Largest gift in Fred Hutch history: $78M from Stuart and Molly Sloan will support precision oncology

Seattle-based research institution Fred Hutch has received a $78 million gift from Stuart and Molly Sloan to launch a new institute dedicated to oncology research.

The contribution will fund the establishment of The Stuart and Molly Sloan Precision Oncology Institute, the recruitment of a scientific leader and endowed chair for the initiative, and support for fellowships, projects, and other investments.

“Everyone has been touched by cancer, and too many lives have been lost to this terrible disease,” Molly Sloan said. “We hope this donation inspires others to join Fred Hutch’s efforts to continue to be a place where more cures and new treatments are discovered and, ultimately, we collectively put an end to cancer.”
