The IMF's Peer-to-Peer FUNdraising Program 

What sets our Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Program (P2P) apart from all the others? Two words: Support and Guidance. You can fundraise for multiple myeloma and join many other P2P 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 program, all with support and guidance from our P2P team.  

Since 1997, we have been working with people just like you to create and produce fundraisers. These fundraisers are born from your ideas. We are with you every step of the way! Anyone can participate – you can be 8 or 80. Also, fundraisers can be as easy as hosting a bake sale or luncheon, or as elaborate as a golf tournament or a Run/Walk. Just reach out to the IMF's Assistant Director of Development, Peer-to-Peer Fundraising, Kimberly Francis at [email protected] for assistance in organizing your fundraiser now.

Miracles For Myeloma 5K Walk/Run Organizer
When you do a race you have no idea how many people you are going to touch, even if it’s not just myeloma-related and it’s so meaningful. It’s not just runners at a race; it’s the people that make it up that make it special.

Peer to Peer logo

The IMF Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Fundraising Team is so excited to invite you to work with us to organize your fundraiser!  

Brian Novis, our Founder, once said, “One person can make a difference, two people can make a miracle.” Together, you and I will create miracles. 

Often after diagnosis, people ask, what can I do for you? They want to help in any way. Hosting a fundraiser gives others the opportunity to become involved and support you while also supporting the IMF’s many programs.  

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, the IMF P2P Team can help add a fundraising element to your event to make it successful.  

The IMF’s P2P team is here to help every step of the way. Call or email us at the IMF to help make your event a success. Reach out to Kimberly to start the process at [email protected].
