Financial Resources —Did you know that there are many financial resources that can help people living with breast cancer? Find out more
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 Northeastern New York Affiliate of Komen for the Cure® partners with others because it benefits both parties in terms of public awareness.
We want to make this process as simple as possible. In order for us to give each event and/or promotion request its due attention, we ask that you first read through the Guidelines available to assist you in planning your event or promotion. If after you've read the guidelines, you are interested in entering into an agreement with the Komen Northeastern New York Affiliate, please fill out the Application by mail and return it to Lynette Stark, Northeastern New York Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, PO Box 13535, Albany, NY 12212 or till out the Application online. If accepted, you will have to enter into a written Agreement Form with us.
If you decide that the size of your event does not warrant the effort to follow these guidelines, there are three other ways to support Komen:
Option 1: You may want to consider not using the Komen name/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.
Option 2: 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 sporting events like tennis, dinner events such as wine-tasting or group/club activities such as a bridge or book clubs.
