On Giving Tuesday, Dec. 1, tune in to WEEI’s special broadcast, Giving Tuesday to benefit the Jimmy Fund presented by Arbella Insurance, and hear stories of hope and inspiration for a cancer-free future.
Your gift this Giving Tuesday supports innovative cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and helps transform cancer treatment, so patients and their families can spend more time together. From now through December 1, your gift will be doubled, thanks to a generous $50,000 matching challenge from Arbella Insurance Group. Donate today!
Matching funds (up to $10,000 per donor) will be directed to unrestricted support for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and may not be applied toward event fundraising.
