How to Fundraise

Making contact with as many people as possible is the key to fundraising. If you let them know you have committed to Race for the Cure, chances are that your friends and family will be more than happy to help and be part of your fundraising campaign. But your fundraising can be even more successful if you go beyond your inner circle. Here we have gathered together a general grab-bag of approaches to help you towards success in your fundraising efforts.

Fundraising is easy with online fundraising tools! When you registered for the Race you automatically received your own fundraising website which can be personalized. Start now by logging in, and encouraging everyone you know to visit your site, see what you are doing in the fight against breast cancer and make a donation on your behalf.

Mail-in gifts to Susan G. Komen Oregon and SW Washington at 1500 SW 1st Ave. Portland, OR 97201. Make sure to write which team/participant the gift is direct towards to be credited in your fundraising goal.


Race for the Cure is on Facebook. Become our friend. You can also fundraise on your Facebook page from your fundraising page or use our handy app!

Make a Party

Do you have a favorite restaurant that you have achieved 'regular' status at? Host an event and have a fundraising party! 


Just send an email or message to a friend or family member. You would be surprised how many people would be willing to donate by simply asking!

Donation Boxes

Involve local businesses, clubs, churches, hospitals, sororities and fraternities, alumni organizations or day care in setting up and monitoring collections using donation boxes.

Office Fun

Get a jar for the office and set some fun fundraising goals. Reach your goals and win an office party or someone shaves their head!


Have a raffle at your organization, trade tickets for donations and win fun prizes while getting closer to reaching your fundraising goal.

Own a Business?

Do a promotion at your business and donate a portion of the proceeds towards your fundraising goal!

Car Wash

Hold a car wash on a nice and sunny day (When that ever happens!) 

Bake Sale

Baked goods and snacks have been tried and true for many schools and offices. Who can resist a delicious treat?
