THE CHOICES ARE ENDLESS.

Here are some ideas of successful fundraisers:

Please note, a minimum donation amount is required in return for use of the Komen Houston Affiliate name and logo.

If you decide that your event or promotion may not meet the fundraising requirements, please consider making a general statement that the funds raised will go to a local breast health organization or breast cancer research and support. You may use a general pink ribbon. We would be happy and grateful to receive funds raised in this manner and will give public recognition for your donation.

We are grateful for the opportunities to work with individuals and community organizations who wish to host a fundraiser to help us fulfill our promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
