Cancer Support Community Central Ohio hosts two signature fundraising events: our 2016 Charity Golf Classic and our Night of Chocolate. Both provide a way for individuals to support our organization while having fun along the way.
However, if you cannot or choose not to attend one of these events, we encourage you to organize your own fundraising event and donate the proceeds to Cancer Support Community. These types of events are sometimes called third-party fundraisers, independent fundraising events or grassroots fundraisers. They are an effective and efficient way for a nonprofit organization to raise funds in today’s economy.
Whether it’s a bowl-a-thon, a cross-country hike or a wine-tasting event in your home, the key is to choose an event you can get excited about. This will look a little different for each person, but we’re here to help bring your ideas to life and give you the tools to be successful.
