Pediatric Cancer Research Trust Fund

Legislation passed in 2015 established the Pediatric Cancer Research Trust Fund to support pediatric cancer research and treatment.

Kentuckians can support the work of the trust fund by using a special check-off option to contribute all or a portion of their Kentucky state income tax refunds. Tax refund contributions to the trust fund will be used to advance promising Kentucky programs promoting pediatric cancer research and treatment.
