Companies for Cures is an easy and effective way for organizations and their employees to support Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund through the workplace. By participating in or hosting a workplace giving program for Dana-Farber, you advance our lifesaving mission and impact thousands of patients' lives.
Any company can create a workplace giving program, no matter the size of your organization. Every dollar truly makes a difference. For example, if 200 people from your company gave $2 a week for a year, you would generate $20,800 to fight cancer.
This program is a win-win-win for everyone involved:
Companies can participate all year round and can begin at any time. Typically, kick-off events begin in the fall, so staff can determine their pledge amounts at this time, and distributions begin in the new year.
Sign up today and help make a difference in the fight against cancer.

Dana-Farber will provide printed materials and paper pledge forms to your company's contact person. Our representatives are available to attend or facilitate campaign events, give short presentations at employee meetings, and/or answer any questions your employees may have.
Generally, employees choose a fixed amount to be deducted on each payday, but a one-time gift is also an option. The gift is sent directly by the employer to Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis.
