TraceyC The Pink Fund

“I’m very excited and humbled by the opportunity to raise funds for such an effective organization providing real help to individual patients in treatment. So much of the philanthropy in this area is directed towards research, and though much needed, this is a niche I feel has a huge impact on helping individuals though a hardship time so they can continue to live life to its fullest after treatment.” – Tracey, Major and Planned Giving Officer

Thank you for your interest in donating to The Pink Fund. Below is some basic information for alternative giving options. Please consider letting us know of your intentions by contacting Tracey at [email protected]

A wonderful way for you to support the mission of The Pink Fund is to leave us a bequest. This is a designation in your will or trust in which you direct a certain amount or percentage of your estate to be gifted to The Pink Fund. This can be in the form of cash, stock or property. Bequests can support the general fund or can be designated to our endowment. Both are amazing ways to leave a legacy to ensure that funds are continually available to provide ongoing, impactful support of the organization well into the future. To leave a bequest to The Pink Fund, please add the following language to your will or trust:

Unrestricted Bequest

I give, devise, and bequeath to The Pink Fund (a) the sum of $___________, or (b) ______% of my estate to be used for the benefit of the mission of The Pink Fund as the organization may determine.

Restricted Bequest

I give, devise, and bequeath to The Pink Fund, (a) the sum of $________ or (b) ______% of my estate to be used for the benefit of The Pink Fund as the organization may determine or (b) for the purpose(s) of _________________________________ or if such use, in the judgment of The Pink Fund is or shall become impracticable or unwise, then for such purpose(s) as the organization shall determine.

You are welcome to designate your bequest to our newly established endowment fund.

The Pink Fund EIN number is 45-0544575.

Because bequests and estate giving are planned gifts, we would love to recognize you now for your future gift intentions. Please consider letting us know of your intentions by contacting Tracey at [email protected] to request our Gift Intention Form.
