Why Give Wednesday

At the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center, our vision is to eliminate cancer as a major public health problem. If that isn’t reason enough to get you inspired to donate, here’s some motivation:

-Give in honor or memory of a loved one. We find out the impact of this disease when it affects the ones we care about. Financially supporting cancer research is a great way to honor a loved one.
-The UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center has an incredible faculty of 350 physicians and researchers dedicated to being the forefront of improving prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Your donations help ensure the continuation of their cutting-edge research.
-Every dollar stays here in Birmingham, is tax-deductible, and may be designated for the cancer or research area of your choice, or it can be directed to the center’s Fund for Excellence where it will be used for high-priority needs. 
- One of the nation’s leading cancer research and treatment centers, the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center is the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center located in a six-state area that includes Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, South Carolina, and Georgia.
Lastly, by giving to the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center you are supporting a greater philanthropic campaign, which is The Campaign for UAB.  The campaign consists of a $1billion goal and maintains the theme of “Give Something, Change Everything.” The hopeful end result is that UAB be one of the most dynamic and productive universities of the 21st century and attain our vision to be an internationally renowned research university — a first choice for education and health care.
