Become A Foundation Partner

You can become a Foundation Partner by planning a fundraising event for the Foundation for Women’s Cancer. Runs, walks, dinners and dances—these are just some of the ways our dedicated supporters throughout the country are raising awareness and helping support the educational and research mission of the Foundation. Our Partners are men, women, and children of all ages with one thing in common: they have all been affected by a gynecologic cancer, and they want to do something about it. Download our fundraising guidelines.

Please note: We cannot provide volunteers with mailing lists of donors, sponsors or vendors, but we can send out mailings to Foundation constituents in your area on your behalf.  In addition, we will gladly supply you with material explaining our mission, goals and accomplishments along with informational brochures.  Please review our policies and procedures for 3rd party fundraising event.

Interested in planning an event? Here are some tips to help you get started!

  • Contact Sharon Krinsky, Director of Philanthropy, at 312-580-1165 or skrinsky@foundationforwomenscancer.org.
  • If you would like to use our name and/or logo on your event materials or promotion, we ask that you sign a letter of agreement and send us all materials using our name and logo for approval before distribution.
  • Only checks made out to the Foundation for Women’s Cancer are eligible to receive a tax-deduction. The Foundation cannot participate in the sale of tickets or be responsible for providing any sponsors, celebrities or speakers for the event. Mail your check(s) along with the donation form to the Foundation’s office (230 W. Monroe St., Suite 2528, Chicago, IL  60606-4902).

Thank you for your support and for choosing the Foundation for Women’s Cancer as the beneficiary of your event – we are truly grateful.
