Create Your Own Fundraising Page

The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) works with Firstgiving to organize fundraising events online.  Firstgiving is a secure, online service that has processed more than $400,000 in donations already for the MRF.  With Firstgiving’s resources and tools, you can easily and quickly create your own personal fundraising page that allows you to:

  • Set a fundraising goal and track your progress toward achieving that goal
  • Add photographs and captions to personalize your page
  • Write your own personal appeal message, letting people know why you are raising money
  • Write a personal thank you note which is automatically sent to the donor after a contribution is received

In addition, everyone who donates on your page can leave words of encouragement.

To get started, visit http://www.firstgiving.com/melanoma and click on GET STARTED.  Once you set up your fundraising page, email everyone you know - family, friends, neighbors, business associates, etc. - and ask them to go to your page and make a donation.

Oh, and let us know, too!  We would love to hear about your event and can help you design your page.

Thank you!
