Komen Maryland Announces New Gift Options

Thank you for your support of Susan G. Komen Maryland. During this season of giving—and all year long—we depend on your generosity to fund critical local breast health programs and groundbreaking research.

 

I am pleased to announce that now when you make general donations to Komen Maryland, you have a choice on how those funds will be used in the fight against breast cancer.

 

These new choices have been created based on your feedback and the needs in the local breast cancer community.

 

Unrestricted Fund:

Unrestricted giving is critical to the stability of every non-profit.  At Komen Maryland, these funds provide flexibility in supporting our statewide breast cancer programs, lifesaving research into all aspects of breast cancer, education, public policy advocacy and more.

 

Patient Navigation Fund: 

This fund will be used solely to support trained individuals who provide critical information, education, and practical patient guidance through the complex health care landscape.

 

Patient Assistance Fund:

This fund will be restricted to clinical trials, financial assistance, therapies, transportation, and help with daily living.

 

You will see this new giving choices on our online donation form.

 

Unrestricted giving will always be the foundation for our giving through our many revenue generating events (walks, Promise Ride, etc). Event gifts will remain unrestricted.

 

We hope you will consider a gift to Komen Maryland during the holiday season but more importantly, we hope you will continue your support annually for many years to come.

 

Sincerely,

 

Michael Jessup, Executive Director
Susan G. Komen Maryland
