College Fundraising Opportunities

Schools Against Cancer provides college students with the opportunity to take on responsibility and gain leadership skills, while meeting needed community service hours for graduation or clubs. Plus, when students fundraise for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, they fuel cancer research and support patients right here in Western New York.

As a cancer patient, fundraising events make you realize that you're not going through this alone. Besides the support of family and friends, the community out there always steps up.

Here are some ideas to get you started

eSports

Competitive gaming is a fun and easy way to fundraise for a great cause. Plan a FIFA competition, Call of Duty marathon, virtual NBA tournament or any other virtual game. Participants can donate to participate and use the Good Move app to rack up points for time played. 

Hosting a virtual fundraising event can be an effective way to get yourself in front of a wide audience without the hassle of an in-person event. Choose a topic — be it cooking, fitness or improv comedy —and start livestreaming. Manage your fundraising efforts in the Good Move app for a seamless way to give back.
