The Brett Tashman Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity, was established in 2015 in memory of Brett Tashman, who succumbed to Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor (DSRCT), a rare type of sarcoma, on September 29th of the same year. Brett was 33 years old; Brett had a heart of gold, a passion for life, and deeply impacted all who knew him. He approached everyone with compassion, respect, generosity, kindness and a genuine interest in their well-being. He was an inspiration to all and made a difference in their lives. He continues to do so through his foundation.

Donations can be made here.  All donations made to the Brett Tashman Foundation are tax-deductible.

Below you will find her letter updating us on her developments.

UPDATE: July 2020

Dear Friends,

We had another record year! Over $54,000 toward making DSRCT history! Kudos to ULINE, The Masimo Foundation, and to all our partners. This would not be possible without your continued commitment and generous support.

Let’s keep the ball rolling…
Please save the date for our next golf tournament and luncheon on Saturday, July 17, 2021 at Sierra Lakes Golf Club in Fontana. We look forward to seeing you there. Stay safe and be well.

Warm regards,
The Trustees of The Brett Tashman Foundation

UPDATE: June 2020

Dear Friends, 

Due to COVID-19, the foundation’s golf tournament and luncheon scheduled for July 18, 2020, has been canceled.

Please remember the foundation’s mission is to find a cure for DSRCT. It is a cancer that takes the lives of young adults and children. Accordingly, the foundation’s research at the University of North Carolina Children’s Hospital must continue and be supported. 

So, please make your gift using the DONATE button below.

Stay safe, be well, and we look forward to being with you next summer at the 2021 golf tournament and luncheon, as together we strive to make DSRCT-history. 

Thank you, 
The Brett Tashman Foundation
