Hope Invests In Members’ Professional Growth

We’re pleased to support SWOG members and collaborators through enhancements to meeting sessions. This fall, seventeen committees are utilizing our meeting support program for working group gatherings both on- and off-site, and dozens of travelers will be supported through Hope funding, including the SWOG Board of Governors and CRA/nurse travel support programs.

These and all of our programs are made possible with generous donor contributions – we’re grateful for this support and ask that you consider giving today.

Donor advised funds (DAFs) offer a flexible, convenient and cost-effective way to align your giving with your values and priorities. A DAF is a giving account established at a public charity or charitable sponsor. To establish a DAF simply give a gift of cash, stock, real estate or other financial vehicle to the charitable sponsor of your choice. Charitable sponsors include public charities, community foundations, and charitable funds that are associated with an investment firm.

When you make a charitable gift to your DAF, you receive an immediate tax deduction. You can then recommend donations, referred to as ‘grants,’ from your DAF to your favorite charitable organizations on your own timetable. The DAF charitable sponsor handles all the paperwork.

To learn more about how you can support The Hope Foundation through your DAF, contact your tax advisor or reach out to us through [email protected]

You Can Provide Critical, Year-Round Support

Two-thirds of 2021 SWOG press releases featured work which had received funding from The Hope Foundation. While SWOG’s work is primarily funded by the NCI, Hope grants often provide key support to further these efforts.

Help sustain SWOG’s critical year-round work with a recurring donation! Initiate your monthly gift today. Gifts of every size are meaningful and make a difference!
