Fundraising Tips and Resources

Thousands of women and men who could not afford breast health care have received screenings, education and treatments as a result of dollars raised through fundraisers just like you. Join the fight to save lives and end breast cancer forever by committing to a personal fundraising goal today.

Here are some tips from past top Race Fundraisers.

  • Set a personal goal today (we suggest $200 or $100 more than you raised last year).
  • Make the first gift yourself to show your commitment!
  • Utilize your Participant Center. Take advantage of online tools including a customizable web page and email templates (login now) to ask friends and family to make a donation to support you.
  • Spread the word on Social Media.  Don’t underestimate the power of Facebook and Twitter.
  • Partner with your workplace with Matching Gifts. Does your company have a matching gift program?
  • Send a letter. Reuse your holiday card mailing list.
  • Grab our new Pink Ribbon Fundraising Kit and your donors can send you with a placard to hang as a memorial on Race Day
  • Download a list of 101 Fundraising Ideas

Partner with Local Businesses

Know of a local business that would like to help fundraise? Examples include Give Back Nights at restaurants, or percentages of sales on certain days. Get creative and ask the businesses you know to help support you with your fundraising. Could you hold a car wash in their parking lot? Karaoke at their bar?  Race participants can contact our office by emailing or calling 518-250-5379 if 501c3 documentation is needed or if you would like educational materials to share at your fundraiser.
