How can I donate? Become a Groupie!
We are targeting to raise $45,000 in Groupie Donations this year!
One of the key components of our fundraising is donations made by family, friends, and co-workers to CancerCare directly through our “Groupie” website. Last year we raised over $45,000 in groupie donations (with the generous donation of Great-West Life Assurance which matched the funds raised by their band).
Facilitated by CancerCare Manitoba, each company, individual or band member is strongly encouraged to set up a donation page and raise a minimum of $1000. It’s easy and fun to do, you can add your own graphics and content to encourage people to donate. Each donor group sets their fundraising goals according to what they can realistically attain and we celebrate together. Last year we introduced a Fundraising Champion trophy awarded to the band that raised the most in Groupie Donations. Help your band win this prized trophy!
The CancerCare Manitoba Foundation is the only organization exclusively fundraising for CancerCare Manitoba.
CancerCare Manitoba’s main aim is to eradicate a disease consisting of more than 200 types and stages. A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. Up-to-date information regarding treatment options, resources and services are vital as patients and families make their way through the cancer journey, from diagnosis to treatment.
While CancerCare Manitoba works in partnership with Manitoba Health, some programs and services are not eligible for government funding.
Since 2000, donors from every walk of life have given over $100 million to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation to bridge this gap and help deliver the best research, patient care, treatment and support.
We are proud to support CancerCare Manitoba’s internationally-recognized team of health professionals as they provide outstanding quality care for all Manitobans and their families living with cancer.
