Battle Trust

The generosity of Battle Trust donors drives significant progress. About half of all people with cancer are facing a rare cancer, but research on these diseases is drastically underfunded. Your support helps fill that gap, directly funding lifesaving studies and clinical trials led by Memorial Sloan Kettering.

10,000 Annual Gift

Gifts of $10,000 or More

Initiated in 2016, the Battle Trust is a core group of leadership donors. Individuals, families, and foundations may direct their support to Cycle for Survival’s general fund or to a specific participant or team. With every dollar, Battle Trust donors give MSK doctors and scientists the power to pursue bold, new ideas that may not otherwise receive the funding they need to get off the ground. In recognition of your leadership giving, you will receive exclusive impact updates on the scientific advances you make possible.

Leaders Circle

The Leaders Circle is foundational to Cycle for Survival’s impact and progress. Contributions made by Leaders Circle members amplify every dollar raised towards achieving Cycle for Survival’s mission, accelerating research and bringing new and better treatment options to people with rare cancers around the world.

$30,000 Gift

Pledges of $30,000 or More

Members make a multi-year financial commitment that sustains promising current investigations and secures future research opportunities for Memorial Sloan Kettering doctors and scientists. Leaders Circle members have a deep understanding of the urgent need for research and innovations. Their contributions not only as philanthropists, but as leaders in our community and champions of Cycle for Survival’s mission, are essential to the movement to beat rare cancers.
