METAVIVOR FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES
METAvivor began its research fundraising initiative in 2008, while still a small support program called Compass. In it's first year it sold metastatic breast cancer awareness pins, had yard sales, then an organ concert and Holiday Home Tour.
Today METAvivor has three annual fundraisers -- an Adventure Race in April, an Authors' Luncheon and Silent Auction in September and a Holiday Home Tour in December. While these fundraisers contribute toward our research grants, they alone are insufficient for the research we need. Donations and third party fundraisers go a long way toward making our grants possible.
THIRD PARTY FUNDRAISERS ARE CRITICAL
Third party fundraisers are critical to our metastatic breast cancer (MBC) research grants. Whether your fundraiser makes $10 or $100, $1,000 or 10,000, or $100,000 or more, 100% of it goes into our MBC research fund.
PUT ON YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER. Third party fundraisers have included, to name a few, restaurant dinners, bowling tournaments, dances, Tupperware parties, fashion shows and race participants asking family and friends to donate to METAvivor in honor of their efforts.
ASK AN ORGANIZATION TO DESIGNATE METAVIVOR A FUNDRAISER RECIPIENT. A significant number of organizations are philanthropic in nature and raise funds throughout the year to make donations to various charities. Rotary Clubs, churches, schools, social clubs, and other groups often raise funds for worthy causes, donating to different charities each year. In addition, stores often agree to donate a percentage of their proceeds for a day, a week or a month to a specific charity that appeals to them.
METAvivor welcomes your assistance in finding new sources of funding for metastatic breast cancer (MBC) research. METAvivor is the only organization that solely funds MBC research and that puts 100% of all donations and fundraiser proceeds (after expenses) into MBC research grants. METAvivor is a 100% volunteer organization, making it possible to focus incoming funds where they can do the most good -- toward saving lives.
