The significant progress in cancer cause and prevention research that has been made at Science Park is a direct result of the involvement of concerned individuals. Donations will help our scientists continue their search to discover the many causes of cancer, understand its complicated development, and design methods for its prevention and treatment.
Memorials and Honorariums
You may designate your gift to Science Park in memory or in honor of a special person. Please use our Mail-In Donation Form and mail it with your gift to the address below. Checks or money orders should be made payable to MD Anderson Cancer Center. Unless you indicate otherwise, your gift will be designated for research at Science Park.
Undesignated donations made to Science Park are used to support our four essential mission areas — research, prevention, education and capital improvements. Priorities are set by the Director.
You can honor your commitment to cancer research or remember a loved one with a custom engraved brick to be placed in the Science Park Donor Terrace in front of our newest laboratory building. When you buy a clay brick paver, your donation will go directly to the Science Park cancer research fund. Each brick costs $75 and provides a lasting tribute. Individuals or groups may order as many 4"x 8" bricks as desired with up to 15 characters per line for three lines. Science Park staff will determine the optimal location for terrace bricks and staff members reserve the right to edit text if necessary.
To order, please use our Brick Paver Order Form and mail it with your payment to the address below.
