Matching Donations

Good news from CURE! -

CURE Childhood Cancer is thrilled to announce that we have received a challenge from dear friends Tom and Chris Glavine, Michael and Lauren Gearon and John and Ellen Yates, active philanthropists to the organization for many years. On August 16, 2010 Don Campbell, President of the CURE Board of Directors announced the 2010-2011 CURE Challenge to potential new donors and current friends and family. “The CURE Challenge will match dollar for dollar any new gifts and increased gifts from our current friends to the Annual Giving Campaign for this fiscal year. We are very grateful to the Glavines, Gearons and Yates families for their extraordinary commitment to CURE! With friends like these, we are confident that childhood cancers can be cured in our lifetime!”

How to participate:

Give a new gift to CURE's Annual Campaign and the gift will be matched dollar for dollar up to $125,000.

For current donors, give a gift to CURE's Annual Campaign of an amount higher than last year's gift and the increase will be matched dollar for dollar up to $125,000.

All money raised by the CURE Challenge will support the establishment of the Carlos S. Alvarado, M.D. Pediatric Cancer Research Fund and directed to life-saving pediatric cancer research deemed scientifically promising by CURE's Scientific Advisory Council.”
