Give the Gift of Shade

Gift of Shade

A fundamental skin cancer prevention practice is to seek shade, particularly during the hours of 10 AM to 4 PM. The Skin Cancer Foundation promotes this healthy habit through its Give the Gift of Shade Program.

Give the gift of a hardwood tree and share sun protection for a lifetime. Give the gift of shade today.

For a contribution of $500, you or whomever you designate will receive a Shade Tree (approximately 2-3 feet in height) for planting.


Once you have made your donation and completed the information form, a staff member from The Skin Cancer Foundation will contact you about your choice of Shade Tree and delivery arrangements.

For more information about the Gift of Shade Program, please contact Adrienne Cea at 212-725-5176 or acea@skincancer.org.
