Accept the Challenge to Benefit Cancer Patients

Give to a world-class cancer center and ensure that your gift is matched by the Carter Family Charitable Trust.

Carter MatchWomen & Infants supporters like you are generously responding to a $500,000 Carter Family Charitable Trust challenge that will improve the environment of care for women undergoing treatment for cancer.  

John and Letitia Carter, long-time Women & Infants supporters, will donate $500,000 if the hospital raises $750,000. Your support will help fund the construction of a new Infusion Center and provide designated space for other vital cancer services at the hospital's Program in Women's Oncology, located in the Bernard and Ina Wasserman Family Building.  

"We are confident that the Carters' generosity will inspire community members to invest in this critical project that will benefit thousands of women in need of lifesaving cancer treatment," says Constance A. Howes, president and chief executive officer of Women & Infants.  

The Carters' leadership was crucial to the success of the hospital's largest capital fundraising effort, the $22.9-million ONWARD Campaign that concluded in 2009. With two challenge grants, the couple sparked an outpouring of gifts from supporters like you to help build the South Pavilion, which houses the Carter Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Accept the challenge.
