Giving Through Your Employer
Many employers in the public and private sectors encourage charitable giving through a number of programs. Here you’ll find some of the most common ways employees can contribute a portion of their earnings, or can get their gifts matched in part or in full by their employers.
Combined Federal Campaign
Cancer Research America – NFCR is the name of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) and the ICA State Employee Campaign programs for the National Foundation for Cancer Research. Government employees can generously allocate a portion of their paycheck to go to NFCR by selecting Cancer Research America – CFC #11267 – as their charity of choice and select an amount of money to donate per paycheck. NFCR funds leading cancer researchers throughout the United States and the funding provided by NFCR has led to important breakthroughs and will continue to do so. The contributions from participants in the Combined Federal Campaign and ICA State Employee Campaign allow NFCR to fight for a goal we all share: a cancer-free America.
Cancer Research America is a proud nationwide charity partner of Community Health Charities.

Did you know that you employer may double your gift?
Many companies across the United States have matching gift programs. With these programs, when an employee donates to an eligible nonprofit organization, the corporation will “match” that contribution, often dollar for dollar, doubling your impact.
These programs are offered by companies around the world — about 65% of Fortune 500 companies (as well as many other organizations) have a match program in place. This means millions of individuals can multiply their impact!
But we need your help!
To ensure your contribution is matched, contact your human resources department to determine your company’s policies and procedures.
As a grassroots organization, the National Foundation for Cancer Research relies on individual donors across the United States and around the world to support groundbreaking cancer research. By doubling your gift, you are doubling the resources available to scientists around the world working in support of Research for a Cure — a cure for all types of cancer.
If you have any questions about corporate matching, please contact us at 1-800-321-CURE (2873).
