How to Contribute

If you or someone you know has been touched by ovarian cancer, you know the challenges that have to be faced. Our job, as an organization, is to keep this cause front and center for women, the medical community, the scientific community and the legislators who appropriate funds to support awareness, research and new diagnostics and treatments.

Your contribution will help support all of the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance’s advocacy, education, and awareness programs. Nearly half of our funding comes from individual donors who share our goals in an effort to conquer ovarian cancer.

The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, as defined by the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance’s Tax Identification Number is 31-1581756. See “About Us” for more information on our financial stewardship.
