Using Gifts Wisely
UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center directors believe the key to world-class achievement is to focus on three strategic priorities: recruit and retain the best faculty; provide them with the tools to succeed; and support them by funding novel ideas that advance the understanding and treatment of cancer.
We are committed to keeping fundraising and administrative expenses low. The Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation directs 90 percent of total donations to cancer research and cancer-related programs. The remaining 10 percent goes toward administrative and fundraising expenses.
We appreciate that our donors have chosen to make an important investment in us. We use cost-effective tools, such as e-mail and social media, to reach our supporters. We limit direct mail solicitations and print materials so a greater portion of each gift dollar can fund leading-edge cancer research.
