Donate today to make twice the impact for GivingTuesday*! 

Your donation from November 21 until GivingTuesday on November 28 will be matched, to go twice as far to help people affected by cancer!  

When donations are matched, every gift counts. This GivingTuesday, your support matters - because the life-saving treatments of tomorrow depend on the investments we make today.

*Donations matched up to $70,000 

Matching donations come from corporate, institutional and individual donors who agree to match donations to specific programs, in order to inspire others to give. Donors may also require CCS to raise matching funds as a condition of their support. In both cases, these matches allow for an even greater impact. For more information about matching, and our partners, please visit cancer.ca/matching. Your donation will support cancer research and compassionate support programs. In the event the donations raised exceed the total funding need, CCS will redirect funds to where needed the most.
