Donation and Tax FAQs
What am I supporting with my donation to FIT Together?
By donating to FIT Together you are supporting us in fulfilling our mission and you are contributing to making our vision for the future a reality.
Mission: The mission of FIT Together is to provide patients with cancer accessible exercise programs that are proven effective, appropriate and safe, embedded in a culture of community and support.
Vision: Our vision is for FIT Together to become one of the most trusted online exercise communities for cancer survivors and their families - no matter where they live.
Why is this cause or project important?
There are over 17 million people in the U.S. who are living with cancer. Even though exercise could help them feel better and possibly control their cancer, most remain inactive. Oftentimes this is because people can’t find a program they trust, that is accessible from anywhere, and that provides the support and community they need to be successful. Your donations will help us build our capacity and enable FIT Together to meet this important unmet need for thousands of cancer survivors.
How will the funds be used?
To date, our funding has been used solely to cover basic operating costs to maintain our course offerings, mostly to pay our instructors. To realize our mission, FIT Together is moving into a new funding phase of capacity building. The funds raised will help to ensure FIT Together can grow operationally into the future. Examples of how the funds will be used include website redesign, social media campaigns, database management, communication outreach, exercise program development and staffing.
Is my personal information secure?
Yes. FIT Together uses the Neon One platform for all our data-storage and donation activities. Neon One is PCI-DSS Level 1 compliant and re-certifies annually. Copies of our Attestation of Compliance (AOC) are available upon request.
