Donate to Change a Life…Save a Life
The EndBrainCancer Initiative / Chris Elliott Fund believes advocating for patients should not be a financial burden. As a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization, we provide all of our services 100% free of charge. The only way we are able to do this is through the kindness and philanthropic support of our donors. Currently we average more than 7,500 inquiries per month. The need and demand significantly exceeds our current capacity. Your financial support can make a vital difference in the life of a brain cancer patient and his or her family.
Here are a few ways you can work with us and change a brain tumor patient’s life:
- Gifts of Cash
The most convenient method of giving to EBC/CEF is through a check payable to Chris Elliott Fund or through our online donation platform. An online gift is the perfect way to memorialize a loved one or friend who has been affected by a brain tumor. You may direct your gift to a specific CEF program or leave it unrestricted which will allow CEF to use your gift where it is needed most. All cash gifts are tax deductible.
