Donate & Change a Life

Be it online through our secure servers or through the mail, it’s easy to make your tax deductible donation to BCAN. Your support allows us to create patient education tools such as our Patient Handbook  that help empower bladder cancer survivors and their families in being advocates for their care. It also helps us in raising the bar in research funding through programs like the Young Investigator Awards and other grants to scientists working toward finding lifesaving treatments for those living with bladder cancer. We are extremely grateful for all our supporters and advocates do in the fight against bladder cancer and for allowing us to continue our mission toward raising awareness and finding a cure.

Thank you for considering a donation to the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network. There are many ways to donate to support our work. The Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network, Inc. (BCAN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation (Federal Tax I.D. #20-2897110)  so donations to BCAN are tax deductible.


Become a Sustaining Donor and pledge a monthly gift to BCAN that is charged to your credit card or deducted from your checking account.  This is the most convenient way to support our work by spreading your gift payments evenly throughout the year.

Honor/Memorial Gifts are a thoughtful way to pay tribute to someone special in your life. BCAN will send a card acknowledging your kind donation to the person (or people) you would like to have notified. To designate a gift, simply complete the section of our online form labeled: “Honor/Memorial Designation” or print and mail the completed form to us.

Invest in BCAN with a Gift of Stock that you have owned for more than one year. These may provide greater tax benefits to you than giving cash! Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to BCAN.  Your charitable income tax donation is equal to the fair market value of the stock.

Planned Gifts can offer many advantages: Reduce estate taxes, Provide a life income stream, Allow you to make a much larger gift than you thought possible, Receive a current income tax deduction, Reduce or avoid capital gains tax.

Donate your vehicle to BCAN. You can donate your used car, truck, van, boat or recreational vehicle to the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network. Call our toll free number (1-855-373-BCAN) or donate online. All vehicles regardless of age or condition are accepted. BCAN works with Melwood, a 501(c)3 organization to provide this service. Simply complete the online donation form and you will get a response with the processing instructions. Click here to donate online.

Workplace Giving is an easy option because BCAN participates in many workplace campaigns, including state, county, city, and corporate giving campaigns! In some campaigns, we can be found under Cancer CURE of America. In others, we are under national charities, or you may want to simply write in “Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network, 4915 St. Elmo Ave., Suite 202, Bethesda, MD 20814” to designate BCAN for your workplace gift.

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) # 71146
