Yes, I want to support the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute
Institute was launched on April 2, 2009 and is named in honour of
the late Beatrice Hunter of River John, Nova Scotia. Over a decade
ago, Mrs. Hunter bequeathed $12.5 million to Dalhousie Medical
Research Foundation for cancer research, in memory of her
parents, Dr. Owen and Mrs. Pearle Cameron.
Beatrice Hunter's extraordinary gift was the catalyst that
sparked a decade of rapid growth in local cancer research
capabilities. Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation now directs all
of its cancer donations to the Institute and provides charitable tax
receipts for those gifts on behalf of the Institute.
Your donation to the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute
(BHCRI) provides funding for established cancer researchers and
their trainees in universities, hospital and research laboratories
throughout Atlantic Canada. BHCRI is the region's only institute
that funds all aspects of cancer research, including basic science,
clinical and population health research. Donation funds help to
leverage grants and contributions from government and other
charities which in turn further build capacity and enhance the
critical mass of research expertise in the Atlantic region.
Offical receipts for income tax purposes will be issued
electronically by Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation for
donations of $10.00 and up.
