The Dana-Farber Society (DFS) honors those who have left a legacy to the Institute to commemorate their dedication and impact on cancer research and patient care. The Society's goal is to provide a future, dependable resource of funding to help fulfill Dana-Farber’s mission and ensure a brighter outlook for our patients and their families.

Membership is extended to those who have made a provision in their will or estate plans for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the Jimmy Fund, the Friends of Dana-Farber, or the Pan Mass Challenge. These future gifts will sustain the work of Institute physicians and scientists, and provide hope for generations of cancer patients.
