Mary Sorens fundraising for FJC
Your donation funds cutting-edge research that will help doctors to better understand and treat sarcomas.
The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative has funded more than $2.5 million in sarcoma research studies by respected investigators around the world. Recipients of the Initiative’s grants publish both an experimental plan and a study report at SarcomaHelp.org. These reports allow people everywhere to learn from the research that we fund. We are proud of this level of transparency and accountability, and we believe that donors have a right to know how their money is used!
At the Initiative, we also believe that quality research should be funded wherever it is done, and we encourage collaborative efforts between departments, institutions and countries. We hope that the results of these research studies will be stepping stones to finding a cure for sarcoma.
MAKING THE MOST OF DONATIONS: The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative is a small, dedicated organization. We maintain an extremely low overhead of 2-3% per year. Thus, 97-98% of the funds we receive go directly to support sarcoma research. Note: The Razoo service allows us to process credit card donations and fundraise more efficiently. Each donation comes to us after a 4.9% fee is taken for this service.
OUR TAX-EXEMPT STATUS: The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative is a Collective Giving Fund within FJC, a 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit Public Charity and a Foundation of Philanthropic Funds. As such, all donations and gifts made to FJC that are designated for the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative are tax-deductible donations to the extent allowed by United States law.
