How does VLCM Foundation raise money?
Right now, there are three ways we raise funds for cancer research. The first--and most significant--method is the United Against Cancer golf tournament. The second is through donations not associated with any event. The third is through AmazonSmile.
Is my personal information ever shared outside VLCM Foundation?
Not without your explicit permission.
How can I support VLCM Foundation without making a donation?
If you're interested in volunteering at the United Against Cancer golf tournament, please contact Elise Bailey at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we have a need for help. Another way you can support VLCM Foundation is through AmazonSmile. Lastly, you can support us by following us on social media or our blog, and sharing anything you find interesting with the people you're close to.
How much of my donation actually supports cancer research?
100%. Donations of goods and services, or those that come from trade or MDF are the exceptions to this rule. This is something unique that we're really proud to be able to do. Read how we do this.
Does VLCM Foundation accept trade?
Yes, there is one level of sponsorship at the United Against Cancer golf tournament for which we accept trade--the Hole Sponsorship. Find more details on our tournament page.
Does VLCM Foundation accept MDF?
Since MDF cannot be used for charity purposes, funds we receive this way can't be used to support cancer research. For that reason, we approve the use of MDF funds as a form of payment on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Elise Bailey at email@example.com with inquiries.
Can I donate goods or services rather than money?
Yes! If it's something we can use, we're more than happy to accept such donations. Decreasing our costs helps us to free up money in the budget to use elsewhere and hopefully raise even more money for cancer research. Please contact Elise Bailey at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Are my donations tax deductible?
Both donations for the United Against Cancer golf tournament and donations not associated with any event are tax deductible. We are not tax experts, so please talk with yours about this.
What is VLCM Foundation's tax ID?
How much can I claim on my taxes if I make a donation?
If you make a donation not associated with any event, you can claim 100% of your donation. If you make a donation associated with the United Against Cancer golf tournament, the amount varies based on the sponsorship level at which you donate. Please contact Elise Bailey at email@example.com for more information, and make sure to speak with your tax expert about this.
