Fundraising Support

Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure® walkers raise over $3,000 each, on average. That might seem like a lot. But they usually reach that goal with 25 donors or less. Once you get started, you’ll be surprised by how generously people will support you. Because you’re doing something big (60 miles! 3 days!) people want to give big.

Once you join the 3-Day for the Cure, we provide you with all the resources you need to make the most of your experience. This includes:

  • A handbook
  • A personal fundraising webpage
  • A fundraising ideas library
  • Fundraising email and tracking tools
  • Printable tools, including posters and business cards
  • Our Facebook fundraising application
  • Fundraising clinics in every 3-Day for the Cure market
  • Many more tools on our website

Fundraising “The 3-Day Way”
Fundraising “The 3-Day Way” is a method, and a mindset, that has worked for thousands of walkers. We teach you how to “ask big” in a way that makes fundraising easier than you ever thought it could be.

  1. Write an email or letter campaign. We provide sample fundraising appeals that will help you craft that perfect message in 10 minutes or less. Emails you send through our website automatically contain a link back to your personal webpage. Many walkers reach their fundraising goals just by sending emails to everyone in their address book.
  2. Plan a fundraising party. A simple night in with drinks and snacks can turn into a fundraising success, with the help of our Inspiration video that you can show to your guests. There won’t be a dry eye in the house.
  3. Get creative. Yard sales, car washes, bake sales - we’ve seen it all! Team “Tutus for Tatas” brought in $20,000 last year with a golf tournament and $25,000 with a fashion show and luncheon.
  4. Team up. There is strength in numbers, especially when it comes to fundraising. Form or a join a team and you’ll have plenty of support to organize fundraising events or ask for corporate donations.
  5. Your personal fundraising webpage will help you tell your story. Customize it with a photo and your story to increase the impact. With a few clicks, your donors can give online directly to your fundraising account.
  6. Seek support. The 3-Day community opens its arms to new walkers. Our online message boards and fundraising ideas library provide a venue to share successes and get new ideas.
