In addition to our large fundraisers, a lot of our funding comes from the generosity of groups and individuals.
If you or your organization would like to hold a fundraiser, below are several ideas that might get you started.
Corporate Giving Programs/Dress Down Days
Angel On My Shoulder gratefully acknowledges the many corporations that support employees who are involved in charities. Corporate giving programs, contributions from designated Dress Down Days, and special donations to support our programs are warmly received and greatly appreciated.Please let us know if your company has a matching gifts program, or a charitable foundation. Grant/giving guidelines available through your place of business can be forwarded to us.
Penny wars, car washes, raffles, pool and bowling tournaments, brat and hot dog sales are a few ideas for fundraisers through groups, schools, or organizations are wonderful ways to help Angel On My Shoulder reach out to those living with or affected by cancer.
Sponsor A Camper
Sponsoring a camp experience for a child or teen affected by cancer through a loved one (parent, sibling or grandparent) is a wonderful gesture of love and caring. Camp Angel (7-12) Camp Teen Angel (13-15) and Angel Adventures/Angel Adventures Extreme (16-18) provide young people the opportunity to be with others like themselves in an atmosphere of love and support knowing that their pain is understood. Your donations allow is to keep these camps cost-free to our campers. Our goal is to give as many kids as possible a chance to be part of these fun-filled and inspiring weekend retreats designed to meet their unique challenges. If you are able to sponsor a camper, we (and the young people it benefits) would greatly appreciate your support. The approximate costs per camper are: Camp Angel $350; Camp Teen $450; Angel Adventures $650; Angel Adventures Extreme $700; Camp Hozhoni $900 per family. Whatever amount (big or small) will truly “make a positive difference!”
