If you’re considering supporting us, you might like to know that there’s a range of ways you can get involved.

Strategic partnerships

Strategic partners are companies that support our work in a number of ways, from volunteerism, to employee fundraising activities, to grants towards our services. By aligning themselves with our work, companies see a direct benefit to employees and customers and enjoy an ongoing association with our staff.

Employee fundraising

Employees working together for a charity increases staff morale and motivation. It is also a wonderful way to enhance teamwork and project a positive corporate image. Employee fundraising activities can range from a table quiz to a family day out. Find out more about our major fundraising drives.

Cause-related marketing

A partnership between a company and a high-profile charity such as ours builds brand loyalty, increases company sales and shows a commitment to a worthy cause. We enjoy many great cause-related marketing partnerships through our well known brands, Action Breast Cancer, Action Prostate Cancer and Cancer Research Ireland. Let us put our brands to work for you.

Corporate sponsorship

The Irish Cancer Society runs major awareness campaigns and fundraising events and activities throughout the year. The campaigns are high profile, gathering national & regional media attention and reaching people across all walks of life in Ireland. By supporting these activities companies have the opportunity to align their brand with the Irish Cancer Society and to enjoy a positive feeling with staff, customers and people across Ireland.

Events include:

Corporate social responsibility (CSR)

Donating much-needed funds makes an immediate impact at the Irish Cancer Society. Whether given to a specific programme or not, it positions your company as a generous corporate citizen.

Payroll giving

Payroll giving is a simple and effective way for employees to make regular payments to a charity directly from their salary. Many of our corporate partners will match employee gifts and donations. This is a great incentive to fundraise within a company and allows us to fund cancer services and provide support for people with cancer and their families across Ireland.
