Companies for Cures workplace giving program provides an easy way for organizations and their employees to support Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund through automatic payroll deductions, or via check or credit card. By participating in this fundraising program in the workplace to benefit Dana-Farber, you advance our lifesaving mission and impact thousands of cancer patients' lives.
Who can participate?
Any company can create a Companies for Cures program, no matter the size of your organization. Every dollar truly makes a difference. For example, if 50 people from your company gave $2 a week for a year, your company would generate $5,200 collectively to be used toward the fight against cancer at Dana-Farber.
