Now’s the time: Georgia Income Tax Check Off for Cancer Research

January 13, 2012 at 2:36 pm Leave a comment

As Georgians file their tax returns, they will be able to support cancer research and prevention simply by writing in a contribution of $1 or more on the Georgia Cancer Research Fund line of their tax return.  The contribution goes toward a small grants programs administered through the Georgia Cancer Coalition, an initiative of the Georgia Research Alliance.  The amount of the contribution is taken from any refund or added to any amount owed.  Since its launch in 2000, the “check off” programs has raised $3 million for cancer research and prevention projects, with some 71 projects funded across the state.  For more about the program, click here.
