Where Your Gift is Needed

Your support is essential to advancing the work of the Hollings Cancer Center.  Whether your commitment is to research, patient care, education, prevention or outreach, there is a program at Hollings Cancer Center that needs additional support.  The most common giving opportunities are outlined below for your information. However, if you do not see the giving focus you are most interested in supporting, please do not give up. Just contact us, and we will help you to ensure your gift is designated to work you are most passionate about supporting. 

Unrestricted Gifts

Without a doubt, an unrestricted gift is the single best way to help the Hollings Cancer Center.

The Hollings Cancer Center is a complex organization with a large number and variety of support needs. Although directed giving is always helpful and appreciated, an unrestricted gift allows the Center, rather than the donor, to direct the gift in ways that the Center feels are in its best interests. The gift can be used immediately or it can be invested, using the proceeds over time.

An unrestricted gift provides the Center maximum flexibility in leveraging your generosity to support the Center's overall mission and vision.

Hollings Cancer Center Cancer Research Gifts
