Other Ways to Give

Learn how to support NBTS in a variety of ways this holiday season.

Did you know you can work to conquer and cure brain tumors with every Amazon purchase you make, through employer matching gifts, or by setting up your own fundraising event? Explore the many ways you can support NBTS at the end of the year.

NEW: Shop NBTS Online

This holiday season, give the gift of hope and community. When you buy merchandise from the new NBTS online store, a portion of your purchase will support our mission to discover a cure, deliver effective treatments, and advocate for patients with brain tumors and caregivers.

You can support the National Brain Tumor Society with every purchase you make on Amazon, at no additional cost to you. Amazon Foundation will donate 0.5 percent of the price of eligible AmazonSmile purchases directly to NBTS.

Here’s how to set it up:

  1. Visit smile.amazon.com and login with your Amazon account.
  2. Select National Brain Tumor Society to start generating donations, at no cost to you.
  3. Bookmark smile.amazon.com and be sure to shop using this URL this holiday season.

Prefer shopping on your phone or mobile device? Set up Amazon Smile using the Amazon shopping app:

  1. Download the Amazon shopping app.
  2. Open the app and find “Settings” in the main menu (☰).
  3. Tap on “AmazonSmile” and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile on your phone.

Whether you are celebrating a survivor, paying tribute to a family member or friend who battled a brain tumor, or you just want to get everyone together for a fun time over the holidays, you can Fundraise Your Way and have a significant impact in supporting our research, advocacy, and awareness efforts. You choose the activity, and we’ll give you the resources to make your fundraiser a success.

Does your employer match your charitable contributions? You can make an even bigger impact by partnering with your employer to increase your gift. Check with your Human Resources Department to see whether your company participates, or you can use the Matching Gift tool on our donation form.

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support NBTS.

A contribution of stock or securities is an excellent way to support National Brain Tumor Society’s mission and receive significant tax benefits. If you wish to contribute in this way, please notify us in advance about your donation by calling Development Office at 617-863-7989, so we may properly recognize your donation.

Anyone 70 ½ or older can make a tax-free gift to NBTS from their IRA. Contact MLacerda@braintumor.org or 617-237-1731 for more information.

Supporting NBTS through a planned gift today not only demonstrates your commitment to our shared mission but also creates an enduring legacy in service of a world without brain tumors.
