Everyone knows the obvious ways to help a non-profit organization. You might have already given Angel Foundation a financial contribution, or taken the time to volunteer at one of our events perhaps you even helped to organize a fundraiser, or donated items to one of our silent auctions. The easiest way to help us is to simply spread the word tell your friends, family and co-workers about the important work we are doing. But there are a number of other ways to contribute to Angel Foundation’s work that you may not realize.

Several companies and non-profit organizations directly donate a portion of their proceeds to us to enable us to continue to support Twin Cities families facing cancer. With the holidays upon us, it is an opportune time to profile a few of these groups and encourage you to seek out their products and services. Not only will you help benefit Angel Foundation, you will support local organizations that believe in giving back to their community.
