Nominee Information

Your nominee’s medical information is not required to submit the nomination. However, if you have the information and would like to fill it out, please do so.

Once a nomination is received, the nominator will be contacted to initiate the process for completing a Recipient Information Form (RIF). Our Giving Committee (which includes at least one past recipient) reviews all RIFs and makes recommendations to the Foundation for specific Gifts of Fun. It is our goal to send as many people on vacation as possible, but as that is not always possible, the committee may select alternative gifts  based on information provided.

Do you know if the Nominee has traveled for vacation in the last 12 months or has a planned vacation in the next 12 months?

What might a break from cancer look like for this person? What suggestions do you have for this person’s gift of fun? For example, KWF is known for spa days, concerts, sporting events, getaways, skydiving and more!
