Ways to partner with the Irish Cancer Society

We know different companies like to do things in different ways. That’s why we offer a range of options from which you can choose, from sponsoring a campaign to setting up a payroll-giving system.

Strategic Partnerships

Strategic partners are companies that support our work in a number of ways, from volunteering 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 partnership.

Sponsor a campaign, event and/or programme

The Irish Cancer Society runs major awareness campaigns, programmes 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 employees, customers and people across Ireland.

Cause related marketing

Linking your product or service with us will help customers become more engaged with your brand. At the same time you will help fund cancer research and support services for people affected by cancer, throughout Ireland.

We have extensive experience in delivering cause-related marketing initiatives across a wide variety of industries.

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 taking part in one of our active challenges to a virtual or in person table quiz.

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.

Corporate Grant giving

We have various projects and services to dedicate your grant towards and we will work with you to ensure your funds make an impact to support cancer patients and their families across Ireland. Our due diligence and impact reporting ensures your funds are spent where they are needed most.

Corporate donation

Donate in memory of a colleague or to celebrate a work occasion, your donation will help support those that need it most. As well as giving online through cancer.ie there are lots of other ways you can donate to support cancer patients. Find out more about the different options to help you decide the best way to give. 

Matched giving

Increase employee engagement by matching the funds your employees raise through their fundraising activities, volunteering or donations to the Irish Cancer Society. Matched giving allows your employees to chance to boost their fundraising efforts since their employer matches the money they’ve raised.

Volunteer with your colleagues

Why not help out at our warehouse or volunteer to shake buckets on the street during Daffodil Day. Rather than engaging in hands-on volunteering why not share your professional or technical knowledge through skill-based volunteering. 

Help us with our early detection awareness work

Help us spread our early detection and cancer awareness messaging within your organisation and with your customers through in-store or office based promotion activity and across your social media channels.

Hold a cancer awareness talk at your workplace

We would be more than happy to arrange one of our nursing team to visit your workplace or hold a virtual talk for your colleagues.

Take on our team active challenges

Take on one of our many active challenges either individually or as a team e.g. Marathon in a Month or our Daffodil Day Steps challenge.
