Fundraising for Susan G. Komen Greater Pennsylvania
PLANNING A FUNDRAISING ACTIVITY FOR KOMEN GREATER PA
Over three decades ago, pink was just another color. Today, pink often symbolizes and is associated with breast cancer awareness. But pink is more than just a color, it is more than just a symbol; it is an opportunity for you to join the Susan G. Komen Greater Pennsylvania Affiliate in turning awareness into action, to be… More Than Pink.
We are honored to be contacted so often by passionate members of our community wanting to organize an event or promotion benefiting breast cancer awareness and research. Fundraising for Komen Greater PA is a wonderful way for you – as an individual, part of a team, member of an organization – to empower the cures by raising money and awareness! An effective fundraiser can be as simple as a Friday cookie sale in your office’s break room, a slightly more involved neighborhood garage sale, or an all-out event complete with refreshments and commemorative tees. The important thing to remember is that no matter how you choose to fundraise, every dollar counts!
Here is a great list of fundraising ideas
TAP INTO ESTABLISHED FUNDRAISERS & EVENTS
Option 1: You may want to consider not using the Komen name/logo and instead making a general statement that the funds raised will go to a local breast health organization or breast cancer research and support. We would be honored to receive funds raised and would give public recognition for your donation.
Option 2: Rally for the Cure® has expanded their well-established golf program to other events. You can now plan a Rally for the Cure® program for sporting events like golf and tennis, dinner events such as wine-tasting or group/club activities such as a bridge or book clubs.
