Relay Tip: Double Donations With Matching Gifts

You've found your nearest Relay For Life event and signed up, right? So let's share some fundraising tips and work together to make sure it's a successful Relay.

Matching gifts are an easy way to double the dollars you raise to support the American Cancer Society Relay For Life. Many people don’t realize that their employers will match gifts made to the American Cancer Society. In some cases, you can turn your $100 donation into $200 just by filling out a simple form. Check with your human resources department to see if your company offers matching gifts and then remind those who donate to you to do the same.

The American Cancer Society has a quick and easy tool to help you determine whether your employer offers a matching gifts program. You can search for your company or call your human resources department directly.

If your company does not match gifts, the American Cancer Society offers many other opportunities for businesses to join us in our mission to saves lives and create a world with more birthdays. For more information, call 1-800-227-2345 or visit ACS Workplace Solutions.
