About

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising activity. It is an overnight, team event where each community comes together for one day and one night to honor cancer survivors and their caregivers, to remember those we have lost, and to fight back against a disease that takes too much from too many. Teams of approximately 8-15 people commit to raising $100 each and take turns walking or running relay-style for 24 hours. We are currently seeking volunteer to help with the planning and implementation of our 2014 event in Menlo Park.

Relay For Life of Menlo Park needs Volunteers to Help with Fundraising. Responsibilities include:

  • · Retain and recruit committee volunteers to help with fundraising.
  • · Collaborate with Chair to plan and set goals for event, committee, team, and team member fundraising.
  • · Be an expert on pre-event, day-of-event, post-event, online, and offline fundraising materials/resources.
  • · Host educational and inspiring fundraising workshops to ensure that all participants understand best practices for fundraising (and know what fundraising practices to avoid).
  • · Leverage kick-offs, team meetings/rallies, bank nights, event days, and wrap-ups as fundraising education opportunities.
  • · Collaborate with Team Recognition Chair, Online Chair, and Registration & Accounting Chair to ensure all teams and team members are properly credited and recognized for their fundraising efforts.
  • · Champion the Team Fundraising Club, Individual Fundraising Club, Grand Club, and All Star programs.
  • · Collaborate with Luminaria Chair to lead pre-event and day-of-event luminaria fundraising efforts.
  • · Lead event-level fundraisers (e.g. auctions, raffles [where legal], committee fundraisers, etc.).
  • · Lead implementation of feeder events at the event and/or coach teams to do feeder events (e.g. Bark For Life, small-scale corporate events, small-scale collegiate events, small-scale high-school events, etc.).
  • · Ensure that all other committee volunteers are considering fundraising opportunities in their plans.
  • Ensure that all fundraising volunteers/contacts know how much they are appreciated.
