Support Carter’s CREW, our annual fund.  CREW members are committed to helping us realize our vision to improve the quality of life for children affected by cancer, to provide needed financial support to their families, and to support research into treatments for childhood cancer.

“CREW” was an acronym developed by our Board of Directors to summarize how an annual fund should support the vision and mission of The Carter Nedley Foundation.

CANCER. To broaden our reach, we must increase awareness of our mission.  Your support helps us to position ourselves as a valued member among the regional community of healthcare philanthropists.

RESEARCH. The Carter Nedley Foundation desires to become a dependable long-term funding source for childhood cancer research.  Your support helps us to build and to strengthen our endowment.

EDUCATION. Your support helps us to organize drives for blood donation and marrow-donor registration, and helps us to educate others about the need for increased research funding.

WELLNESS. Your support helps us to provide toys and entertainment for the children, and helps us to provide their families, often compromised financially by their child’s hospitalization, with gift cards to meet expenses such as food, fuel, and parking.


GOLD – $500+

SILVER – $100 to $499

BRONZE – $50 to $99

Bronze and Silver donors each will receive a silicone wristband debossed with “Carter’s Crew” and our Web address.  Color of the wristband will correspond to giving level.  Our wristbands are 100% recycled silicone, contain no lead or latex, are individually wrapped, and were made proudly in the U.S.A.

Gold donors will receive both a silver wristband and a gold-ribbon lapel pin.

Gifts to The Carter Nedley Foundation are fully deductible as charitable contributions for income-tax purposes.  Gifts always are directed first to programming and to our endowment before any administrative expenses.  No Foundation staff, members of the Board of Directors, or volunteers are paid.

We also subscribe to the Donor’s Bill of Rights developed by the American Association of Fundraising Counsel, the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, and the National Society of Fundraising Executives.

The “Donate” button shown below will process a donation by credit card securely using PayPal.   All major cards are accepted.
