HOW TO SUPPORT KIDNEYCAN
KidneyCAN is the voice of patients, caregivers, doctors, and researchers. We advocate year-round for federal funding for research. With your support, our community is accelerating cures for kidney cancer.
Our work has led to $185 million research dollars since 2016; however, KidneyCAN is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and does not receive any funding through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) or KCRP (Kidney Cancer Research Program).
Our work never stops or slows down. With the support of our donors, KidneyCAN makes a difference every day in the lives of people affected by kidney cancer.

GIFTS OF STOCK
If you have stock that you’ve owned for more than a year, check with your financial advisor to see if giving stock will provide you with greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to KidneyCAN or email us for further information.
Giving Tuesday was founded in 2012 with a simple idea: setting aside one day specifically for doing good. It’s held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. In the last decade, nonprofits around the world have organized giving campaigns on this day to help their supporters understand their needs and make an impact through giving.
We at KidneyCAN use Giving Tuesday as an annual opportunity to raise awareness for kidney cancer. We know that makin progress toward cures depends on the generosity of our supporters, and we spend the day providing education and support for patients and caregivers.
If you would like to organize a Giving Tuesday campaign to support KidneyCAN, please let us know! We’d be happy to provide you with resources and information to get started.
