At Stupid Cancer, our mission is to build community, improve quality of life and provide meaningful survivorship for anyone affected by young adult cancer. Our charter is to ensure that age-appropriate resources are made available to everyone affected by young adult cancer, enabling them to get past cancer and Get Busy Living.
Stupid Cancer works tirelessly to be the best stewards of the revenue it receives from its supporters and corporate partners. We are as mission-driven as they come and strive to wake up every day knowing we're maximizing our impact to empower young adults affected by cancer.
On behalf of those served through our mission, we thank you for your trust, belief and commitment to our growth, impact and success.
Since 2007, we have raised more than $5M to fight cancer in young adults with 82% of every dollar going directly to supporting our award-winning programs and services.

Planned gifts create opportunities for both our donors and Stupid Cancer.
Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. The correct plan for you balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family and your charitable interests in your overall estate and financial plans.
PLANNED GIVING PROGRAMS LET YOU
• leave a legacy in your name or that of a loved one
• receive guaranteed income through a charitable gift annuity and reduce your taxes
• put assets to work with a charitable remainder trust
• leverage your giving by purchasing a life insurance policy
• provide for your heirs by funding a charitable lead trust
SUGGESTIONS ON A BUDGET
A gift in your will or revocable living trust (known as a bequest) is accomplished simply by including a few sentences in your will or living trust. A gift that provides you with income for life. Through a life income gift, you provide us with assets. In return, we agree to provide you, and other individuals if you choose, with income for life. After your lifetimes, we use the remaining balance to carry out our mission. A gift of your IRA or retirement plan assets. You can name Stupid Cancer as the primary or contingent beneficiary on the plan's beneficiary designation form.
IRA ROLLOVER EXTENDED
The $700 billion Financial Rescue Package (H.R. 1424) signed into law by President Bush includes a two-year extension of the IRA Rollover provision. The provision will be made retroactive to Jan. 1, 2008, and will apply to gifts made from that date through Dec. 31, 2009. The provision exempts from taxable income any funds transferred ("rolled over") from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to a charitable organization. The following limitations apply:
• the donor must be age 70 or older
• the cap on annual IRA rollovers is $100,000
• contribution must be a direct gift as opposed a specifically planned donation
