Champions of Hope

Champions of Hope are individuals and families who uphold the mission of the organization by ensuring help and support are available to others, by making sure resources and actions align with their hearts, by showing their compassion in tangible ways, and by displaying an unyielding promise to support the organization well into the future.

These gifts are financially significant to the giver as well as to Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana.

Champions of Hope Giving Levels

$1,000 – Friend
$2,500 – Companion
$5,000 – Advocate
$7,500 – Caregiver
$10,000 – Guardian

Champions of Hope may choose to make a one-time gift by cash, credit card or stock transfer. With the help of an advisor, it’s also possible to make non-cash gifts from their Donor Advised Fund (DAF) or IRA with a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Finally, they may also choose to make a pledge and then aggregate incremental donations made throughout the year for a cumulative gift of $1,000 or more each year.

Champions of Hope are recognized each year in Cancer Services’ annual report.
