Adopt a Lab

Honor a Faculty Member
A Dana-Farber Chair honors and recognizes a distinguished senior faculty member and provides invaluable financial support to pursue the research and care initiatives that will lead to new discoveries.
Support an Investigator
By supporting an investigator, you can provide a salary in perpetuity to an outstanding scientist or clinical researcher who has shown remarkable promise, creativity, and determination.

Programs: Support Institute Initiatives
Gifts of any size to this fund provide critical resources to the President of the Institute to support the most promising new research initiatives in their earliest stages, and to enhance our total patient care.
Support the many laboratory and clinical research initiatives that take place at the Institute.
Support technology funds to fuel discoveries in research and innovative patient care.
Donors can make a gift to create a current-use fund to address immediate critical needs, or an endowed fund to last forever, adding a permanent legacy. Both current-use and endowed funds may be unrestricted to provide flexible support where it is needed most, or designated to a specific research initiative, patient care program, or disease area.
These funds help Dana-Farber fulfill its commitment to offering truly comprehensive compassionate care, by treating the whole patient — body, mind, and spirit.
Patient assistance funds provide emergency support to alleviate some of the financial burdens families face when a loved one is battling cancer.
