What sets our peer-to-peer fundraising program apart from all the others? Two words: Support and Guidance. You can fundraise for multiple myeloma and join many other grassroots events happening across the country with friends of the IMF. Our volunteer fundraisers help raise multiple myeloma awareness in their communities while raising much needed funding for our essential research, patient education, support, and advocacy programs.
Since 1997, we have been working with people just like you to create and produce fundraisers which come from your ideas. We are with you every step of the way! Anyone can participate – you can be 8 or 80 – and fundraisers can be as easy as hosting a bake sale or luncheon, and as elaborate as a golf tournament or a Run/Walk. Just reach out to IMF's Senior Director of Member Events, Suzanne Battaglia, to get assistance to organize your fundraiser now.
Not sure where to start when creating a fundraiser campaign? Events can be big or small. Every dollar counts. Here are some ideas of what past fundraisers have done.
See how others have found inspiration and created a movement of their own in the fight against multiple myeloma. Connect and join in their efforts.
Senior Director, Member Events
I am so excited to be able to invite you to participate with me in organizing a member fundraiser! Together, you and I, and my teammate Ilana Kenville, can create miracles.
If the thought of organizing a fundraiser feels overwhelming, think of this: Do you ever host a dinner party? Or take a walk in the park? Or celebrate a milestone? Or meet up with friends for an activity you love? If so, we can help you put a fundraising element to it.
Do you shop on Amazon? If you use AmazonSmile, then choose the IMF as your preferred charity. Amazon will donate a percentage of everything you buy to the IMF. Do you have a vehicle of any kind, working or not, that you'd like to donate? We can tell you how.
If you can say yes to any of these questions, you're already well on your way to creating a public awareness and fundraising opportunity. And the IMF is here to help every step of the way. Call or email me and we will help you make it happen.
