Want to double the dollars you raise to support the American Cancer Society Relay For LifeŽ? Matching gifts are an easy way for you to increase your support for the fight against cancer! Many companies offer matching gift programs where employers agree to match the amount employees donate to support an important cause. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift. That means that your personal donation and possibly the donations of your friends and family members could have twice the impact!
The American Cancer Society has a quick and easy tool that allows you to search for your company to see if they offer a matching gifts program. In some cases, you can download the form right from the site. Simply follow the instructions below to double your dollars today. Don’t forget to encourage others on your team to ask if their employers have a matching gifts program!
- View a list of companies that participate in the American Cancer Society matching gifts program.
- If you want your matching gift credited to a certain event, team, or participant, please indicate that information when you send your donation.
- Complete your company's matching gift form and send it to your local American Cancer Society office, and we'll take it from there.
- If you do not see your company, don't worry, you might still be in luck. Simply contact your personnel or human resources department and ask if they offer a matching gifts or matching funds program. If they do, simply get the form, fill it out, and send it to your local American Cancer Society office. It’s that simple!
