Fundraising for Komen
We are honored to be contacted so often by passionate members of our community wanting to organize an event or promotion benefitting breast cancer awareness, research and Komen Arkansas. The Komen Arkansas Affiliate partners with others because it benefits both parties in terms of public awareness.
Planning a Third Party Event
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 read the guidelines, you are interested in entering into an agreement with the Komen Arkansas Affiliate, please fill out the Application for Third Party Event/Relationship Proposal Form on line. Or, you may download a printable form to complete and return to Susan G. Komen Arkansas Affiliate, 904 Autumn Road, Suite 500, Little Rock, AR 72211.
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 Arkansas. Please note that you may not begin promoting your event until you have a signed agreement.
If you decide that the size of your event does not warrant the effort to follow these guidelines, there are three other ways to support Komen Arkansas:
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: Passionately Pink You may want to consider registering for Passionately Pink for the Cure®. This program allows individuals, business and clubs/groups to fundraise for Komen. The website provides resources for your fundraising activities as well as a customizable web page. Learn how you can become Passionately Pink!
Option 3: Rally for the Cure 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.
