Become a Community Partner today!
We are a community-funded nonprofit, thanks to our partners.
Donations from individuals and community partners account for nearly a third of the income that supports our programs. Community partner support helps our foundation expand services to ensure that families in Northern Nevada facing a childhood cancer diagnosis can focus on their child, and worry less about the rising costs of cancer treatments.
We need support from people like you. Lila and Everly hosted a lemonade stand for the last three summers to raise money for children with cancer. Their desire to take care of local kids represents the unwavering support from our community partners who dedicate their time, energy, and talent to help our foundation. Each lemonade stand, office swear jar, golf tournament, and toy drive helps relieve the financial and emotional burden a family faces with a childhood cancer diagnosis.
#KnowTheGold this September
This September, NNCCF will recognize Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and kick-off the annual Know the Gold Campaign. It is a five-month-long community-driven effort to raise funds for local kids. On average, NNCCF assists 120 families each year, and the funds raised during the campaign help support our programs and services throughout the year.
The gold ribbon is the national symbol of childhood cancer. Advocates of childhood cancer wear gold ribbon pins to show their support! We encourage to pick up your free awareness pin by making an appointment with our office to grab a pin, or 30 pins, to wear and share with the community.
Host a fundraiser and engage your community to support local kids
- Host a lemonade stand or bake sale
- Buy-out the dress code at work or school
- Host a 5k fun run or golf tournament
- Sell donation ribbons at your storefront
- Host a coin bucket drive
- Host a virtual game night with family and friends
There are many fun ideas to engage your friends, coworkers, family and community – just reach out if you want to become involved but need help creating your fundraiser. We have seen many creative ideas including “Pie a Manager in the Face” competitions, neighborhood family poker night, custom t-shirt sales, and more.
More ways to support:
- Check if your business can participate in an employee matching program. Every dollar counts any many businesses have a healthy philanthropy budget!
- Host a book drive, toy drive, or donate an item for our toy cabinet from our Amazon Wish List.
- Collect travel-sized hand sanitizers for our families
- Volunteer for one of our events or donate your services in-kind (ex: photography, event promotion, video editing, etc)
