Team Captain Checklist

Once you’ve registered your Team, here are some next steps:

  • Make a self -donation in any denomination to show your commitment.
  • Set a goal for the number of people you will recruit.
  • Display event materials — brochures and posters — around the office, campus, cafeterias, break rooms, gyms, and other high traffic areas. Put your name, phone number, and/or email address on the posters so people can contact you to get involved.
  • Host a kickoff meeting or event and invite the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® staff to make a presentation.
  • Send fundraising tips out to all your team members and highlight the team’s top fundraising member.
  • Create fundraising incentives for your team members encouraging them to meet or exceed their fundraising goals.
  • Remind team members to log on to their fundraising pages to record all offline donations and send thank-you notes.
  • Post a progress chart with your fundraising and recruitment goals in a visible area and update totals regularly.

Team Fundraising

Last year, Teams raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the fight to end breast cancer. That’s a huge impact! Team fundraising helps ensure that we will be able to make the biggest impact in the community.

There are two ways that teams can engage in fundraising:

  1. Each team member asks their friends, family members and co-workers to support them in their fundraising efforts by making a donation. To get tips and tools on personal fundraising, click here. 
  2. Your team can host a fundraising event. To download a list of fun and easy fundraising events, click here.

The ultimate reward is knowing you’ve brought our community miles closer to the reality of a world without breast cancer. But be sure to check out the Team Rewards page for more information on how we thank our top performing teams!
