Corporate Involvement

With the support from hundreds of companies and thousands of employees great strides are being made in the fight against cancer. We are grateful for the many corporations that support vital work being done at Karmanos Cancer Institute through work place giving programs.

Corporate Donations

are a wonderful way to show your support of the Institute. This program allows you the flexibility to directly support research for a specific cancer or a program of your choice. We will work with you to determine where your funds fit best. Examples of corporate donations are: an unrestricted gift, funding research, sponsoring a program, hosting a promotion, cause marketing, and hosting a fundraiser.

Sponsor an Event

Becoming a sponsor of the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute's signature events is a great way to bring cancer under control. There are opportunities to support these events through a variety of sponsorship levels and efforts.

Payroll Deduction

is a great way to donate to the cause most near and dear to your heart. Payroll deduction gives you the flexibility to spread your donation over the course of a year, making it easier and more convenient to support Karmanos. Contact your human resources department to give through payroll deduction.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many companies and foundations offer matching gift programs to encourage employees and their spouses, board members, and retirees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!

Complimentary Health Seminars

The Karmanos Cancer Institute is dedicated to providing vital cancer awareness information within our community.  It is through our dedication to this initiative that we are offering complimentary health seminars for your organization. The Karmanos community education department will present to your company or organization anywhere within Southeastern Michigan. Presentations can be tailored to fit your specific needs. Please contact Didi Johnston at (313) 576-8108 or email if you would like more information or to book your presentation today!  

Host a Jean Day

Hosting a Jean day or dress down day is an easy way to get colleagues involved in the issues that matter most to you. For a small donation, allow participants to wear jeans or dress down for the day.
