How Planned Gifts Benefit You

Named in memory of the late record and film executive who died of lymphoma at the age of 39, The Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program was founded in 1984. Looking to celebrate his life, friends, family and colleagues linked efforts with the beginnings of a pediatric program at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. Songwriter Carole Bayer Sager and Neil’s widow Joyce Bogart Trabulus cited as an inspiration his love of children and his resolve that one person could make a difference. Today, Bogart, which supported one small laboratory, now supports several research programs whose impact is felt across the world.

Since then, the Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program has contributed over $25 million to our five laboratories at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles to support innovative research for leukemia, cancer and AIDS.  This groundbreaking research has helped saved innumerable lives across the world.

Everyone is working together towards a common goal—to raise funds for innovative research into the treatments and cures of leukemia, cancer and AIDS—and to fulfill a promise.

You can have an impact on the future of The Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program. This website will show you how charitable estate planning can benefit you, your heirs and Bogart.  We invite you to join us in supporting Bogart by designating a gift for us in your will or living trust; by naming Bogart as a beneficiary or owner of a new or existing life insurance policy or savings, brokerage or retirement account; or by establishing a life income gift.  We hope you will join us in sustaining our tradition of excellence as we continue to grow.

We encourage you to explore the possibilities and opportunities for creative planning that are featured on this website.

Thank you for being part of the cure.
