Fundraising Programs

The two main fundraising programs are to seek corporate sponsors and individual donors.

I. Sponsors: We will target corporate sponsors who would like to support the Matthews Foundation.

II. Donors: We will seek donors through four main sources:

  1. Event driven fundraising
  2. Individual donors
  3. Product Sales
  4. Solicit grants from other Public Charities

1. Event driven fundraising:
  • Annual Summer Crush event: The Summer Crush event exclusively at Looney's Pub North will be one of the main fundraising platforms including a ticket for admission along with silent auction and raffle tickets
  • Sponsor nights: proceeds from certain local restaurants will benefit the foundation
  • Bull/Oyster Roast: proceeds from the event will benefit the foundation
2. Individual Donors: We will seek donations from the general public and will maintain a secure database of all past donors. We may solicit for new donations by mail or by email.

3. Shopping/Other:
  • Donations through United Way can be directed to the Matthews Foundation.
  • Shopping through Goodshop - any item your purchase online, proceeds benefit TMF
4. Solicit grants from other public charities: We will identify public charities and submit applications through their grant making process to further The Matthews Foundation’s mission to help families with children who are suffering from ALL Leukemia.
