Yes, please! The cure is … you. You giving, you inspiring others to give, you making a phone call or sending an email, that’s how the cure is going to happen.

Help Fund & Find the Cure

Thirty years ago, it was leukemia that was the #1 cancer-killer of children. But thanks to improved awareness and funding that advanced research and treatments, those children have a fighting chance now. We just want the same to be said for brain cancer. The great thing is that there are many ways for you to donate.

Individual donations

The foundation functions on a 100% volunteer basis. That means every dollar we earn goes toward the good of the foundation’s research funding goals. No fluff.

You may send tax-deductible donations in the form of cash or a check made out to the Kyrie Foundation. Please mail to:

Kyrie Foundation
10317 Century Lane
Overland Park, KS 66215

If you include a mailing or e-mail address with your donation, we will send end-of-year statements for your records.

We are pleased to offer online donation capabilities through our secure PayPal account.

Sponsorships & Corporate Philanthropy

Every foundation event needs people and business to support the work. Better yet? Please consider the Kyrie Foundation as a beneficiary of your corporate philanthropic event or fund.
