Our financial assistance comes in the form of cash and non-cash donations to cancer patients and their family, and equipment to hospitals and hospices.
The Foundation accepts donations of:
Gift Cards (pre-paid credit cards for gas, gift cards to Grocery Stores, Target and Walmart and gift cards to major drugstore chains)
If you would like to donate medical furniture or equipment, please contact the Foundation at (315) 339-5993. IRS Publication 526 outlines what types of donations can be deducted and how to claim a deduction.
We provide financial assistance with expenses not covered by insurance, such as:
utility and phone bills
transportation costs/hotel costs
medically necessary equipment and supplies - The Foundation does not provide assistance for non-traditional treatment supplements like herbs, etc.
Assistance will be paid directly to the utility company or vendors to ensure proper use of funds.
If you are a hospital, treatment facility, or hospice in need of equipment, please complete a Grant Application and send the application to us. The application can be found here.
If a patient or family needs additional help, we have established a resources page. This page will provide direct links to the top cancer centers, the American Cancer Society, Hospices, Palliative care, and caregiver support services. Should you need further assistance, please contact our Foundation office.
