How to Help

We help people live with cancer.

And so can you when you make a gift to Cancer Support Community North Texas. There are giving options for every level of involvement. Please scroll through this page for detailed information on our numerous opportunities to improve life for people with cancer.

All of our services are offered at no cost to patients and their families and caregivers. Your gift will go directly to the program cost and related operating expenses that keep our red doors open across North Texas.

Youth in Philanthropy

We love Noogies! Our Noogieland program is dedicated to helping kids live with cancer, especially when it impacts a family member. See Noogieland for more information about how we support the needs of children. Kids have a tremendous capacity to give back to the community. A few examples of how kids can become involved with CSCNT include:

  • Community Service Projects: volunteer for a special service that will help your local CSC.
  • Bar/Bat Mitzvah/Confirmation Projects: develop a personal project as you prepare for your special day.
  • Giving Back: host a fundraiser at your school or other community group and donate the proceeds to CSCNT.
  • You’ve got Talent: use a special talent or hobby to raise money for CSCNT. If you knit, paint, origami, play sports, or walk the dog, you can raise money and give back! Be creative!

Contact our Noogieland Coordinator for more information on developing your child’s project: (214) 345-8234.
