Workplace Giving

The Cancer Research Institute is a proud member of the Community Health Charities of America and United Way. These workplace giving organizations make it easy for you and your employer to make automatic charitable donations to member nonprofits like the Cancer Research Institute.

Through the Community Health Charities and United Way, the Cancer Research Institute can help you set up an annual giving campaign in your workplace, or enhance one that is already in place. Your employees will not only contribute to America’s most worthy charities but will also gain access to special resources including video podcasts on healthy living.

If you don’t already have this workplace giving program in place, be sure to talk to your employer. We encourage you to share this information with your coworkers as well. People who donate to CRI through workplace giving are a vital source of support to fuel our mission to save more lives with immunotherapy.
