The American Cancer Society (ACS) relies on the support of donors and volunteers as it works to free the world from cancer. Those who would like to get involved with the organization can do so in many ways. In addition to accepting one-time and recurring donations through its website, ACS oversees a planned giving program for individuals looking to make a lasting impact by including the society in their estate plan.
ACS also leverages the work of volunteers to support a variety of programs and activities. These include community fundraisers, patient transportation programs, and virtual volunteer events. The organization also relies on volunteer support to advance the Cancer Action Network, which promotes laws and policies to make cancer a national priority.
One of the easiest ways to support the American Cancer Society's mission is by purchasing products from an ACS partner organization. 1-800 FLOWERS, iTunes, and eBay are among the society's numerous retail partners. Shopping on Amazon through the AmazonSmile program can also benefit ACS. More information about how to support the American Cancer Society is available at www.cancer.org.
