Many companies set aside philanthropic dollars and allocate those funds through matching gift programs. These programs allow employees (and oftentimes retirees, spouses, and directors) of the company to make a contribution to a nonprofit organization that is then matched by a corporate gift. Matching levels vary from one company to another, but regardless of the match percentage, these gifts represent a significant source of income for the Cancer Research Institute. Although procedures for matching gift programs vary, matching gift forms are usually obtained through the employer's human resource office. The employee sends the signed form with a check made payable to the Cancer Research Institute. The rest is handled by CRI and the employer.

There are more than 20,000 matching gift companies nationwide. To see if your gift would qualify, earch for your employer. If so, follow the instructions provided.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can donate to CRI?

Anyone who has an interest in helping to advance the fight against cancer is encouraged to donate to CRI. Individuals can make cash donations and also include CRI in their estate planning or planned giving. Corporations and foundations also can make donations.

Are there tax benefits for donating to CRI?

CRI is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, so your donations are deductible for federal or state tax purposes as allowed by law. Planned giving, which can encompass bequests and gift annuities, may offer other tax or financial planning advantages as well.

Why is CRI a good choice for my charitable support?

Through our strategic programs, CRI is leading global efforts to bring new immune-based treatments to patients sooner. Our focus on immunotherapy – which is applicable in the treatment of almost all types of cancer – means our donors are making an impact in the lives of more cancer patients. We are proud to have one of the lowest overhead expense ratios among nonprofit organizations. Historically, between 85 and 90 cents of every dollar donated to us goes to our research and medical education programs.

How do "charity watchdog" organizations rate CRI?

We consistently earn high marks from charity watchdog organizations, including an A or higher from the American Institute of Philanthropy. We are also a proud member of the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance, the most rigorous evaluator of charity activity with 20 standards of accountability and ethical practice. We have 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest and most utilized evaluator of charities; an A grade from Charity Watch; and a Gold Participant seal from GuideStar.
