Corporate Giving

“Since my own brain tumour diagnosis, I’ve felt that getting information into patients’ hands is important. Knowing our Flower Pouch is seen across Canada, it offers a good opportunity to put Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada’s name in front of thousands of people for virtually no cost. Using the pouch to raise funds was a logical next step. I’ve since learned that there are other brain tumour related projects that require funding and support. We’re proud to be a part of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada family.” – Rick Bradt, A.M.A. Horticulture

Support through national sponsorships, major gifts, cause marketing (like our partnership with A.M.A. Horticulture), and matching gifts are vital to supporting every Canadian affected by this devastating disease. As a Corporate Partner of Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, we can foster your corporate social responsibility goals and work with you to customize any giving and/or employee engagement opportunities to meet your company’s unique needs, values, and vision.

Your support shows your employees and your customers that you care.

A partnership with Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada will help you achieve your CSR goals while engaging your employee’s social good and having a positive impact on the Canadian brain tumour community.

Employee Giving

“Taking advantage of my employer’s matching gift program doubled the impact of my donation, helping to propel brain tumour research forward.”

Employee giving programs, whether through United Way, Employer Contribution Funds or other programs, provides an easy way to make a gift to help.

One type of employee giving is a Matching Gift program. Many companies have a matching gift program that matches either financial gifts or volunteer hours. Often, all you have to do is ask! Simply contact your Human Resources (HR) department for information on your organization’s program and express your desire to make Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada your charity of choice.

To find out if your company will match your gift, contact your company’s HR department or see if your employer is listed here:
