5 Holiday Fundraising Ideas to Support Breast Cancer Research

Raise money for lifesaving research this holiday season and throughout the new year.

The most festive time of the year has finally arrived, and we hope you’re getting into the holiday spirit. Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s are rife with opportunities to support BCRF’s dedicated researchers in a variety of fun and meaningful ways.

This holiday season, we’re grateful to the countless individuals and groups from around the world who are transforming their passions into creative ways to fund the groundbreaking research that is improving lives of people impacted by breast cancer.

Whether you’d like to plan a holiday fundraiser on your own, with friends and family, or with your community at large, there are ample ways to organize a successful event. But if you’re feeling stumped, here are some ideas to inspire you:

Holiday celebrations. Invite your friends and family members to contribute to the cause when you throw a Hanukkah, Christmas, or New Year’s Eve party.

Fitness challenges. If you resolved to improve your health in the new year, consider signing up for a 5K in your area, joining an exercise class, or cycling or swimming to help fund breast cancer research.

Community events. Bond with your co-workers or fellow students by holding a holiday bake sale, board game tournament, or used book sale.

Personal milestones. Ask for donations for your birthday, wedding, or anniversary.

Get inspired. There’s a way to turn just about any activity into an opportunity to raise funds.
