The Markey Cancer Foundation is the fundraising and gift-receiving organization for the Markey Cancer Center. The Markey Cancer Foundation is a 501c3, not-for-profit, community-based organization that has raised more than $65 million to date to provide the facilities and to support the programs of the Markey Cancer Center. The foundation works with the cancer center to offer donors a variety of gift options, including planned gifts.
Your donations have long been the cornerstone of our progress. Gifts from individuals and organizations to the Markey Cancer Foundation are used to:
- Advance cancer research programs and promising young researchers.
- Foster innovative patient care.
- Purchase state-of-the-art scientific equipment.
- Endow chairs and professorships to recruit and retain exceptional doctors at the Markey Cancer Center.
The University of Kentucky can receive gifts on behalf of the Markey Cancer Center. Gifts that support research may qualify for matching funds from various sources, directly doubling the impact each gift can have.
