Print our Fact Sheet
Print our Fact Sheet and post it in your office’s break room or other appropriate location. (You may want to check with your human resources department first.)
Read the fine Print
Read the fine print. When you give to any other cancer-fighting organization, ask the crucial question: How much of my money goes to research, and how will it be spent elsewhere? The Gateway uses 99¢ of every dollar received for research; most other organizations spend much of your donation on administrative fees, overhead, creating awareness campaigns, and running other programs that have nothing to do with funding cancer research.
Suggest The Gateway
Suggest The Gateway as a worthy recipient of fundraising efforts by your church, synagogue or other religious institution or community group.
Buy a Demand Cures TodaySM T-Shirt
Buy a Demand Cures TodaySM t-shirt, baseball cap or button and wear it! The proceeds help The Gateway and you’ll be wearing a portable conversation starter. (And the next time you host a BBQ, wear a Demand Cures TodaySM apron while you tend the grill.)
Get Your Local Coffee Shop Involved
Talk to your local café or coffee shop about posting the Demand Cures TodaySM fact sheet.
Give a Meaningful Gift
Give a gift with real meaning: In lieu of the usual gift exchange during the holidays, consider donating to The Gateway for Cancer Research. Give your loved ones cards explaining your donation and encouraging them to consider doing the same thing.

Speak To Your Local Scouting Organizations
