Fundraising for Komen

Plan an Activity, Promotion, or Social Event

We are humbled to be contacted so often by passionate members of our community with a sincere desire to organize an event or promotion benefiting breast cancer awareness and research.  These “Do It Yourself” events extend Komen’s reach into the community and we are enthused to support your efforts with breast health information and educational materials for an even greater impact.

Setting up a Fundraising Event is simple. Please read the Fundraising Event Guidelines to answer your questions and give you some background info. If you are interested in entering into a Letter of Agreement with Komen North Jersey, fill out the Event Request Form at least 30 days prior to your event.

Once the form is received, it will be considered for approval by the Komen North Jersey staff within 5 business days. You will be contacted upon approval.

Please note that you may not begin promoting your event with the Komen North Jersey name/logo until you have a signed contract from the Affiliate.

If you have any questions regarding Fundraising Events, contact Kerry Shearer, Senior Development Manager, at or (908) 277-2904 ext. 210.
