MATCHING GIFTS

Looking for a way to grow your contribution without actually giving more? The solution may be simpler than you think.

Many companies have matching gift programs, meaning they match (or even triple) their employees’ contributions to qualifying charitable organizations. Many employers will often make a monetary donation for each volunteer hour the employee gives to the community.

To find out if your company runs a matching gift program, ask your company’s HR department. Then get a matching gift form from your company, complete it, and mail it to:

CanCare
9575 Katy Freeway, Suite 428
Houston, TX 77024

PLANNED GIVING

The simplest is a bequest in your will. Or, you can establish a trust that will enable you to contribute to CanCare while providing you with income, helping you meet your current and long-term financial and philanthropic needs. You also can designate CanCare as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, a life insurance policy or of a bank account or security.
