Ensuring the Foundation's Future


Ensure the Foundation’s Future

Planned Giving

You can support CCF in a variety of ways, including through your estate. Including CCF in your estate plan will not only assist you in reaching and achieving your own philanthropic and charitable giving goals, but it will also allow CCF to continue its mission of financially assisting cancer patients and funding cancer research.

A Gift in Your Will

Whether you designate a specific amount or leave a percentage of your estate, your legacy gift will empower the CT Cancer Foundation’s continued work.

Non-Cash Assets

Donating certain non-cash assets like art or real estate can provide significant tax benefits while advancing CCF’s mission.

Beneficiary Designations

Your retirement plans, life insurance policies, and annuities can all help bring healing to families in need.

Qualified Charitable Distributions

If you are 72 or older, you can give up to $100,000 per year from your IRA, allowing you to exclude the amount of your RMD from your income, even if you don’t itemize your taxes each year.

Fund the CCF Center

The CCF Center sets the stage for the Foundation’s future, providing infrastructure to enhance and grow fundraising opportunities. The Center houses a Hall of Fame exhibit, Art Gallery, and Development Office. It will exemplify our founding values— to preserve and promote respect, sportsmanship, social justice and excellence. Year-round programs facilitated in our Center will be inclusive, culturally diverse and educational with luminaries in sports, media, and corporate leaders. Programs will include seminars that teach lessons in leadership, author discussions, panel discussions on sports, social and medical topics, and a variety of other special workshops.

The Connecticut Cancer Foundation offers numerous naming opportunities that provide a special way for donors to leave a permanent mark on helping cancer patients in CT. By placing your name or the name of someone special on the CCF Center, Fine Art Gallery, or Hall of Fame Walkway, your gift becomes an enduring symbol of your connection to the Connecticut Cancer Foundation and its mission.

Naming opportunities are available for the CCF Center at all levels. Contact for more information.

Fund the Endowment

The endowment fund of permanent duration is non-restricted at this time and invested to further CCF’s mission of long-term financial sustainability. A charitable gift to our endowment fund today will fund our good work now and in the future.
