Your Donations to Sarcoma Research Make A Difference!
The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative is a small, dedicated organization. We maintain an extremely low overhead. Thus, 97-98% of your donation (after credit card processing fees) will be used for sarcoma cancer research.
Making an Online, Donation
Secure credit card donations can be made using the donation button to the right. Credit card processing is provided by WePay, which charges a 2.9% + 30¢ fee. These donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by United States law, and donors should print the payment confirmation page or e-mail receipt for tax purposes.
Targeting and Dedicating an Online Donation
Donations can be targeted toward research on a specific type of sarcoma, and they can be made in someone's honor or memory. You will have the opportunity to enter these details while making your online donation.
Mailed donations incur no processing fees. To donate by check, please make the check out to "FJC/Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative" and mail it to:
The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative
17 Bethea Drive
Ossining, New York 10562-1620
If applicable, please specify the person's name and/or the specific sarcoma you are targeting on the "memo" line of the check. FJC will send a letter for IRS tax purposes acknowledging donations of $250 and above. For donations under $250, the IRS will accept a copy of your check as sufficient for tax purposes.
