Donate: It may sound simple, but donations are one of the few ways that our charity will survive. Even one dollar can help us take one step closer to achieving our mission of spreading awareness, encouraging early detection and supporting research of esophageal cancer in hopes of a cure. If you would like to make a contribution, please visit: www.salgi.org/donate
Volunteer: Join us for our upcoming events! We had tremendous success this past year at our first ever annual ‘Esophageal Cancer Walk.’ This is an annual event and a lot of fun, so please consider lending a hand or two! We also plan to host other events. You may volunteer to assist us before, during or after our events. Our volunteers can also receive college/school credit for any volunteer hours needed. Have an idea for an event? Email us! email@example.com We’d love to hear from you!
Spread the word: Raising awareness for this horrific disease is as important as raising funding is to support research. Be sure to “like” us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, add us to your circles on Google+, follow and re-pin with us on Pinterest and subscribe to our blogs. Invite your friends, family, colleagues, clients and acquaintances to do the same as well! Start letting everyone you know what Salgi does and how they can also get involved! You can start by forwarding someone this post!
Fundraise: Back to our first point, donations are essential to keeping our charity alive and prospering. If you would like to throw your own fundraiser, let us know and we can provide our written consent. We might also be able to guest speak, provide you with pamphlets and help educate others about esophageal cancer, prevention and awareness. Remember, we are a 501c3 nonprofit charity so anything that is donated goes DIRECTLY to our charity and all donations are tax-free!
Need some fun fundraising ides? Plan a girls night out, throw a football party, have a yard sale, invite guests over for a wine and cheese party, throw a Halloween party. If throwing a party or night out, you can ask your guests to “buy a ticket” to your soirée and let them know the funds are going directly to Salgi. If you have a yard sale, include in your advertising and postings that all proceeds will benefit Salgi.
Planning a BIGGER party? (I.e. Wedding, Birthday, Bat Mitzvah, Bar Mitzvah, Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, Sweet Sixteen, Engagement Party, etc…) Make a considerate donation to Salgi in the name of your guests in lieu of favors. Please contact us with questions!
You can also ask companies and businesses to donate to our charity! For instance, you can ask your favorite coffee shop to donate a percentage of their sales from a particular product to Salgi. Remember, all donations are tax-deductable!
