WELCOME TO THE IMF'S GRASS-ROOTS FUNDRAISING PROGRAM! We would like to introduce you to the many creative ways in which you can help the IMF reach its goal of bringing education and awareness to all communities. You can help by simply hosting a member fundraiser in your community. Since 1997, we’ve been working with IMF members just like you to create and produce their own member fundraisers. They range from garage sales to musical festivals, from bake sales to afternoon tea and luncheons, from golf tournaments to 5Ks, and our members range in age from 8 to 80!

We will help you from beginning to end, including providing you with all the materials and support you’ll need to host a successful event. We will even provide you with your very own event web page where you can promote your event, accept registrations, see how much you have raised and thank your supporters. The site will allow for people to make secure, online contributions to the IMF that will automatically be credited toward your event! We will also provide you with free educational materials to help spread the word via social media, and educate the people in your community about multiple myeloma and the IMF. We will be there through the entire process!

Feel free to peruse these pages to get a look at what other members are doing to help raise money for the IMF's programs. Perhaps you will be inspired to contribute or attend one of the events in your area, or even create one of your own!

If you have any questions about the IMF's Member FUNdraising program, or would like to set up your own member fundraiser, please contact Suzanne Battaglia at 800-452-CURE (2873) or by email at sbattaglia@myeloma.org and we'll get started!

We suggest you choose something you already do. If you have a summer BBQ with friends, do garage or bake sales, host a picnic at a park we’ll help you turn it into a pubic awareness and fundraising opportunity.

Thinking about organizing a walk in the park, marathon or 5K, swim-a-thon, golf tournament, or any other activity that challenges your community to step up? We’ll help you get started and support you throughout, with a dedicated web page for your event, eblasts and social media, and advice on how to do it.

Celebrating a milestone event wedding, anniversary, birthday? Let us help you put a public awareness and fundraising element to it with very little effort!

We encourage you to share your story with all us, to help inspire others. Each member fundraiser held, provides support to our myeloma community and hope to all. Your tale of inspiration may the reason that someone decides to host a member fundraiser. To share your story please click HERE
