Huntsman Cancer Institute is committed to pushing the boundaries of cancer research and discovering more potential cancer cures—and your support is vital. Huntsman Cancer Institute's mission is to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use that knowledge in the creation and improvement of cancer treatments, to relieve the suffering of cancer patients, and to provide education about cancer risk, prevention, and care.

Donations of appreciated securities—including stocks and bonds, deferred gifts through estate planning, and endowments—are an excellent way for you to provide legacy support to cancer research. These gifts to Huntsman Cancer Foundation (HCF) often provide even greater support than outright cash gifts. They empower us to carry forward with the work you care about, today and far into the future.

Gifts of Stock or Property

HCF welcomes your gift of stock, bonds, or mutual funds. Gifts of long-term appreciated securities offer you an advantageous way to support the work at Huntsman Cancer Institute, and your donation may unlock a charitable income tax deduction or minimize capital gains taxes.

To make a gift of stocks, please download our Stock Donations form and send it to the address indicated on the form either via mail or email.

For more information, email Executive Director of Foundation Operations Jill-Ann Pearl or call her at 801-584-5816.

Endowment Opportunities

Endowments are a way to honor a loved one, a caregiver, or an entire institution. They provide long-lasting support of Huntsman Cancer Institute's commitment to train the next generation of cancer researchers and attract and retain exceptional physicians and scientists. Such gifts generate support in perpetuity for a cancer area or program of your choosing. Endowments can also be directed to the general endowment, where the returns are distributed to Huntsman Cancer Institute's areas of greatest need. Endowments can be established with an outright gift today, a pledge over several years, or through a planned gift. Current endowment opportunities are $500,000 for a professorship, $1 million for an endowed chair, and $1.5 million for a presidential endowed chair.
