Other Ways to Give
Many companies match employee contributions to charitable organizations, thus increasing the dollar value of these donations. Please consult your company to find out if it has a matching gift program.
Special events such as Saks Fifth Avenue’s Key to the Cure, headliner luncheons, gala dinners, mixers, golf tournaments and others provide financial support both to the ongoing design and maintenance of CancerForward’s web-based platform and to CancerForward’s grants programs, which invest dollars in cancer survivorship and rehabilitation programs within healthcare institutions and community organizations throughout the U.S. Too, these special events provide a festive outing at which survivors can enjoy themselves and meet other survivors and survivorship advocates in unique and varied social settings. Financial contributions made in conjunction with special events are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
By sponsoring an educational program, survivorship program or rehabilitation program in conjunction with CancerForward, corporations gain community visibility and the satisfaction of knowing their dollars are being re-invested among cancer survivors who live within the communities they serve. Most Corporate Sponsorship Programs can be designed with an eye toward creating opportunities where corporate employees can participate in one-on-one and personalized volunteer projects that directly and positively affect the lives of cancer survivors.
An In-Kind Donation is an easy and cash-retentive method whereby companies and individuals make gifts of products and services to help support CancerForward’s fundraising efforts, marketing initiatives, and administrative work. For corporations and self-employed individuals, they are a particularly effective way to participate in supporting CancerForward while garnering community visibility. In-Kind Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Foundation Support makes a vital contribution to CancerForward by providing for a wide range of educational and community outreach programs that touch unique, diverse and traditionally underserved groups of cancer survivors. Through grant applications to local, regional and national foundations, CancerForward promotes model rehabilitation and survivorship programs at healthcare institutions and community-based organizations nationwide. CancerForward designs these programs in part to encourage clinical surveys and research studies promoting the development of new interventions and best practices in the field of cancer survivorship.
Volunteer Support is at the heart of everything CancerForward does and needs to do. CancerForward depends heavily on professional writers and students pursuing college degrees in journalism to assist the Foundation’s editorial staff in managing research and content acquisition and in writing editorial features – primary components of the Foundation’s unique web platform. Volunteers also assist with administrative functions and preparing for events, coordinating mailings, phone banks, and data entry.
