DIY Fundraisers

About.jpg

Throughout the year, dedicated individuals set up fundraisers. Some of these fundraisers include: bowling parties, concerts, salsa dancing parties, tennis tournaments, bake sales, walks, motorcycle rides... virtually any type of event where you can gather friends, family and community for a common goal—to support cancer research. 

Fundraising Tips to Get You Started

When you are soliciting donations or team members, remember what makes Gateway for Cancer Research unique:

  • 99¢ of every dollar Gateway receives goes directly to fund Phase I and Phase II clinical trials
  • Helping cancer patients feel better and live longer
  • Gateway invests in breakthrough research that is both targeted and precise
  • Patients have a voice

Harness the power of social media tools like Facebook and Twitter. Write a blog about your event or participation and include a link to Gateway and the cancer research you are funding.
