Johnson Cancer Research Center

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. 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.

Give online

You can give online through the KSU Foundation. After entering your gift amount, you can dedicate your gift in memory or honor of a person or occasion by noting it in the "Special Instructions" box, along with the name(s) and mailing address(es) of anyone you'd like us to notify about the gift. We do not disclose amount.

Or you can support our Fall 2019 Fighting for a Cure matched-gift campaign. Give here and have your gift doubled by an anonymous donor! This year's campaign will support K-State's Center of Excellence for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

To support the center's bold new vision to have an even bigger impact on cancer and become a National Cancer Institute Basic Laboratory Cancer Center, please give here and specify in "Special Instructions" that you are giving to Fiedler Fund F63872 to support the hiring of a new Johnson Cancer Research Center director.

Mail a gift

When mailing a gift, the donation form on our printable brochure can guide you through the information we need about who’s giving the gift, who it honors/memorializes, and who should receive notification of it. Mail it along with your gift to:

Cancer Research Fund
Kansas State University Foundation
PO Box 9200
Shawnee Mission, KS  66201-1800

When gifts are received at the center:

  • The donor is sent a thank-you letter from the center and a tax receipt from the KSU Foundation.
  • The individual(s) being honored, or another designee named by the donor, is notified of the gift (not the amount).

Funding is especially needed for:

  • Recruiting and hiring a new, world-class director, who will lead us to National Cancer Institute Basic Laboratory Cancer Center designation.
  • pilot studies expected to lead to major extramural grants and advancement of K-State cancer research.
  • cutting-edge technology and equipment.
  • attracting excellent cancer research faculty to K-State.
