Support Us

Visitors to The Gathering Place often ask how we are able to provide all programs and services free of charge.  The answer is always the same: because of the generosity of our caring community.

Since The Gathering Place first opened in January of 2000, the organization has raised more than $20 million in donations from the community.  These funds have helped us to open our doors, expand our programs, plant our healing garden and reach across the river and put down roots on the west side.

Donations to The Gathering Place come in many forms.  Donations come to our Annual Fund, special events like Race for the Place, to support specific programs, and in honor, in memory and in celebration of a loved one.  Donations come from individuals, from families, from corporations and from foundations.

We are grateful to all of our donors for helping us to achieve our mission to provide all programs and services free of charge.  Thank you to everyone who has helped to make The Gathering Place a success and for contributing to our ability to have a positive impact on individuals and families touched by cancer.
