In 1999, he spear-headed a charity campaign to raise funds for J. Madison Wright, the young girl who played his screen daughter in the TV show "Earth 2" (1994). Madison, then aged fifteen, had developed cardiomyopathy and was in dire need of a heart transplant, a very costly operation which exceeded her family's lifetime health insurance policy. Clancy offered to assist the Wrights' in their plight. He also bought young Madison a laptop computer for her Christmas in 1999. Tragically, Madison died seven years later, in July 2006, of a heart attack.

Brown Scholarship for students interested in pursuing careers in government and public service as well as the Robert Townsley Scholarship for students of journalism.
