Your year-end donation significantly helps Norris Cotton Cancer Center search for a cure for cancer as well as care for cancer patients with the latest and best treatments.

You can choose to support the Cancer Center's general annual fund or designate your gift to research, patient services, or the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center—among many other critical areas. Visit our giving site for more information.

You can make your gift by check or credit card, online, or through the mail.

The Friends' Gift of Hope Program

Give the "Gift of Hope" by making a gift in honor of someone else. We'll send them a holiday card from the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center letting them know of your generosity.

Special Giving Opportunity

If you are 70½ years old or older, one of the simplest gift options involves your IRA. Until December 31, 2011, you can make a gift up to $100,000 directly to Dartmouth-Hitchcock from your IRA without incurring income taxes on the distribution. This is a limited-time opportunity, and we encourage you to make a gift before the end of the year. For more information about this offer or other planned giving vehicles, please visit our Gift Planning website or call Rick Peck at (603) 653-0735.

In order to qualify for the charitable contribution tax deduction for tax year 2011, checks must be postmarked by December 31, 2011. Credit card gifts can be phoned in to (603) 653-0745 until noon on December 30, 2011. You can make a credit card gift online until 11:00 p.m. on December 31, 2011.

Please take this opportunity to give now to ensure that we can continue to deliver the finest patient-centered care and to develop new knowledge about how to prevent and treat cancer. Please contribute what you can—gifts of any size make a difference—and all gifts are gratefully received.
