Myeloma Minute: You and Myeloma--Learn and Grow

Easy Ways to Fundraise

As an IMF volunteer said about his event, “It didn’t start as an IMF fundraiser. It simply started as something I was doing for myself, my own health, and my own peace of mind.” Imagine inviting your friends over for a movie-viewing party and simply asking them to donate to a cause you support. Fundraising for the IMF is as simple as that. Is there a bake sale, a billiards night, or a pool party in your future? To make your everyday event a fun way to fundraise, connect with the IMF’s Director of Member Events Suzanne Battaglia at [email protected] or 1-818-487-7455, ext. 227 today!
