Your Guide to a Successful
NETRF Volunteer-Run Fundraiser Event

We are so grateful to all of our passionate supporters who wish to organize volunteer-run events. These inspiring communities not only raise much-needed funds for NET research, they raise awareness about this uncommon cancer. Thank you for your interest in supporting NETRF and helping NET patients and families everywhere. In 2020, NETRF received 355 gifts from event supporters who raised nearly $100,000 for NET research.

We Rely on You to:

  • Set an Event Fundraising Goal
    • If your Event Goal is at least $10,000.00, NETRF will provide a webpage on our site to raise funds
      • You are responsible for providing all event elements for a webpage hosted on NETRF’s website
        • Event name, date, time, ticket price if applicable, fundraising goal, motivation for event, story and photos
  • Promote your event to your community
  • Connect with local businesses and media outlets
  • Host the event
  • Provide event photos, results and quotes for a potential, post-event summary for NETRF’s monthly newsletter

For all $10,000+ event fundraisers, NETRF will:

  • As appropriate, set-up a webpage in a timely manner, and create a donation-giving form for an easy and direct way to fundraise
  • Brainstorm and offer advice on event planning and fundraising strategies
  • Send a letter of endorsement including our tax-exempt status to help solicit corporate sponsorship
  • Provide IRS compliant tax receipts to donors for gifts made to your event
  • Provide weekly updates on event fundraising progress to the event contact
  • Create a custom thank-you letter for your event donors
  • As appropriate, we will include an event summary article in our newsletter
  • Include event recognition and results in NETRF Annual Report
