Have you been thinking about donating your hair to help make wigs for cancer patients?

I want to...get active
It's time to get moving! Whether it's running, swimming, paddling or hiking, physical activity can be more than just a workout. It can also be a great way to raise funds for the fight against cancer.
There are two ways to do it. You can participate in an established local athletic challenge that currently supports the Canadian Cancer Society.
Or, you can plan your own sporting activity as a solo event or one involving friends and family.
Either way, we can help you get moving towards a successful fundraiser.
I want to...sell my stuff
Are you ready to clean out that old comic book collection? Or dig out the basement for some spring cleaning? Maybe you make jewelry or sew clothes or paint and you want to sell your work for a good cause.
Whatever you sell, wherever you sell it, your stuff can help save lives. Register now to get started.
I want to...play golf
Golf season may feel too short for those passionate players across Canada. But this season, you can make hitting the links more meaningful by raising funds while you play.
You may be thinking about organizing a tournament at your local course or just getting a foursome together for a friendly game. We'll give you the support you need to help turn your golf fundraiser into a success.
I want to...celebrate
Do you have a birthday coming up? Are you planning your wedding and want to find a way to support a cause you care about on your big day? Or, do want to acknowledge someone special in your life who has been touched by cancer?
If you are planning a celebration, consider asking for donations instead of gifts.
We can provide you with everything you need, including acknowledgment cards to give to your guests, to ensure that your thoughtful gesture makes a real impact.
I want to...do something else
What do you love to do? What if we told you that you could turn your hobby into a meaningful fundraiser?
Plan a movie marathon...cook dinner for friends...host a chess tournament...set up a lemonade stand...make scrapbooks...the possibilities are endless. Combine your personal passion with our fundraising tools and soon you will be raising funds to fight cancer while doing something you love.

Fund life-saving cancer research. More people are surviving cancer than ever before. Today, 62% of people diagnosed with cancer will survive compared to only 25% in the 1940s when we began funding research.
Stop cancer before it starts. Our researchers are leading the fight to prevent cancer while we promote healthy lifestyles and advocate for policies that protect our health.
Ensure no one facing cancer is alone by offering compassionate services and support to those living with cancer and their families and friends.
Empower Canadians with information about cancer to help them make informed choices about their health.
