Although our giving page is no longer active, you can still donate. If you would like to provide any additional support, please make a gift here.
Each year, we host an annual ladies-only dance as a way to promote breast cancer awareness and raise dollars that give back to a cause Jill was so passionate about. This page has been set up as a way for anyone who isn't able to attend this year's dance to still donate to Jill's fund. We hope you'll continue to support The Jill Vanuch Breast Cancer Research Fund, which was created as a way to honor Jill's legacy while still raising money for breast cancer research.
An endowment fund is a restricted fund - meaning only a portion of the interest earned from the dollars in the fund can be spent, not the principal that anchors the endowment. As the fund is accruing interest, the money in the fund will continue to accumulate (as only a small portion of the interest will be used). With this style of fund, the dollars will never run out, and the Jill Vanuch Endowment Fund will live on forever in her memory!
The creation of this fund is something that will make a lifelong impact to breast cancer patients and families; it may help fund new pieces of technology or equipment for better breast cancer care, create further advancements in breast cancer research, help provide physician education and training, provide genetic testing and counseling to patients and enable us to provide better support to them as well. We hope that with the creation of the Jill Vanuch Endowment Fund for Breast Cancer Research at The James, it will get us one step closer to creating a cancer-free world!
Thank you for your support!
