Meet Our Planned Giving Donors
Inspiring Stories of Support
The generosity of our planned giving donors has made possible some of Memorial Sloan Kettering's most vital work. We gratefully acknowledge their visionary commitment to MSK's future and recognize them as members of the Elizabeth Hamilton Cullum Society.
This group of visionaries is named after the granddaughter of Alexander Hamilton, the man who was the first Secretary of the Treasury and a signer of the Constitution. Mrs. Cullum believed in using her influence for the greater good. She also had a personal interest in cancer. Her only son died of the disease in 1882, and less than a year later, she learned that she too, had cancer. Her commitment to improving cancer care prompted Mrs. Cullum to leave her entire estate to the New York Cancer Hospital, which would later become Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. This created the first charitable legacy in MSK's history.
