Your Hero Fund is
1An opportunity to honor a child or loved one
A Hero Fund offers a meaningful way to honor a child or loved one and help in the fight to conquer childhood cancers. Start by naming your Fund and creating a special webpage where you can share personal stories and reports on the impact you're creating.
2Your opportunity to bring your passion to others
Multiple events or activities - head-shaving and more - can count toward your Hero Fund fundraising total. It can be as simple as an ongoing way for friends and family to donate to honor a loved one, or as dynamic as a year-round schedule of fundraising activities with an ambitious goal.
3An efficient alternative to starting your own foundation
Have you thought of starting your own foundation? A Hero Fund can be an efficient alternative. Joining forces with St. Baldrick's allows you to focus on results for kids with cancer, without the drain of legal, financial and technical issues. We provide all the support you need, like a website, gift processing, PR and grant support - so you can focus on the fundraising.
