Stomach cancer is still a relatively unknown form of cancer, and it is significantly under-funded. You can help the Gastric Cancer Foundation (GCF) change both of these things. There are numerous ways to get involved with GCF and join in the fight to find a cure for gastric cancer!

Donations to the Gastric Cancer Foundation are made through The V Foundation for Cancer Research and are designated exclusively for the work of GCF. Donations are tax-deductible (Tax ID#13-3705951).

You can use your credit card to make a secure online donation by clicking here. You will be directed to the online donation form.

Please send your donation, along with your contact information to:

Gastric Cancer Foundation
c/o The V Foundation for Cancer Research
106 Towerview Court
Cary, NC 27513

Please make checks payable to “The V Foundation for Cancer Research” and write “Gastric Cancer Foundation” on the memo line.

A contribution in memory or in honor of a loved one is a meaningful way to support the Gastric Cancer Foundation. A contribution to GCF is also a wonderful way to commemorate happy occasions like birthdays, graduations, weddings and anniversaries. If you wish, we will send a personal acknowledgment to the honoree on your behalf. Please provide this information when you make your contribution.

Many companies offer matching gift programs to maximize the impact of your personal contribution. Please check with your company’s Human Resources office to learn about your company’s matching gift program.

It’s easy to create a FirstGiving personal fundraising page in support of GCF. You may choose to create a Memorial or Tribute page in memory of a loved one, or to honor a special person or meaningful occasion. By sharing the link to your page with friends and family, you will increase awareness and encourage secure online donations that will support GCF’s search for a cure for stomach cancer. Click here to get started.

Be creative! Organize and coordinate a local fundraiser to raise money for GCF. Invite your family, friends and colleagues over for a dinner party, host a walkathon or golf event – anything to educate folks about gastric cancer and to build support for GCF! It is easy to create a FirstGiving online fundraising page and make it simple and straightforward for people to support your effort.
