At the heart of Art in Giving lies a family’s hope to eliminate childhood cancer
The Art in Giving logo is based on a drawing Rachel Molly Markoff drew during one of her many visits to the Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund Clinic.
Rachel was diagnosed with a brain tumor on January 16, 1992. She passed away on October 17, 1992, one week after her ninth birthday.
Rachel embraced life and loved her twin sister, Audrey. To me, the flowers and the sun in the logo represent the hope for all other children and their families affected by cancer.
FOUNDER, ART IN GIVING
Innovative philanthropy model fuels innovative research
Art in Giving raises funds for childhood cancer research through the sale of fine arts.
Talented artists exhibit their work with Art in Giving and fifty percent of the purchase price of their artwork sold goes directly to talented cancer researchers working on breakthrough ideas to identify causes of and cures for brain tumors and gliomas.
To date, Art in Giving has granted $1.4 million in seed funding to researchers at Stanford University Medical School, Yale University School of Medicine, Barrow Neurological Institute, University of Pennsylvania, The Broad Institute, Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Johns Hopkins University, Mass General Hospital, and Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
Our business model increases the amount of money targeted for pediatric cancer research, a severely underfunded area.
- People buy from us rather than a commercial gallery, and still make donations to their favorite charities
- Interior designers purchase art for their clients while supporting innovative research
- Companies purchase art using facility management and gift, not philanthropy, budgets
With Art in Giving, children with cancer and their families, pediatric cancer researchers, artists, art enthusiasts, and corporations all benefit.
