Volunteer Your Time

Organize a Fundraising Event

Hosting or organizing your own fundraising event is a terrific way to raise money for lifesaving cancer research - and offer friends and family an opportunity to have fun. Take a look at some of the events that were organized to benefit Fred Hutch.

Here's how to get started:

Step 1: Decide what kind of fundraiser you want to host. It could be a bake sale, an auction, a golf tournament, a performance - there are so many creative ways to raise money and get your community involved. Browse previous fundraisers for inspiration. See our toolkit for more detailed suggestions on organizing your event.

Step 2: Contact the Hutch and complete our External Fundraising Events Proposal and Agreement. Tell us about your event and ask questions. We look forward to hearing from you.

Step 3: Know the facts. Learn about our research and mission so that you can share with your family and friends why you are supporting the Hutch and where their donation is going.

Step 4: After your proposal has been approved, check out the Center’s Personal Fundraising Pages. We strongly recommend creating your own Personal Fundraising Page as part of your fundraising strategy. You can use this online tool to receive and record your contributions, or include it along with other offline fundraising options.

Step 5: After your event, let us know how it went!
