How Your Employer Could Help Fund More Cancer Research

When you give to the V Foundation for Cancer Research, you know every single penny of your donation will support cancer research. What if you could instantly double your contribution?

Introducing you to our Matching Gifts program.

This program allows business and corporations to support causes important to their employees and/or retirees by matching their charitable contributions. Make a gift, and double the impact, just by involving your employer! Whether you made a single donation or give monthly, your donation could be matched by your employer.

Does your company participate? You can find out by visiting our Matching Gifts webpage to search for your employer. And even if you’re unsure, you should check! More than 18 million individuals work for companies with matching gift programs. In fact, an estimated $2-3 billion is donated through matching gift programs annually.

If you find your company has a matching gift program by searching on our site, you’ll simply be prompted to fill out some paperwork they have provided. Once submitted, your request will be processed. It’s THAT easy!

Just ask David Dymowski. He was inspired to give to the V Foundation through WWE’s Connor’s Cure initiative. Once he found out his company (The Home Depot) had matching gift program, it was a no brainer.

“When I found out my company had a matching gift program, I immediately made a gift,” said Dymowski. “It makes me proud knowing myself and The Home Depot will continue to help this fight against cancer.”

Dymowski doubled his gift and also doubled his impact, because every dollar moves us closer to Victory Over Cancer®.
