Fundraising for Komen
We are honored to be contacted so often by passionate members of our community wanting to organize an event or promotion benefiting breast cancer awareness and research. The Central Mississippi Steel Magnolias Affiliate of Komen ® partners with others because it benefits both parties in terms of public awareness.
We want to make this process as simple as possible. In order for us to give each event and/or promotion request its due attention, we ask that you first read through the Guidelines available to assist you in planning your event or promotion. If after you’ve read the guidelines, you are interested in entering into an agreement with the Komen Central Mississippi Steel Magnolias Affiliate, please fill out the Relationship Proposal Form online. Or, you may download a PDF document to complete and return to Central Mississippi Steel Magnolias Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, PO Box 16451 Jackson, MS 39236.
Step 1: Read through our fundraising Guidelines to assist you in planning your event or promotion.
Step 2: If after you’ve read the guidelines, you are interested in entering into an agreement with the Komen Central Mississippi Steel Magnolias, complete the Third Party Fundraiser Application.
Step 3: Still have questions? contact:
Catherine Young, Executive Director
All 3rd party fundraisers are reviewed on an individual basis. Depending on the time of year, it may take up to 72 hours before you hear from Komen Central Mississippi Steel Magnolias. Please note that you may not begin promoting your event until you have a signed agreement.
If you determine that the size of your event does not warrant the effort to follow these guidelines, there are two other ways to support Komen:
Option 1: You may want to consider not using the Komen name/logo and instead making a general statement that the funds raised will go to a local breast health organization or breast cancer research and support. We would be honored to receive funds raised and would give public recognition for your donation.
Option 2: Rally for the Cure® has expanded their well-established golf program to other events. You can now plan a Rally for the Cure® program for sporting events like golf and tennis, dinner events such as wine-tasting or group/club activities such as a bridge or book clubs.
