Match Your Gift

Did you know many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage giving among their employees? And some companies also match gifts for spouses, retirees and part-time employees.

Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s employer matching gift program provides an easy way to increase the impact of your donation through corporate matching gifts. When you make a donation, your company can double or even triple the value of your generous gift in a manner of minutes.



Here’s how to make a matching gift:

Companies often support nonprofits in other ways. For example:


Dollars for Doers

In this program, participating companies provide grants to charities where their employees volunteer or are involved in. Consult with your company’s Human Resources office for details.


Request A Grant

Some companies allow their employees to make recommendations for charitable grants from the company/corporate foundation. Please ask your company if they consider employee recommendations for grant giving.


United Way

If your employer participates in the United Way Workplace Campaigns program, you may designate Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation as your charity of choice. If your local United Way campaigns do not list Bear Necessities, you may write in Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation on the pledge card, along with this address: 55 W. Wacker Drive, Suite 1100, Chicago, IL 60016. Each United Way designation code will vary by United Way regional office. 

Please mail all gifts and forms to:
