How do wedding favor donations work?
Instead of buying traditional wedding favors for their guests, a bride and groom may designate their wedding favor in honor or in memory of a family member or friend, and make a contribution to the American Institute for Cancer Research.
The couple can share their gift through a selection of personalized wedding favor announcements for their reception tables: scrolls, table tent cards or bookmarks.
With any order, the couple will receive complimentary wedding invitation insert cards that encourage guests to make a contribution in honor of their wedding, in lieu of traditional gifts.
What is a typical donation amount?
We suggest $2–$5 per guest. The minimum contribution to receive personalized favors is $200.

What is an invitation insert?
With any order the couple will receive complimentary wedding invitation inserts. Guests can make a tax-deductible gift in honor of the lucky couple as a wedding gift, and AICR will notify the bride and groom.
How many announcements can a bride or groom order?
The number of scrolls, table tent cards or bookmarks you receive is determined by your gift amount. See the wedding gift form for more information.
You can order as many of the wedding invitation cards as you like.
How long will it take to receive my announcements?
If you choose expedited shipping ($35) you will receive your personalized announcements within 7 days (US deliveries only). With standard shipping ($10), you will receive your announcements within 10 days (US deliveries only).
How much of my gift will be tax-deductible?
You can deduct the amount of the donation, minus the cost of goods and services, which will include the wedding favors, invitations, and shipping charges, etc. You will receive a gift acknowledgment which will specify what portion of your donation is tax-deductible.
