Designate memorial gifts from your loved one’s funeral

Friends and family members of a recently deceased loved one may want to honor that person through charitable giving. We appreciate memorial gifts very much, and we thank every donor in writing and notify any specified survivor(s) about the gift (not amount). Learn more about designating memorial gifts to our center.

When gifts are received at the center:

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

Funding is especially needed for:

  • pilot studies expected to lead to major extramural grants and advancement of K-State cancer research
  • undergraduate and graduate student training
  • cutting-edge technology and equipment
