FAQ

Below are some of the most common questions from ourHope fundraisers over the years. If you don’t see your question below, please contact the ourHope team at [email protected]

  • Do I get to choose where my funds go?

    Yes! When you create your fundraising page, one of the steps will be for you to choose where you would like your funds raised to go. We want fundraisers on ourHope to choose the cause closest to their heart — whether that be cancer research, diabetes, myeloma, HIV/AIDS, etc. We have over 30 options to choose from.

  • Is there a minimum fundraising requirement?

    No! There is no minimum requirement to fundraise through ourHope. Feel free to set a fundraising goal that you are comfortable with — from $50 to $50,000, it all makes a difference. We appreciate the time and effort our fundraisers put into reaching their goals!

  • Are donations tax-deductible?

    All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please work with your tax professional to determine eligible deductions.

  • Do you accept gifts by check?

    Yes! But we encourage everyone to give online if possible. To ensure that donations are applied to the correct fundraising page, please make sure that all check donations are made payable to City of Hope. Please list the first and last name of the fundraiser's page you are donating to on the memo line of the check.

    For example, if you are donating to Jane Smith's Ovarian Cancer Fundraiser page please write “Jane Smith” in the memo line. Please mail all check donations to City of Hope, Attn: ourHope, 1500 E. Duarte Road, Duarte CA 91010.

  • Who do I speak with if I have more questions?
