Companies We Love
For the AACR to achieve its mission to prevent and cure all types of cancer, the organization relies upon corporate and community partners to help raise awareness and funds. Our UNITE for Cancer Research program provides a variety of ways for businesses to engage with the AACR.
Some companies are supporting the AACR through inspiring cause marketing partnerships.
Jostens, a company that sells products to celebrate life’s milestones, held a fundraising campaign to raise awareness for breast cancer during October and November 2020. During this time, Jostens sold Cancer Awareness t-shirts and donated a portion of sales to the AACR. The campaign raised $500 for lifesaving cancer research. Jostens was searching for non-profits that focused on cancer research and loved that the AACR supports research across all cancer types. Their support to the AACR shows that we are stronger together.
Jose Pepper’s Mexican Restaurant has supported the AACR since 2014. In October 2020, the restaurant chain hosted a fundraiser at all 14 of its locations in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Jose Peppers sold their special edition pink fried ice cream and donated a portion of each purchase to the AACR to support research for all cancer types. The event raised $10,000 for the AACR during this time. Thank you to Jose Pepper’s for their longtime support of the AACR and its mission.
The AACR is grateful for its corporate partners who help drive progress against cancer through their generosity.Return to Philanthropy Brief, Spring 2021 Issue
