Plan a Fundraiser

Have fun, spread the word about the Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia, and raise money to support local families living with cancer. By hosting a fundraiser to support the Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia, you’re doing all this — and we are so grateful to you for it!

What counts as a fundraiser? Pretty much anything! Our supporters have held birthday parties where the only presents accepted were donations to the Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia. We’ve seen yard sales, barbecues, 5Ks, bowl-a-thons, make-up parties and more — all put on by wonderful members of our community who believe, like we do, that no one should have to face cancer alone.

Next Steps

Ready to get started? Ask us how we can (and, unfortunately, how we can’t) help you with your fundraiser, see our tips for hosting and promoting a fundraiser, get the details on getting tax receipts and acknowledgement letters for your supporters — and more!

Then, please fill out our Planning Packet — to let us know about your fundraiser and your needs — and either fax it to 215.441.3295 or e-mail it to Kathy O’Mara at

We’ll be back in touch!

Thank you again so much for wanting to help local families living with cancer by hosting a fundraiser to benefit the Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia!
