We believe firmly in our mission to save women’s lives by providing quality breast care, no matter their circumstance. By joining our efforts in fundraising, you stand by our mission to help these women and extend a helping hand within your community.

The Rose is grateful for and dependent upon the incredible support from the community with Independent Fundraising Projects.

Each year members of our community commit their time and energy to host fundraisers and events benefiting The Rose. We are so appreciative of these individuals, businesses, clubs, and churches. If you would like to join these leaders in our community to support our efforts on behalf of the uninsured, please review our guidelines and application.

Fundraising is any promotion, event or sale organized by companies, organizations or individuals to benefit The Rose. In order to ensure that our supporters can feel secure about supporting these efforts, we have established a set of guidelines.

Toolkit & Event Resources

Each year more than 300 schools, organizations, and businesses support The Rose by partnering as a third party fundraiser. The generous donations we receive each year from community leaders, like you, help ensure that The Rose can continue to provide quality breast health care regardless of a patient’s financial circumstance. Third-party fundraising is fundraising brought upon a grander scale. These events are generally organized by an organization, such as businesses, school groups, restaurants, retailers, etc. These events come in many different styles and sizes and can be a lot of fun for businesses to get involved within their community.

We look forward to working with each of you on one common goal to save lives.
