Giving to the Johnson Cancer Research Center


Give to the Johnson Cancer Research Center here. After providing your gift and payment information, you’ll be able to select the JCRC as the recipient.

The following opportunity for philanthropic investment will help create and sustain success in the Johnson Cancer Research Center: 

Cancer Research Fund F19300

This fund supports research and educational activities associated with cancer, including faculty research seed grants, equipment,  student stipends and travel to collaborate or present research.

Reasons to give

Find out more about why the Johnson Cancer Research Center needs your support and what funding areas are current priorities:

Centers of Excellence in Cancer Research

Your gift will help advance the Centers of Excellence initiative to develop multi-disciplinary teams to attack cancer. These teams will have the preliminary data and well-established working relationships to convince National Institutes of Health and other funding organizations that they are ready to diagnose, treat and cure cancer.

Innovative Research Awards

Innovative Research Awards support pilot studies that are expected to lead to major, new, externally-funded projects and have great potential to make a significant impact on K-State’s cancer research success. Supporting these early steps toward garnering extramural funding is critical, as the cancer research center is not in a position to provide the central support for all cancer research at K-State.

Equipment Awards

New technology and equipment can be crucial to modern research, yet funds for this purpose are often lacking. The center helps purchase high-impact equipment that will be used by large numbers of cancer research faculty and serve K-State.
