Support the Research

100% of your ACGT donation goes directly to researchers discovering new ways to treat and defeat cancer. (A separate fund covers administrative and fundraising expenses so yours don’t have to!)

Donate Now

One-time or Once-a-Month

Make a general one-time or monthly donation to go toward ACGT Research Fellows discovering new ways to treat and defeat cancer, bringing treatments from the laboratory to patients.

Make a donation towards a specific type of cancer you wish to support. Currently, ACGT is funding Research Fellows working in pancreatic, ovarian and prostate cancers, glioblastoma, sarcoma, melanoma and other solid tumors in metastasis.

Honor Someone You Love

Honor a loved one, a friend, a family member or colleague with a donation in their name. ACGT will notify your special person of this lovely Tribute Gift.

Instead of Receiving, How About Giving?

Your Birthday is the perfect opportunity to celebrate YOU while encouraging others to help advance new therapies for people living with cancer. Donate your birthday, anniversary, graduation or other milestone occasion by asking friends and family to make donations to ACGT in your honor. ACGT can easily provide you with a complete listing of those who have participated in celebrating You!

Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund is a simple, flexible and tax-efficient way to give to your favorite charities. If you already have a donor advised fund, or you are considering setting one up, you can designate ACGT as one of your ongoing beneficiaries. There are many donor advised funds in the marketplace today —  Fidelity Charitable, Jewish Communal Fund, JP Morgan Private Bank, and hundreds of others. Find one that is right for you and learn about the benefits you will receive.

According to Fidelity Charitable:
A donor-advised fund is like a charitable investment account, for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about. When you contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity, like Fidelity Charitable, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity.

To establish ACGT as a beneficiary of your donor advised fund, you will need our tax-identification number: 06-1619523. For further questions, contact our Development Office at info@acgtfoundation.org or (203) 358-5055.

Invest

ACGT seeks investment funding from individuals, corporations and foundations who share our commitment to the promise of safer cancer treatments through cancer cell and gene therapies. All projects are capitalized at high award levels to facilitate meaningful results. The primary objective of these investments is to firmly establish feasibility and patient safety, and then to expedite the treatments into later stage patient trials. Investor contributions are eligible for tax benefits.
