Creative ideas for donating

  • American Express Membership Rewards

    Did you know you can redeem your American Express Membership Rewards points for a donation to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance?

    For every 1,000 points you redeem, the Colorectal Cancer Alliance will receive a $10 donation. Click the Members Give button below to get started.

    Members Give allows you to use any American Express card to make a donation to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. Donations can be made in dollars or, if you are enrolled in the Membership Rewards program*, you can redeem your points for a donation.

    Your dollar donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, and you will receive an immediate e-mail receipt that meets IRS requirements as a record of your contribution.

    The site also enables you to set up recurring donations so you can spread out your donation over time. If you are enrolled in an American Express Loyalty program, you can earn valuable rewards with virtually every dollar you donate.

  • eBay

    Did you know that by selling items on eBay you can make donations to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance?

    The eBay Giving Works program allows you to donate from 10% to 100% (or at least 1% for eBay Motors vehicle sales) of the final sale price of an item to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. And you won’t pay any seller’s fees for the item you’re listing, as eBay credits those fees back to your account as a reward for your generosity!

    Additionally, eBay donates 100% of the donation you make through selling your item. They will not deduct any transaction or transfer fees to send your donation to us.

    Learn more about the eBay Giving Works program.
