Double Your Impact on Cancer With A Challenge Match
We're starting off our fall fundraising drive with a unique and exciting challenge: a local family will double the amount we raise this month, up to $20,000!

Every legitimate charity should provide you with a receipt for your gift, either by email or (preferably) through the postal service.

It would be nice if they say "thank you" too.
