We are pleased to introduce our corporate donors to 360 degrees of giving. Your company can make a difference and help nearly 1 in 2 Canadians impacted by cancer in communities across Canada.

Partnering for impact – 360 degrees of giving

The Canadian Cancer Society and your corporate family have the potential to form a strong partnership, and together make a significant impact on thousands who live with cancer. Here is how we will do it:

  • creation of a fund in your company name, held at the Canadian Cancer Society
  • monthly employee giving
  • employer supported volunteering
  • corporate giving/matching gifts
  • sponsorship of a local Canadian Cancer Society event or program
  • 3rd party event held in support of the Canadian Cancer Society
  • Create a fund

    At your request, we will be proud to create a fund in your name where all proceeds from every initiative that you undertake to the benefit of the Canadian Cancer Society will be deposited.

    • At the end of each year, we will provide you with a list of research projects that need funding and local programs and services that will benefit greatly from your generous support.
    • You then decide where your charitable dollars will have the greatest impact.  
    • We will provide you with a completed report on what your funds accomplished.
    • If you have funded a research project, we can arrange for a researcher to make a presentation to your staff, explaining what they were able to achieve through your corporate support.  
    • We can also offer talks on broader subjects like cancer prevention, smoking cessation programs or cancer care.

    We can do all of that!

  • Engage employees with a monthly giving program
    • This program gives your company an opportunity to build employee engagement while having a direct impact on people living in your community.
    • We know that companies offering their workforce a focused charitable opportunity generally experience a significant rise in the level of employee engagement.
    • Your full- and part-time employees can become monthly donors to the Canadian Cancer Society.  
    • For gifts as modest as $10 per month, your employees can make a measurable difference in the lives of those for whom cancer is a daily reality.
  • Employer supported volunteering

    Supporting your employees in volunteering can benefit your company by:

    • strengthening your community profile
    • creating an emotional connection with your employees
    • promoting team building
    • boosting employee morale
    • renewing your employees’ sense of social commitment and increasing their job satisfaction by helping us fulfill our mission.
