The President’s Circle: $100,000+

Eugene P. Schonfeld Legacy Society

When Eugene P. Schonfeld, who was himself an advanced kidney cancer patient, formed the KCA in 1990, a diagnosis meant facing a limited future. Thanks to the tireless work of the KCA and a growing community of researchers and patient advocates over the past 3 decades, patients have a better chance of survival. However, there is still much to be done. While Mr. Schonfeld sadly died of kidney cancer, his legacy remains as strong as ever. Members of our Eugene P. Schonfeld Legacy Society have the foresight to include the KCA as part of their estate plans and join him in leaving a legacy that will touch the lives of countless others.

Share Your Legacy

Please let us know if you've already included a gift for the Kidney Cancer Association. Providing us with documentation is the best way to ensure that your gift is used in the way you intend.


You can create your own lasting legacy. By including a gift of this size in your will or other estate plans, you could establish a legacy of supporting kidney cancer patients and their loved ones.
