We are honored to be contacted so often by passionate members of our community wanting to organize an event or promotion benefiting breast cancer awareness and research. The Komen for the Cure® Greater Kansas City Affiliate partners with others because it benefits both parties in terms of public awareness.

• Application – must be submitted to our Affiliate at least 6 months before the date of the proposed event or promotion.
• Minimum Guaranteed Donation – All Affiliate sanctioned events and product promotions must raise a minimum of $1,500.
• Letter of Agreement – If your application is approved, you will need to sign a Letter of Agreement with the Kansas City Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
• Event Insurance – must be obtained 30 days prior to the event.
If after you've read the guidelines, you are interested in entering into an agreement with the Komen Greater Kansas City Affiliate, please fill out the Community Fundraising Partnership Applicationand return to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Kansas City, 1111 Main, Suite 450, Kansas City, MO 64105, Attention: Denise Wiese, or email her.
If you decide that the size of your event does not warrant the effort to follow the guidelines listed above, there are three other ways to support Komen:
Option 1: You may want to consider registering for Passionately Pink for the Cure®. This program allows individuals, business and clubs/groups to fundraise for Komen. The website provides resources for your fundraising activities as well as a customizable web page. Click Here to learn how you can become Passionately Pink!
Option 2: You may want to consider not using the Komen name/logo and instead making a general statement that the funds raised will go to a local breast health organization or breast cancer research and support. We would be honored to receive funds raised and would give public recognition for your donation.
Option 3: Rally for the Cure® has expanded their well-established golf program to other events. You can now plan a Rally for the Cure® program for sporting events like tennis, dinner events such as wine-tasting or group/club activities such as a bridge or book clubs.
