Generous individuals who organize fundraisers are crucial to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF) in our mission of Helping Women Now®. Individual fundraising drives a significant portion of our funding each year. We are grateful for each and every fundraiser and have developed the following guidelines to help provide clarity and direction for those individuals exploring a relationship with NBCF.
As a fundraiser for NBCF you are entering a relationship with NBCF and are agreeing to abide by the following terms and conditions.
NBCF fundraisers manage their own campaign utilizing NBCF’s co-branded online fundraising platform.
Fundraisers do NOT include a license to use NBCF’s logo nor any other NBCF registered trademarks. We welcome you to develop your own marketing materials so long as they do not include our logo or trademarks and fall within our guidelines below. In order to support our fundraisers, we equip you with pre-approved NBCF-created marketing collateral available to you to use to promote your fundraiser’s support of NBCF to your network. The use of NBCF-approved marketing collateral shall not in any manner be construed as an endorsement by NBCF and shall only be allowed for the limited purpose of informing the public that your fundraising efforts are in support of NBCF.
Funds may be raised through a variety of different ways: bake sales, ticket sales, donations, etc. While contributed funds may be raised in part by selling specific products, NBCF fundraisers are not permitted (per IRS guidelines) to market this to consumers. A simple “statement of support” and an individualized NBCF co-branded fundraising page must be sufficient for a fundraising campaign. The following statements of support are approved for use by NBCF fundraisers:
a. “Proud supporter of National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.®”
b. “Proud partner of National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.®”
c. “Helping Women Now® with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.®”
d. “Providing help and hope with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.®”
e. “Delivering hope with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.®”
f. “Ensuring no one faces breast cancer alone with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.®”
NBCF will not accept fundraisers that sexualize breast cancer through words, images, campaign materials, or product. Additionally, no tobacco nor products that make medical claims will be accepted.
