Event Types

Special Occasions

Turn your next special occasion into a party with a purpose by starting your own CSC fundraising campaign. Whether you are celebrating your birthday, wedding, bar/bat mitzvah or graduation, funds raised through your personalized campaign will help CSC continue to provide high-quality social and emotional support programs for cancer patients and their families, free of charge.

Special Occasion pages are a great way to honor that important day in your life. Here are some of our suggestions for a successful fundraising page:

  • Instead of asking for birthday presents, ask family and friends to donate to your personalized fundraising page! Suggest that they donate your age in dollars to CSC, such as $21 for your 21st birthday.
  • Use your CSC fundraising page as your party invitation and email everyone the link to your page.
  • Choose to support CSC for your bar/bat mitzvah project and ask your family and friends to support you.
  • Honor a special anniversary by asking loved ones to donate to your fundraising page to commemorate your commitment to cancer patients and their families.
  • Instead of or in addition to your wedding registry, ask your guests to make a donation to CSC and collect donations on your personalized fundraising page. Include a link to your fundraising page in your wedding invitations or on your wedding website.
  • Celebrate your special achievement or graduation by supporting CSC’s cancer support efforts with your fundraising page.

Create your own fundraising page, and we’ll make fundraising easy with all the support and tools you’ll need. Start fundraising for CSC today and make your next special event even more meaningful.
