Fundraising for Komen

Planning a Fundraising Activity?

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 North Central Alabama Affiliate of Komen for the Cure® 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.

We are very appreciative of our supporters, their enthusiasm and good intentions and we want to support these generous efforts as fully as we can. As good stewards of the funds entrusted to us, it is imperative that we maintain compliance with IRS regulations, tax laws and “best practices” established for 501c3 organizations. Please review our event guidelines document and how we can help in.

If after you’ve read the guidelines, you are interested in entering into an agreement with the Komen North Central Alabama Affiliate, please fill out the Relationship Proposal Form online.

For any questions regarding Third Party or Fundraising events please contact Ginger Pegues, Director of Development at 205.263.1704 or

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:


Option 1: 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. Take action in the fight against breast cancer by hosting a Rally for the Cure® Golf, Tennis or Social Event. You select the date and format. Rally provides all the materials including a prize, participant favors, event decorations and important breast health information. Make a commitment today to educate your friends, family and community on the importance of early detection. Host a Rally for the Cure event! Learn how you can become a Rally Ambassador.


Option 2: 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.
