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 North Louisiana 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 if you are interested in entering into an agreement with Komen North Louisiana, please complete the Application to conduct a special event.
If your planning a special event in Northeast Louisiana please contact Jessie Tucker at JTucker@komennorthlouisiana.org
If your planning a special event in Northwest Louisiana please contact Megan Smith at MSmith@komennorthlouisiana.org
Some fundraising ideas include
1. Pink out athletic games (schools, colleges, and universities). Pink our your schools volleyball, basketball, football game.
2. Jeans Day. These work well at elementary, middle, and high schools to raise funds to benefit Komen North Louisiana.
3. Fundraising events. We love to be a part of a local event such as a rodeo, health fair, or a softball tournament.
4. Tee shirt sales. Selling tshirts to raise money is a great way to make a donation to Susan G. Komen North Louisiana.
Check out some 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.
