Thank you for raising money locally to fund the best research nationally.

You can make a meaningful contribution in the fight to end deaths from metastatic breast cancer. It is imperative that the researchers who are dedicated to making MBC a survival condition have the necessary funding. There are many ways in which you can help raise money for METAvivor’s research grants.  


METAvivor is the only organization that solely funds MBC research through a scientific peer-review process.  In addition, we put 100% of all donations and fundraiser proceeds into MBC research grants. Anyone can raise funds for METAvivor! Whether you bring in $10 or $100 or $1,000 or $1,000,000, we guarantee that 100% goes toward grants for MBC research. Fundraisers can be individual endeavors, such as asking family and friends to donate to METAvivor in honor of a birthday, promotion, or participation in a race or other event. Fundraising events can be small (restaurant dinners, yard sales, bowling tournaments) or large (galas, auctions, fashion shows).  Many civic organizations choose a different charity every year to fund – look for these groups in your area and ask if they would consider donating to METAvivor.  To learn more about how you can support METAvivor through fundraising efforts, please contact us!  Note: All fundraising must comply with our fundraising and ribbon usage guidelines.
