Help us secure our operating costs by donating to directly underwrite our organizational budget which will allow us to donate 100% of fundraising dollars to cancer research.
DONATE DIRECTLY TO CANCER RESEARCH
Make a donation to cancer research and 100% will go to fund collaborative research and clinical trials at San Diego’s 3 NCI cancer center – Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute—and Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.
Matching Corporate Gift
Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even triple the amount of your gift! Ask your Human Resources Department to consider matching your donations to Padres Pedal the Cause!
Who do I talk to at my company about this?
Normally your HR representative will be able to direct you to the company’s intranet or correct paperwork and will be able to walk you through the process.
What will I need to submit my request?
You will need the tax receipt you received from Pedal the Cause either by email or mail (depending on if you made your donation online or sent a check in).
Typically it will take a couple of weeks, depending on when you submit your paperwork and your companies’ payout schedule. Companies review each request on a quarterly basis and we have found that 6-8 weeks is a normal payout schedule ONCE approved. Please ask your HR rep for their payout schedule.
