How Your Gift Matters

Why Every Gift Matters

Efficiency with donor dollars is of the utmost importance to the Foundation. We take our responsibility to our donors seriously. We are proud that 91 cents of every dollar we spend goes directly to improving the lives of cancer patients and increasing survival rates.

The number of individuals supporting Cancer Foundation For Life® is just as significant as the dollars we raise. The percentage of patients and donors giving to CFFL each year is a significant measure of the trust participants have in our program. The more people who make a gift, of any amount, the more cancer patients we can reach.

How Can You Transform the Face of Cancer?

Your support for the Cancer Foundation For Life® is essential to everything we do.

  • Your help provides vital resources to expand FitSTEPS for Life® to more communities that support the under-served and provide important services such as outreach to our neediest patients.
  • You help supports researchers and make it possible for them to discover innovative therapies and expand knowledge—transform cancer care.
  • Your help supports a world-class team.
  • Your help reduces the costs associated with cancer care. Cancer treatment can be debilitating financially. You help maintain this free program by giving annually.
  • Your help inspires students to join a ground-breaking program and give back to the communities in which they live.

Providing our free program takes resources. The funds provided by annual gifts are spent every year. But the important service of increasing survival rates and improving the quality of lives of cancer survivors continues every year.

The amount you are able to give may vary, and the areas you choose to support may differ. But your commitment to giving each year provides the sustainable base of support that allows us to make a difference every day and transform the face of cancer.

You can choose to support:

  • Annual Gifts
  • Endowments
  • Planned Gifts/Bequests
  • Pledges
  • Matching Gifts
  • Memorial Gifts
  • Honorary Gifts
  • Stocks, Bonds or Mutual Funds
  • Employer Match Charitable Giving
