How To Help

Three women

Every day, there are more and more underserved Bay Area women with cancer who need the healing, compassionate integrative therapies we offer.

Your generosity helps us deliver our valuable, much-needed treatments and services.

Our clinic is funded by private donations, non-government foundation grants, event proceeds and corporate matching programs. Over 80% of our funding goes toward providing integrative medical treatments, client education materials, volunteer recruitment and training, and critical safety-net services such as emergency food and rent money. Less than 18% of our annual budget goes toward overhead expenses.

Here are the many ways you can help us provide our integrative cancer care to low-come women in the Bay Area:



There are many ways to donate to CMC and all are listed on our Donate page.

The most impactful way to donate is to set up an automatic monthly donation to continually support our delivery of integrative medicine, food and housing for our clients battling cancer. For 25 years, the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic has provided integrative cancer care to low income women, free of charge. Your ongoing support is critical to helping underserved women with cancer. Please help us keep going another 25 years!

Many of our donors also honor or memorialize a loved one or ask friends to celebrate birthdays and special occasions with a gift to CMC. If you have any questions or additional ideas, please contact our Executive Director, yvonne charles at or (510) 601-7660, ext 224.


We never turn down an offer to help us raise money! Here’s a quick idea: set up your own fundraising page on Generosity by Indiegogo. It’s an easy, fun, powerful way to get donations for us. 

We know that raising money takes time, effort and planning. Maybe you want to do a benefit event or a garage sale or throw a cocktail party. So if you have an idea, call or email our Development Associate, Colleen Sullivan at or (510) 601-7660 ext. 230. We are here to help you in any way you need. Start by checking out our Fundraise page

Shop at Amazon Smile

Another easy way to support us is to shop through and select us as your charity.

Amazon will donate 0.5% of your total purchases. That’s 50 cents for every $100 you purchase. If you do any shopping on Amazon, this is an easy, painless way to support CMC. We’d love you to tell everyone you know. Amazon’s donation is an automatic, quarterly deposit. They more people select us as their charity, the bigger the donation!

Donate from our Wish List

We’d love you to be our wish list fairy!

Our clinic and clients are always in need of items like gift cards, portable heaters, music CDs and nutritional supplements. Just pick any item on our Wish List page and call us to arrange delivery.
