Planning a Fundraising Activity?

We are honored to be contacted by passionate members of our community wanting to organize an event or promotion benefiting breast cancer education, local programs, and research. In an effort to make this process as simple as possible, Komen Michigan has put together Event in the Box, a step-by-step guide to creating your own Komen fundraiser.

If you are interested in hosting your own event please fill out a Third Party Agreement Form and send it to our Community Events Coordinator, Alicia Holst.

Matching Gifts

Increase your donation with employer matching funds! Employee matching gifts are donations an employer makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions. Check with your company for more information on matching gift programs available to you or use Komen’s matching gift search. Employer matching gifts may also be available to you if you are the spouse of an employee, a retired employee or the spouse/widow/widower of a retiree.
