Matching Gifts and Special Campaigns
Many employers will match employee’s charitable donations. This can sometimes double the amount received by Israel Cancer Association USA. Other companies let employees deduct contributions from their paycheck, allowing you to give a little each paycheck that can add up to a significant amount for the ICA USA. Please contact your Human Resources and/or payroll department for specific information on your company.

Every dollar helps. You can make a one time donation in any amount you choose. Fellowship Funding ($22,000 funds two years of cancer research can be paid in two installments over a two-year period ($11,000 funds half a Fellowship). See the list of current Fellowships here.
Every fellowship dollar is seed money that goes directly to the scientist NOT to their institution, and NOT for our overhead. And every fellowship is dedicated to specific scientific research by specific researchers. Your contribution – whether a donation in honor of a family member or friend, or your funding of a 2-year cancer research fellowship for $11,000 annually – will go far toward finding a cure. ICA USA is a non-profit, charitable organization. Donations are 100% tax deductible as long as no goods or services have been provided in exchange for the donation, and all our donors will receive a tax letter for their files.
