FUNDRAISE FOR KIDNEYCAN

Through the generous support of individuals, industry partners and foundations, KidneyCAN is able to be the expert voice for federal and state advocacy issues and lead the way to kidney cancer awareness and a cure. Every day, because of the generosity of our donors, KidneyCAN is able to truly make a difference in the lives of people affected by kidney cancer.

Resources for Fundraising

AMAZON SMILE

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support KidneyCAN every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to KidneyCAN.

RAISE FUNDS AND AWARENESS ON FACEBOOK

Set up a dedicated fundraising page to share your story, tell others about your mission and rally around your fundraising goal. A Facebook birthday fundraiser is an easy way to support KidneyCAN! Facebook charges no fees to donations made to non-profits.

GIFTS OF STOCK

If you have stock that you’ve owned for more than a year, check with your financial advisor to see if giving stock will provide you with greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to KidneyCAN or email us for further information.

ONE-TIME OR A SUSTAINING DONATION

Your contribution matters in the fight against kidney cancer! Your donation helps to fund programs that support our mission to advocate and fund cutting-edge research. You may make a one-time donation or set-up a recurring gift to help further our work.

MATCHING GIFTS

Double your donation! Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Some provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift! Click the link to check if your Company participates.

WORKPLACE GIVING

Are you a business owner or part of a company that would like to extend your donations through Workplace Giving? See how both KidneyCAN and your company and employees can benefit through a workplace giving program. Read more about this and contact us if you’d like to set up a Workplace Giving program in your company to benefit kidney cancer research.

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday was founded in 2012 with a simple idea: setting aside one day specifically for doing good. It’s held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. In the last decade, nonprofits around the world have organized giving campaigns on this day to help their supporters understand their needs and make an impact through giving.

We at KidneyCAN use Giving Tuesday as an annual opportunity to raise awareness for kidney cancer. We know that makin progress toward cures depends on the generosity of our supporters, and we spend the day providing education and support for patients and caregivers.

If you would like to organize a Giving Tuesday campaign to support KidneyCAN, please let us know! We’d be happy to provide you with resources and information to get started.

Join Our Grassroots Army

We know that awareness of kidney cancer and its impact on many lives leads to a sense of urgency, a desire for solutions. Awareness leads to advocacy, and advocacy — joining to speak as one voice — leads to funding and research. That’s how we get to cures.

"What #KidneyCancer Can't Take from Us"

Be sure to check out the inspiring story of David and Josie, featured in our Community Spotlight this month. David was diagnosed with advanced kidney cancer at age 37, months after his wedding to Josie. Though cancer upended some of the newlyweds' plans, they're focused on the positive and enjoying their lives together.

In 2016, Congress appropriated ZERO dollars for #kidneycancer research. In 2022, that number is $50 million, in large part due to advocacy. When you give to KidneyCAN, you send your voice to Washington.
