PO Box 23827
Tampa, FL 33623-3827


With the power to fuel innovation and discovery in cancer treatments, while also providing financial stability through economic downturns and ebbs in government funding, endowments are another popular option for donors wishing to make a difference for years to come.

Endowed Chairs

A distinguished chair at Moffitt is a prestigious and coveted honor for the recipient, as well as an opportunity for the donor to establish a permanent named legacy at Moffitt. The endowed fund also provides critical annual income to be used by the distinguished chair to support groundbreaking research and treatment in the program he or she leads.

Reserved for the most eminent researchers and clinicians at Moffitt, as determined by the institution, the official title of Distinguished Chair and the use of the funds from the endowment will be awarded ex officio to the faculty member while serving in his or her leadership role. All successors to that leadership role will be accorded the same.

Additional endowment opportunities

Gifts of any size, including bequests, can be directed to the general endowment as unrestricted funds used to support Moffitt’s areas of greatest need. There may also be an existing endowment that reflects your interests and to which you can add your support. Donors who have established endowment funds in the past can continue making gifts to them over time, allowing the fund to grow. The larger a fund is, the more impact it can have each year. You may invest in the Foundation’s endowment to support Moffitt Cancer Center’s critical mission with gifts of cash, property and stock, as well as with funds from bequests, trusts and annuities.

Carefully invested, each charitable contribution can have an impact over time that far exceeds the gift’s initial value with an annual portion of the endowment providing generous and lasting resources.

Memorial or Tribute Gift

When you give a memorial or tribute gift for Moffitt Cancer Center to honor someone special, you’re expressing your love, admiration, and gratitude in one of the most meaningful ways there is. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute, and revolutionize cancer care.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities
You can use stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have appreciated in value to support our shared vision. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
Matching Gift Opportunities

Would you like to maximize the impact of your giving and encourage other supporters to mobilize on behalf of fighting cancer? Consider sponsoring a matching gift challenge. Donate a pool of funds to Moffitt, from which we will match any donation made within a given period of time. In this way, you can double the impact of your giving.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

You can transfer funds from your IRA directly to Moffitt Cancer Center. This is an effective way to have an immediate impact and ensure our work of saving lives today and tomorrow. Here’s how it works:

  • You must be 70 ½ or older.
  • An individual may transfer up to a total of $100,000 per year and a married couple may give up to $200,000 to all organizations.
  • An individual may take a one-time QCD up to $50,000 to fund a charitable gift annuity (CGA) or charitable remainder trust (CRT).
  • Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to Moffitt.
  • Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to Moffitt so it does not count as income for the year.
  • If you are 73 and older, the transfer of funds counts towards your annual Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA.

You can download a sample letter for your IRA administrator here to start the distribution process. You may also be able to request a qualified charitable distribution through your online account portal.

Please note: If you are still working and contributing to a retirement account, this gift could impact your taxable income. Please consult a qualified advisor before making a gift.

Naming Opportunities

Moffitt is committed to recognizing your philanthropic investment in advancing lifesaving care for patients in need. With the expansion campaign come many prominent naming opportunities for donors offering gifts of $25,000 and above. By naming a space or program area, your living tribute can be seen and inspire the patients, families, and team members that your philanthropy is helping.
