Donate

If you like to give locally. If you are called to help kids. If you are passionate about pediatric cancer research, Connor’s Heroes makes all three possible. We are a lifeline for local families and an advocate for research. Until we find a cure, Connor’s Heroes will give each family hope, guidance, and support. Donate now to make sure no family faces their child’s cancer alone.

Giving online is easy! You decide where your money goes: to where it is needed most or to our research or bereavement funds. You can give at one time or set up a recurring monthly gift. If there is a special hero in your life, you can make a tribute gift in their honor or memory.
