Planned Giving

Legacy gifts allow you to take care of your family, provide for gifts to loved ones, and include a charitable gift for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. We can help you find the best way to make your gift, and perhaps help you to make a larger gift than you thought possible.

Endowments

Strong endowment funds keep Roswell Park's research and clinical programs moving forward. An endowment fund is like a permanent savings account. The principal of the original contribution is never spent, so the fund will always exist. A portion of the endowment’s earnings is distributed, while the rest is reinvested to ensure future financial growth.

These resources allow doctors and scientists to develop and manage their programs and to take advantage of emerging opportunities. Review a full list of our endowments in our annual report.

If you are interested in setting up an endowment fund, or contributing to an existing endowment fund, call the Office of Planned Giving at 716-845-1338.
