HOST AN EVENT
Thank you for your interest in planning an event to benefit NW Sarcoma Foundation. NW Sarcoma Foundation provides hope, education, and research to Sarcoma patients and their families, thanks to the generosity of our donors and friends, like you. From hosting a dinner party to organizing a golf tournament or donating proceeds from product sales, there are countless ways that you can raise funds to help NW Sarcoma Foundation improve the health of the public.
Types of 3rd-party events
Community Events: These are ticketed, and registration-based events hosted by a third-party that benefit NW Sarcoma Foundation. Whether it is a walk/run, wine tasting or craft fair, community events are great way to bring the community together for a good cause.
Personal Campaigns: These give any individual the power to creatively fundraise in their own way. Fundraising pages around life events, including weddings, birthdays and memorials inspire the generosity of family and friends. Other ideas include a supporter riding their bike across the continent or hosting an Oscar party for a NW Sarcoma Foundation beneficiary.
Challenge Events: Turn existing high-profile marathons, triathlons and cycling races into a fundraising opportunity. When one of our supporters decides to run in a marathon, their participation can directly benefit NW Sarcoma Foundation.
Remember: Giving is personal; find your unique and meaningful way to fundraise for NW Sarcoma Foundation.
