SPONSOR A RESEARCH GRANT IN A LOVED ONE’S HONOR
Medical breakthroughs through research offer the greatest opportunity to advance the knowledge of ovarian cancer. The Rivkin Center model — investing in innovative ideas, attracting the most ingenious research minds, and leveraging funding to help investigators secure larger grants — has effectively advanced prevention, early detection, and treatment of ovarian cancer.
Sponsoring this work in the name of someone you love is not only a vivid tribute; it’s also an enormous gesture of hope for the future. Awards named for patients provide a particularly poignant reminder to researchers of the importance of their work, bringing home the vital impact of their efforts to further ovarian cancer research.
We invite donors to review a list of scientists who’ve been selected to receive Rivkin Center funding through our formal grant-making process, choose someone to sponsor for the term of the grant award, and name the award in honor or memory of a loved one.
Grant sponsors receive copies and lay summaries of their grantee’s final report and recent publications relevant to this research.
We award several different kinds of research grants:
- Pilot Study Award (two-year naming: $75,000)
- Scientific Scholar Grant (one-year naming: $60,000)
- Bridge Funding Award (one-year naming: $30,000)
I promised my mom that none of her girls would ever have to go through what she did. While we hated the ovarian cancer diagnosis, mom viewed it as a gift to me and her granddaughters.”
