Every gift is important.
Help us carry out our mission to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
Did you know that your gift to the Cancer Support Community could be matched dollar for dollar by your employer? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to encourage philanthropy among their employees and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees and/or employees’ spouses.
Corporate matching gifts are a great way for Cancer Support Community donors to maximize personal contributions to the organization and increase the impact of their gift. By taking advantage of a company’s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of a contribution. Contributions of any amount help us.
How do I get my gift matched?
- Check to see if your employer is listed. View list
- If you do not find your employer listed, please check with your company’s Human Resources department to see if your company offers a matching gift program.
- If your company does not offer a matching gift program, we urge you to inquire through your company’s HR department about starting a matching gifts program.
Each company has its own guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees, and even widows/widowers. If your employer offers this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with information and instructions to complete a Matching Gifts request. Some companies have an online portal and others will give you a form to fill out and send to the receiving organization. Completed forms should be mailed with your personal gift to:
Cancer Support Community
Attn: Matching Gifts
1050 17th St., NW, Suite 500
Washington, DC 20036
