A corporate matching gift is an easy way to increase the impact of a personal contribution to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC). it is a benefit that many corporations offer to their staff. Corporations may double, triple, or even quadruple charitable gifts on behalf of Canadian employees. By taking advantage of a company's matching gift program, you can generate an additional gift that can double or triple your contribution.
Who offers matching gifts?*
Sixty-five percent of Fortune 500 companies match employee donations, as do many other companies in Canada. Canadian-based companies (or companies with a large number of Canadian employees) that match donations include but are not limited to:
Bank of Montreal
Bell Canada Enterprises
Royal Bank of Canada
Sun Life Financial
However, it isn't only industry leaders who offer matching gift programs. Millions of Canadians work for companies that want to support the community and will match donations.
Here's how to make a matching gift:
- Ask your human resources department about your company's matching gift policy.
- If your company participates, send the completed employer-provided form to LLSC with your donation.
- Your company sends the matching gift to LLSC once they receive our verification.
Please mail all gifts and forms to:
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada
2 Lansing Square, Suite 804
Toronto, ON M2J 4P8
LLSC's Charitable Business number is 10762 3654 RR0001.

Workplace Giving Campaigns
LLSC welcomes gifts through workplace giving campaigns.
If you participate in the United Way campaigns, or if your company conducts its own workplace giving drive, designating LLSC for your workplace contributions is an important way to help cure blood cancers.
