Battle Trust

Leadership Giving

Rare cancer patients make up about half of all people fighting cancer, but research on these diseases is drastically underfunded, leaving patients with limited or no treatment options. 100 percent of every gift funds life-saving research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering, the world's oldest and largest private cancer center.

Battle Trust

Initiated in 2016, the Battle Trust is a core group of leadership donors who make yearly gifts of $10,000-$99,999. Individuals, families, or foundations may direct their support to Cycle for Survival’s general fund, or to a specific participant or team.

In recognition of your support, you will receive an inside look at Cycle for Survival’s funding allocations, exclusive updates on the latest research, and special event access and recognition.

Cycle for Survival participants who sustain their leadership giving with three-year pledges are recognized in our Battle Trust Leaders Circle. Your commitment inspires the Cycle for Survival community to take action, bringing hope to rare cancer patients and their families worldwide.

Interested in making your dollars go further? Cycle for Survival is a powerful channel through which you can fund a research initiative, leave a legacy, name a space at Memorial Sloan Kettering, or leverage your contribution to make an even greater impact.
