Gifts of Business Interests

Innovative Philanthropy for Business Leaders


MSK is offering a new philanthropic opportunity for venture capitalists and fund managers to make an impact on cancer research.

As your money grows, so does your impact.

We invite you to participate in MSK’s new giving opportunity by pledging (non-binding) a percentage of interest in your investment fund. Each time your fund yields distributions, you will help transform cancer research and care for people and families worldwide.

How it works

To make a gift, you contribute a percentage of your funds’ interests to a donor-advised fund (DAF), and then recommend the DAF make a grant to MSK. 

Why this is a smart way to support MSK

  • Make more of an impact by donating assets directly to a DAF instead of liquidating and taking an offsetting deduction. You can be more generous without spending more.
  • Receive a current-year tax deduction
  • Reduce or eliminate capital gains tax

This is one of two new programs to help business leaders make an impact by supporting Memorial Sloan Kettering. By donating a gift of business interests, you will automatically become part of the MSK Innovators Pledge community. As an MSK Innovator, you will be invited to join networking events and other opportunities to hear breaking news in cancer research from the world’s top experts. Learn more about the Innovators Pledge.

Gifts of business interests can fulfill multiple philanthropic and financial goals. Please consult your tax advisor to navigate your personal situation.
