School Specific Fundraising Ideas: This document shares fundraising ideas based on grade level.
Pin-Up Campaign: Whether you have a retail store or a prominent space in your office, ask your customers to donate and write their name on the ribbon card. Then, post the cards for all to see! Make shapes with your cards, spell out HOPE or CURE to add to the fun.
Dress Casual Day: Employees can wear jeans or themed-clothes but only if they donate to the cause! Schedule a dress down day with your HR team, email out to the office and watch your colleagues get into the spirit.

Would you like to lead the team or join the team?
This isn’t what I wanted.
Welcome to our Team Page. We’ve formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.
There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It’s providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.
How We Support the American Cancer Society
Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.
