Help Gilda’s Club continue to thrive … so no one faces cancer alone

Gilda’s Club depends on the support of people like you. An independent and locally-funded nonprofit, all our services are delivered free of charge—because the last thing someone dealing with cancer needs is another expense.

A message to our donors: COVID-19

None of us anticipated this.  No one knew what social distancing really meant, nor how important it would be.  Most of us didn’t really understand isolation or uncertainty the way we do now, nor did we recognize its impact on our mental health.  However, for those living with cancer, their families, friends and caregivers, and those living with loss, they understand all too well.  This is why Gilda’s Club Twin Cities matters.

Gilda’s Club is not a nice to have as the world combats the COVID-19 pandemic…it is a lifeline

When we knew we would have to close our clubhouse for the safety of our members, volunteers, and staff, we also knew that we had to find a way to continue to provide the social and emotional support that our members need now more than ever.

We did not miss one day of programming.  On Monday, March 16th, we began virtual programming via teleconference and HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing platforms.  In the first week, all 17 of our weekly support groups took place with strong attendance.  We were also able to offer virtual IMPROV for Life, one of our most popular (and life-affirming) classes and art therapy.  This week we added Gentle Yoga and are planning the launch of a virtual Food for Life nutrition offering.

Gilda’s Club Twin Cities was able to quickly adapt to meet the needs of our members, but it was not without an unanticipated financial investment – in technology, in cleaning and sanitization of the clubhouse, in making it possible for our staff and facilitators to do their jobs effectively from their own homes.  At the same time, we had to postpone our Spring Fundraiser, which is our single largest source of revenue.

We did the right thing and we will continue to do the right thing to ensure that no one faces cancer alone.  But we need your help.  Your support today is more important than ever.  Thank you for making a donation today.

Shorten our Wishlist!

We’ve got a running list of items the clubhouse needs to better serve our members.

Do you accept wigs, medication, or other in-kind gifts?

While Gilda’s Club Twin Cities is thankful for the generosity of our donor community we have limited space at the clubhouse, and we must make very careful, conscious decisions about what donations we can accept. At this time we DO NOT accept wigs, breast prosthesis, hats, clothing, medication, medical equipment, etc. If you would like to make an in-kind donation to Gilda’s Club, please view our wish list above for specific items we currently need.
