Involvement in the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center fundraising events makes a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families.

By giving of your time, action, or resources, you can impact all areas of our mission: improving the patient experience, advancing research, and enriching educational opportunities for learners at all stages.

Plan a Fundraiser

Big or small, fundraising events are a fantastic way to raise money for a cause that inspires you. Consider planning a large-scale event such as a gala, golf outing, or a 5K run, or organize a smaller fundraiser like a bake sale, penny war, or garage sale. Your efforts can inspire and mobilize your community behind individuals at all stages of their cancer journeys -- and advance research toward cures.

Visit the Michigan Medicine Office of Development website to download an event toolkit [pdf], post your event to our calendar, and access other resources.

Join Online Campaigns

Social media campaigns help raise awareness for important causes and bring together supporters from around the globe. Follow the Rogel Cancer Center on Facebook and Twitter to learn about our latest campaigns and show your support.

You can also create your own fundraising web page to participate in Rogel Cancer Center campaigns or generate support for programs that are meaningful to you. Encourage friends, family, co-workers and others to join you to make the biggest impact possible.

Volunteer

Volunteers provide care and comfort, and help us put patients and families first. The Rogel Cancer Center offers a variety of opportunities to get involved, including greeting visitors, walking patients to their appointments, and sharing comfort materials with families in waiting areas.
