Fundraising for Komen
Planning a Fundraising Activity?
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. Susan G. Komen Sacramento Valley partners with others because it benefits both parties in terms of public awareness.
We want to make this process as simple as possible. In order for us to give each event and/or promotion request its due attention, we ask that you first read through the Guidelines available to assist you in planning your event or promotion. If after you’ve read the guidelines, you are interested in entering into an agreement with the Susan G. Komen Sacramento Valley, please fill out the Relationship Proposal Form online. Or, you may download a Word document to complete and return to Shannon Bowley, Sacramento Valley Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, 9310 Tech Center Drive, Suite 250, Sacramento, CA 95826.
All 3rd party fundraisers are reviewed on an individual basis. Depending on the time of year, it may take up to 72 hours before you hear from Komen Sacramento. Please note that you may not begin promoting your event until you have a signed agreement.
If you determine that the size of your event does not warrant the effort or follow these guidelines, there are two other ways to support Komen:
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.
