From hosting an event with your school, community group, or business, there are countless ways you can get involved to benefit The Guiding Hand Foundation and deliver hope. Whatever inspires you can help bring financial support to those in active cancer treatment. How about a bake sale, lemonade stand, collection pennies, or even a music concert? Below are just some of the creative ideas to inspire you. Have an exciting, new idea? We would love to hear from you!

Schools & Universities- Be a part of schools & universities making a difference for cancer patients in active treatment. Acting as a fundraising leader to host an event at your school or campus is a great resume builder and showcases leadership talent. Gather up a group of friends or your social organization / club and help us make a difference while having fun. You can organize a "Special Day", hold a car wash, bake sale or donate proceeds from a show or concert. We need your talent and ideas to help reach our goals. Host a school fundraiser

Community- There are many fun and rewarding ways to fundraise in your community. One volunteer hosted a lemonade stand fundraiser after losing her mother to breast cancer as a way to honor her memory. Our young enterprising supporter set up her own PINK lemonade stand and made a huge impact in her neighborhood. If rock and roll is more your speed, put on a benefit concert to help cancer patients pay for basic necessities. From restaurants to gift shops, you can donate a portion of sales to The Guiding Hand Foundation for a "Proceeds Day" and we’ll help you promote it to customers via social media to increase participation for a worthy cause. A walk / run event, yoga in the park, or even a group Zumba® class can attract fitness enthusiasts of all ages to pay a participation fee to benefit The Guiding Hand Foundation. Host an Event

Corporations- Gather up your co-workers and get involved in giving Hope Now. From fund drives to "Jeans Day", we’ve seen all types of successful events. Whether you set up teams and compete against each other to see who can raise the most money, or all work together, it is a great team building effort to gather around an important cause. Be sure to ask your company if they offer a matching program for the funds raised. Get your company involved

SPONSOR A SURVIVOR- Sponsor a Survivor - means committing to providing $3,000 to ensure a family has a 90-day grant to cover non-medical expenses to cover the cost of living expenses during treatment for breast cancer. Sponsor a Survivor

Volunteer Your Time- The Guiding Hand Foundation relies upon a large group of dedicated volunteers to help us accomplish our mission. We use volunteers in a variety of ways, from miscellaneous office assistance with phone calls and correspondence to fundraising, event planning, and support. Whatever talent you can offer, we will make every effort to work within your areas of interest and strengths. Be a Volunteer
