Backing Future Medical Breakthroughs

Supporting Cancer Research Institute is made easy through various avenues, with cash donations standing as one of the most common and impactful methods. Whether you choose to write a check, use your credit card, or donate online, your contribution plays a crucial role in advancing our mission.


Opting for a cash donation could be the right fit if:

  • You value a hassle-free way to contribute to CRI's cause.
  • Maximizing your income tax charitable deduction is a priority.
  • Immediate and tangible impact on our initiatives resonates with you.

The process is straightforward: By directly contributing a cash gift to CRI, you not only show your commitment to our mission but also gain an immediate income tax charitable deduction. This deduction offers a rewarding incentive for your generosity while also making a significant contribution to advancing cancer research and treatments. Your financial support becomes an integral part of our journey toward breakthroughs in the fight against cancer.

What is an outright gift of cash?

An outright gift of cash is when you transfer funds to Cancer Research Institute and get nothing of financial value in return. The most common way for donors to make an outright gift is to write a check payable to Cancer Research Institute.

Gift provides immediate support

Unlike some other gift arrangements, your outright gift will provide resources that CRI can put to immediate use. If you prefer to restrict our use of your gift in any way, please contact us so that we can be sure that we can carry out your wishes.

Maximum tax savings

You may deduct the full amount of your donation up to 50% of your adjusted gross income, providing tax savings if you itemize. You may carry forward all of your unused deduction for up to five additional years.

Ways to give cash

Most donors make an outright gift by writing a check payable to Cancer Research Institute and mailing it to us. You may also make a cash gift using your credit card.



Caitlin Morales would like to make an immediate $15,000 gift to Cancer Research Institute. Caitlin could write a check for this amount and earn a charitable deduction equal to $15,000. Alternatively, Caitlin could make a gift using her credit card by calling us on the phone, responding to a mailing, or by donating online through our website. Gifts of checks and gifts made via credit cards are considered cash gifts.


  • Caitlin may deduct up to 50% of her adjusted gross income for her gift of cash, providing tax savings if she itemizes.
  • If Caitlin itemizes deductions but cannot use the entire deduction in the year of gift, she may carry the balance forward for up to five additional years.
  • Assuming Caitlin itemizes deductions and can use her entire income tax charitable deduction of $15,000, she will save her $5,550 (37% tax).
  • Caitlin will gain the satisfaction of making a $15,000 gift to CRI.
