Allow participants to sign up to fundraise in honor of your child.

Raise money for childhood cancer research in their honor

At the St. Baldrick’s Foundation we do one thing, and we do it well—fund childhood cancer research. If you’d like to join us and raise money for research in your child’s name

you have many options:

Create a Hero Fund

Interested in setting up a foundation in your child’s honor? A St. Baldrick’s Hero Fund may be a good alternative. You can get your fundraising started right away, without the hassle of attracting a board of directors, creating your own website, developing a grant-making structure, and managing accounting and finances. And you can be assured that the money you raise will fund the best childhood cancer research.

Get Involved with Head-Shaving

St. Baldrick’s head-shaving began as a simple event, and it continues to be the primary way volunteers raise money to help kids with cancer. You can shave your head, plan an event, volunteer at a local event, offer to speak, or simply attend.

Plan a Fundraiser Your Way

We know head-shaving isn’t for everyone, that’s why we’ve made it easy for you to raise money doing whatever it is that interests you. Like to run? Raise money per mile. Like crafting, photography or any cool sport? Turn it into a fundraiser for research.
