The money you raise is donated directly to the Dear Jack Foundation’s programs LifeList and Breathe Now and helps to fund our program partnership with Cancer for College. To learn more about our programs and partnerships, please visit our ‘About’ and ‘Programs’ pages.
We like to spread the love across all of our programs, so not exactly. However, we can promise you that the dollars you raise will go directly to one of our Dear Jack programs or partners.
Yes, we gladly accept company match donations. Companies have varying protocols on how they process matching donations. Please contact your company administrator for more information if you are unclear of your employer’s guidelines or process. Matching donation checks that are received AFTER the fundraising deadline will be accepted BUT NOT APPLIED towards your fundraiser. Please notify the Dear Jack Foundation if we should be expecting a company match on your behalf. It is up to the donor to track if/when matches should be received. Matches will not be applied toward your fundraiser until the Dear Jack Foundation has received the actual payment. Please note that often times it takes 30-60 days for employers to process match requests and that your request is not guaranteed by your employer. Your company should direct match requests to: firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Dear Jack Foundation, 3853 Walnut Street #120, Denver, CO, 80205.
All donations must be received by 11/11/2019 at 11:59 PM MST
