cancer research programs, update laboratories, and train students to be researchers.
You may give online through the KSU Foundation. You will be taken to the foundation's giving page that automatically selects our center as the recipient of your donation. First, you will be asked to log in, either as a Registered Donor, if you already have a giving account, or as a Guest, in which case you will have to give your name and some contact information.
To support the center's bold new vision to impact cancer, hire a new, world-class director, and become a National Cancer Institute Basic Laboratory Cancer Center, please use this link to make your gift.
