How You Can Help

Advancements in the fight against melanoma requires time and money. Every gift, regardless of size, is important. Together we can make a difference.

Gifts are critically needed to fund the following:

  • Program Support - gifts for program support enable the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center to purchase small equipment, provide seed money to fund grant applications, and also support important research projects.
  • Endowed Faculty Positions - endowed professorships and chairs – the most prestigious faculty appointments within the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center – enable Penn State Hershey to attract and retain the best and the brightest faculty and provide the critical resources necessary to advance their scientific pursuits. Sustained support for the holders of these important positions will help the Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center's efforts to fight this disease by accelerating research and advancing treatments and clinical interventions.
  • Research and Clinical Fellowships - research and clinical fellowships at the Penn State Hershey Melanoma Center foster innovation and discovery while offering promising graduate and medical students and postdoctoral fellows unique opportunities to develop their skills and become tomorrow's leading melanoma specialists.
