Fundraise for Mesothelioma

Host a 'Fundraise for Meso' Event

Have you ever wondered how you might do more to support the Meso Foundation? Are you passionate about finding a cure for mesothelioma? Do you have a circle of friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors that would enjoy coming together for a fun charitable event? Then planning a Fundraise For Meso fundraiser is for you!

Throughout the year, dozens of events are hosted to benefit the Meso Foundation. We’ve seen walks, runs, kayaking, poker tournaments, corn hole tournaments, birthday gifts, happy hours and more. We can help coach you through every step of planning from concept to execution, and provide access to the tools and resources you’ll need to plan a successful event (including a cool custom logo like you see below). Planning your own Fundraise for Meso event also gives you the opportunity to join our growing community of fundraisers who are raising awareness and funds all while having fun!

  1. Spark your event planning creativity by reading our Event Planning Toolkit. Then browse our Frequently Asked Questions.

More About Our New Fundraising Pages Powered by Crowdrise

What is Crowdrise? No matter what type of fundraiser you decide to hold, Crowdrise (the fundraising tool used by the Meso Foundation) enables you to create a personal event page to process registrations, track donations, update content and ask friends and family to support your cause.

How does this help the Meso Foundation? The Crowdrise tool is an easy and fun way to raise money in support of the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation. You can help those affected by mesothelioma by fundraising or making a donation to the Meso Foundation. Your gift enables the Meso Foundation to fund research towards a cure, provide patient and family support services, and so much more. To learn more about the Meso Foundation, click here.

How to get started:
1. Go to https://www.crowdrise.com/mesofoundation and select “Fundraise for this Charity.”
2. Follow the steps provided on Crowdrise to create your own fundraising page in support of the Meso Foundation.
3. Sign up for an account with Crowdrise or log-in to an existing account. You can also sign up through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google+.
4. Confirm that you wish to join the team supporting the Meso Foundation and after this you will have your own fundraising page.
5. Personalize your page by changing the text and uploading photos or videos on your personal fundraising page by clicking the “Edit Fundraiser” tab or use the content that is pre-populated.

It’s easy to fundraise.

Now that your personal fundraising page is set up, you are ready to ask friends and family for donations.

Share your fundraiser with all your friends by selecting the ASK FOR DONATIONS button under the MANAGE CAMPAIGN tab and then share your page via email, Facebook, the Facebook Send Messages Service, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Once the donations are processed, your donors will receive a confirmation page and a tax-receipt acknowledging their gift from Network for Good, which processes donations made on the Crowdrise tool. Donations made through the Meso Foundation Crowdrise page are fully tax deductible (whereas checks made out to you or your event are not).

If you would like to host an event, but would not like to use the Crowdrise tool to create a fundraising page, please contact Meso Foundation Development Assistant, Erica Ruble at (703) 879-3826.
