10 Easy Ways to Raise $100 for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life

  1. Send 20 emails asking for $10. You should raise at least $100. Don’t forget to include your reason to Relay and a donation deadline.
  2. Set up a change bucket at the entrance of your campus center, dorm or apartment - be sure to make it bright, noticeable, and labeled with “Relay For Life”.
  3. Hold a bake sale with your Relay team on campus!
  4. Cancer Sucks/Suck For A Buck - Get some vaccums and have your team go Dorm to Dorm or Apartment to Apartment and offer to vaccum students rooms for a $5.00 donation!
  5. Party With A Purpose - Having a party this weekend? Charge a $5.00 cover fee or charge $5.00 per cup and donate the proceeds to Relay.
  6. Write letters to your doctors, old teachers, your dentist, and old employers asking for some hometown support.
  7. Organize a water balloon fight for a hot day (or a cold one to make it more interesting). Make 200 water balloons and sell them for 50¢ each. Don’t forget to invite your school rivals!
  8. Hold a cornhole tournament - Sign thems up throughout the week, charge a $5.00 or $10.00 entry fee and have the tournament on Friday afternoon.
  9. Hold a dinner for 10 friends instead of going out to eat. Ask for $10 from each friend to cover the cost and raise $100 for Relay For Life.
  10. Trash For Cash - Get your Relay team together and go Dorm to Dorm or Apartment to Apartment offering to take out everyones trash for a $1.00 donation! 

$100 can make a huge difference for the American Cancer Society and cancer patients everywhere.  Be creative with your fundraising and you’ll be amazed with the results.  


American Cancer Society Relay For Life campus events serve as a powerful way for you to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer, from helping people facing the disease in your community to ensuring cancer is a thing of the past for future generations. The Relay For Life movement features campus and community events that offer an opportunity to honor the cancer survivors in your life, promote how you can reduce your cancer risk, and raise money to help find a cure. Today, with the support of thousands of student volunteers, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day. And we won't stop until we end cancer once and for all!
