WAYS TO GIVE

Ways to Give OCRA

Did you know…

  • Many employers will match charitable donations made by their employees, doubling or even tripling your impact. If you are not sure if your employer matches charitable giving, this simple tool can help.
  • Often companies allow employees to automatically deduct charitable contributions from each paycheck. Connect with your HR department to add a donation to OCRA through payroll.
  • If you are a federal, state or local government employee, you can support Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance through payroll deductions as part of the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). OCRA’s CFC number is 11154.
