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 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!
