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.


Team & Family Fundraising Ideas

Dashboard Emails:  Send your own or one of our pre-made messages to let your people know you are leading the fight for a world without cancer! Ask them to join you or make a donation to your page with the provided link.

Download the Mobile App:  Download the app to your Android or iOS and start your mobile fundraising!  You can securely accept checks, credit card, paypal, or online payment.  It's perfect for your DIY fundraisers, too!

Comedy Night:  Ask a local comedy club to host your employee for a private event.  Sell tickets up to the venue max capacity and have a laugh while supporting the cause!

Charity Night:  Ask a local bar/restaurant to have a benefit night.  They will usually have flyers/tickets for you to invite family & friends to come enjoy a good time for a good cause.

Bake Sale:  Gather all the bakers you know and make some delicous treats!  Hold you sale in a variet of places:  PTA, fairs, town halls, offices, or other.

Dime Bottle:  Fill a standard water bottle with dimes and turn in the change.  One filled bottle usually equals $100!

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.
