How We Are Working Together
The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) and the American Cancer Society have been working together since 2004 to help families coping with the loss of someone to cancer and to increase public awareness about cancer prevention and early detection. NFDA is committed to making a difference in the fight against a disease that affects millions of Americans. Through this collaboration, members receive benefits that will help them and the families they serve cope with loss. There are also opportunities to get involved and join the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer.
How You Can Help
As a leader in the communities in which you serve, you can be a champion in the fight against cancer, raising awareness of the disease, helping educate others on ways to stay well and raising lifesaving funds to benefit their community.
The American Cancer Society's Memorial Gift Program
Memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society make a difference in the fight against cancer by helping people stay well, by preventing cancer or find it at its earliest, most treatable stage; by helping people get well by being there for them around the clock during every step of their cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking research that helps us better understand, prevent, and cure cancer; and by fighting back by working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.
The memorial gift program enables individuals and families to give tribute to friends and loved ones lost to cancer. An acknowledgement card is sent to the family of the deceased, and gifts made in support of the Society's lifesaving efforts to fight cancer can help turn memories into hope for others.
Gifts can be made in three simple ways:
Special memorial gift envelopes are also available to funeral directors. You can make these envelopes available to families that wish for memorial contributions to be made to the American Cancer Society in their loved one's name. Envelopes can be ordered at no cost by filling out an order form or calling the American Cancer Society at 800-227-2345.
