Fundraising 101

Thousands of women and men who could not afford breast health care have received screenings, education and patient support services as a result of dollars raised through fundraisers just like you. Be More Than Pink and commit to a personal fundraising goal today.

Fundraising is easy with online fundraising tools and social media! When you registered for the Race, you automatically received your own fundraising website. Your website is your starting point for spreading the word and maximizing your fundraising impact. Start now by logging in, and encouraging everyone you know to visit your site, see what you are doing in the fight against breast cancer and make a donation on your behalf.

If every Komen Greater St. Louis Race participant raised $100, the local fight against breast cancer could be $1.5 million stronger.

  • Set a personal goal today. (We suggest $200, which could provide two life-saving mammograms.)

  • Spread the word on social media. Don’t underestimate the power of Facebook and Twitter.
