Workplace Giving

Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for businesses and their employees to support PCC. By participating in or hosting a workplace giving program for PCC, you advance our mission and make impact on the prostate cancer community.

Sign up today and help make a difference in the fight against prostate cancer. See below for more information or contact Amy Newfield at 416-441-2131 x. 277 or amy.newfield@prostatecancer.ca.

Who can participate?

Any business can create a workplace giving program, no matter the size of your company. Every dollar truly makes a difference. For example, if 100 people from your company gave $1 a week for a year, you would generate $5,200 to be used toward the fight against prostate cancer.

Why Workplace Giving?

This program is a win-win-win for everyone involved:

Employers:
  • Receive recognition in our Annual Report publication if you raise $5,000 or more
  • Promote your organization's commitment to giving back
  • Offer exciting leadership opportunities for your employees and increase employee morale

Employees:
  • Make automatic, convenient, tax-receipted gifts through payroll deduction or by cheque or credit card
  • Support the most common cancer affecting men in Canada, prostate cancer
  • Can rely on consistent funding for prostate cancer research, support, education, and awareness programs
  • Accelerate progress toward the ultimate goal of eliminating prostate cancer

When can you start a program?

Companies can participate all year round and can begin at any time.
