                      DONATION FAQs


Will my donation be tax deductible?

Yes, Mayo Clinic is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Every donor will receive a letter directly from the Mayo Clinic to use for tax purposes.


How much of my donation will actually be used for the Density MATTERS study?

Are there any cuts, fees, or administrative expenses taken out?

100% of all donations will go directly to the research conducted by doctors at the Mayo Clinic. The ‘Donate’ button on this website will redirect the donor to a Mayo Clinic landing page where the funds go directly to the designated Mayo Clinic research project.


Who is paying the expenses for Leslie’s trip to do this walk?

Leslie is self-funding her walk. She will not accept donations or sponsorships to cover her expenses. Leslie wants all funds donated to go directly to the research.


Will a donation qualify for my corporate matching program?

Yes. As a not-for-profit organization, Mayo Clinic is eligible for many matching gift programs of corporations, foundations, and other organizations. Be sure to maximize your gift by taking advantage of any matching program available to you!
