Make a Charitable Gift
Making a corporate charitable gift is a simple yet significant way to fund innovative cancer research. At the same time, your company will demonstrate to employees, clients and the larger community that you support their efforts to fight a disease that knows no bounds. Please consider making a gift today to show you care. And be sure to let your employees know you are on their team - against cancer!
Encouraging your employees to actively support The Terry Fox Foundation is a cost-effective way to make an impact on cancer research. It will boost employee morale while at the same time enhance your company's profile within the community. Employees can take part in our national Terry Fox events, or hone leadership and team-building skills by organizing their own fundraising events.
Team Up for Terry
Teams made up by employees and their families are encouraged to participate in the annual Terry Fox Run. They can also organize or participate in The Great Canadian Hair "Do". Many groups dedicate their efforts to a colleague who has battled cancer. This serves as both a poignant reminder of the devastating effect of this disease, as well as an urgent call to action.
In addition, many workplaces bring Terry's story and mission right to their door by hosting fundraising events during the work week. Terry Fox events can take place any time of the year, so choose a time and activity that suits your schedule and workplace. Your Regional Office can provide you with ideas, support and promotional materials to help make this effort a great success for your workplace! A sample of these ideas can be viewed here.

Match Your Employees' Giving
Many companies have programs that match the charitable contributions of employees. When you implement a matching contributions program, you enable employees to double the impact of their gift. And, of course, corporate gifts to The Terry Fox Foundation are tax-deductible.
Hope is in Store
Retail locations can participate in the "Hope is in Store" program. By offering "Terry" cards for a donation of any amount, customers, clients and staff are invited to share their reason for supporting cancer research. We all have a name to write in, someone we have lost, someone who is fighting cancer or a loved one who has overcome this disease. Take pride as the "Terry's" fill your windows, counters or walls.
Gifts in kind
The Terry Fox Foundation boasts one of the lowest administrative costs of all Canadian charities. All events are volunteer-organized with no budget for expenses. Volunteers seek donations of goods, services, and draw prizes for their events. The Foundation appreciates suggestions and recommendations regarding donations of products and services that can help reduce organizational and administrative costs.
