In an effort to fight childhood cancer, the Netherland-America Foundation (NAF) and the Dutch Foundation for Children Kankervrij (KIKA) are teaming up with runners in the 2013 ING New York City Marathon.
Please consider helping us to raise funds to promote research into childhood cancer--and simultaneously--to help strengthen the ties between the Netherlands and New York City. Your dollars will underwrite the exchange of American and Dutch scientists via two NAF-Fulbright Fellowships (for research into childhood cancer in the Netherlands and the U.S., respectively).
Did you know that the survival of children with cancer has increased substantially (to 70%) over the last decade? As remarkable as this survival rate is, it means that 30% of children do not survive. Though less common than cancer in adults, pediatric cancer receives a disproportionate amount--only five percent--of all public and private cancer research funds raised. We are asking you to help increase the levels of funding for research into cancer for the youngest victims of this disease
The Netherland-America Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by state and federal law. As the NAF is also recognized by the Dutch tax authorities as algemeen nut beogende instelling (ABNI), contributions to the NAF made by Dutch-resident individuals may be eligible for a deduction against the individual’s Dutch personal income tax, at a maximum Box 1 rate of 52%.
On behalf KIKA and the children, we thank you in advance for your commitment and enthusiasm.
The Netherland-America Foundation
