Support Our Greatest Need and Impact

Bold Science Needs You

Your unrestricted gift fuels vital research, vigorous science, and a commitment to cures. 

Unrestricted Gifts Go Right To Work

When you donate flexible funds, you ensure that we can provide the space, resources and stability our scientists need to work relentlessly, every day, to stop cancer and infectious disease and save lives. From faculty recruitment and critical scientific priorities to center-wide research services, your support fuels mission-critical expenses and accelerates groundbreaking research.

Your Donation Makes Innovation Possible

Hutch researchers are proud to be among the top recipients of federal funding. Yet only 8% of all federal grant applications are successful — and this funding continues to shrink. More importantly, federal funds don’t often support new or early-stage research: the bold, fearless ideas that lead to breakthroughs. That’s where you come in.

Your unrestricted contribution:

  • Allows Hutch scientists to move faster, pursue uncharted paths and follow science where it leads. 
  • Seeds early research, ensuring that promising ideas get traction.
  • Jumpstarts work by early-career researchers, whose fresh ideas can lead to new paradigms in science.
  • Nurtures new ideas until they’re big enough to attract federal and industry funding, leveraging your gift into millions more for lifesaving science.

The very ideas that could save our loved ones need all of our help to reach patients. Your support makes the difference.

Your unrestricted gift fuels vital work at Fred Hutch.

“If you're looking at risk-reward, there's no greater reward than providing and prolonging human life and ending suffering. …We need philanthropy to give the Hutch the freedom to experiment, to look around the corners at other ways of approaching this disease.”

— Mark Fleischauer, member, Fred Hutch Board of Trustees

Going Beyond What We Know

“It's actually the risky projects which have the bigger chance of completely changing paradigms. There are multiple labs at the Hutch where they're changing textbook definitions about what we know about biology, and that's bound to have a profound impact on how we understand life and how we practice medicine.”

— Dr. Harmit Malik, Professor and Associate Director, Basic Sciences Division, Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator
