Ways to Give Back
Honorarium & Memoriam
Consider giving to CanCare in memory of a loved one or friend or in lieu of flowers. We will send a note to the family or a designee on your behalf recognizing your gift to CanCare in memory of your loved one.
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:
9575 Katy Freeway, Suite 428
Houston, TX 77024
