THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS TO DONATE
At the Rivkin Center, our goal is simple: to help women live longer, healthier lives because cancers are prevented, caught early, or cured. It’s only the support of corporate partners and generous individuals like you that allows us to continue in this resolute effort. With every donation, we come closer to our goal.
We are currently updating our Rivkin Center donation page, but you can donate through our SummeRun & Walk donation page for now. The SummeRun is the Rivkin Center’s signature event raising funds to directly further the mission of the organization.

ATTEND OR VOLUNTEER AT AN EVENT
Each of our signature fundraising events, the Swedish SummeRun & Walk for Ovarian Cancer and the Rivkin Family & Friends Auction, is an annual tradition in the Seattle area. The success of these events depends strongly on the attendance and participation of the community, as well as on volunteer support.
“The Rivkin Center plays an important role in fueling ovarian cancer research and has invested over 13 million dollars in support of original research and young investigators.”
SPONSOR A RESEARCH GRANT IN A LOVED ONE’S HONOR
Medical breakthroughs through research offer the greatest opportunity to advance the knowledge of prevention, early detection, and improved treatment of ovarian cancer. The Rivkin Center model – investing in innovative ideas, attracting the most ingenious research minds, and leveraging funding to help researchers 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. 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.
HONOR HER LEGACY
Award names stay with the investigators throughout their careers, serving as a constant reminder of the power of philanthropy in funding new ideas that may otherwise not progress. Awards named for patients provide a particularly poignant reminder to researchers of the importance of their work, bringing home the vital importance of their efforts to further ovarian cancer research.
For awards named in honor or memory of a loved one, we ask that donors share a photo and brief biography of that person to be shared with the investigator who receives the named award.

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.”
