Questions and Answers on donating

Is my donation received?

Yes, and it is directly applied to cancer research. Because what helps against cancer? Research. Since 1990, we have been investing in cancer research to gain new insights into the causes and development of cancer, to develop new and better treatments, and to improve the quality of life for patients with cancer and their loved ones.

I've reached my donation target. Now what?

Well done! Your fundraising campaign is ongoing. You can continue to raise funds, adjust your fundraising goal, or extend duration of the campaign. To do so, just login and edit the campaign page accordingly.

Will I receive a donation receipt?

Yes, all donors will automatically receive a donation receipt by postal mail in January, given that you entered your contact information. Donations to the Swiss Cancer Research foundation are tax deductible.
