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 Colorado South Affiliate of Komen for the Cure® partners with others because it benefits both parties in terms of public awareness. Thank you for considering the Komen Colorado South Affiliate to be the beneficiary of your fundraising effforts and ideas.

What you need to know first:

  • The Komen name and logo are registered trademarks; therefore, you must receive written permission (in the form of a legal agreement) before using them in any promotional material.
  • The Affiliate cannot grant permission for placement of the Komen logo on products.
  • The Affiliate cannot provide administrative or logistical assistance for the event (selling tickets, sending email messages to our supporters, rovising tax receipts to sponsors and participants, etc.)
  • The Affiliate cannot be a beneficiary of funds raised solely through the sale of alcohol.

We want to make the process of fundraising for our Affiliate as easy as possible. Consider the following four options for supporting Komen with your event:

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 social events like tennis tournaments, dinner events such as wine-tasting, or group/club activities such as a bridge or book clubs.  Click here to learn how you can become a Rally Ambassador.

Option 2: Using the trademarked/registered/licensed Komen name and/or logo requires a contractual agreement between your event and our local Affiliate. If you would like to use the Komen Colorado South name and/or logo, please contact Mallory at specialevents@komencoloradosouth for further information. This contractual agreement also allows the use of website and eblasts to advertise your event.

Option 3:  You may want to consider not using the Komen name and/or 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.
