Organize Your Own Event
Creating and hosting your own fundraising event is a terrific way to raise money for Moffitt in the fight against cancer while having fun with friends and family. These community partner events are fundraisers developed by a third-party group and/or individual to benefit Moffitt.
Community partners are fully responsible for organizing and executing their own event. Throughout the planning process, Moffitt’s community partner events staff can provide you with guidance and encouragement.
By coordinating your own event, you will join a community of other dedicated community partners who together raise over $1 million each year to support life-saving research and patient care at Moffitt. Our community partners have held golf tournaments, races, receptions, concerts and more – all to support Moffitt’s mission: to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.
Take a look! Here are some of the inspiring events that have been organized to benefit Moffitt.
Feeling inspired? To get started hosting your own event:
Step 1 - Decide on what kind of fundraiser you want to host. It could be an athletic event, musical experience, social gathering, or more - there are many creative ways to raise money and get your community excited to support Moffitt!
