Double Your Fundraising Efforts!

We can’t wait to see you all at the upcoming Arizona Relay For Life events! And we can’t thank you enough for lending your time and energy to help create a world with less cancer and More Birthdays!!

As we head into Relay season, we want to make sure that you know of a quick and easy way to double fundraising for your event.

Ask all of your donors to check with their employers to see if they will match a gift to the American Cancer Society. They can even check online by visiting matchinggifts.com/acs and enter their company name. If their company does match, the information and guidelines are there.

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift! Donors may not think to ask their employers, and a friendly reminder from you could go a long way toward increasing your donations!

Log into your Participant Center on your event's website and email anyone who has donated to you already asking them to check with their employer and help you double their gift.

If you still need to register for a Relay in your area, please sign up and join us!
