Grant Ideas

 

Do you have a great idea for a project related to Cancer/Smoking? Let us know what it is and we could give you up to $500 to make it happen.

 

Here are examples of other ideas we liked.

 

Create and present educational materials.
Create educational materials (i.e. pamphlets, flyers, booklets) about the health issues associated with smoking and/or cancer and what people can do to prevent the disease. Translate your materials into short YouTube videos and/or presentations that can be delivered to local schools, shared on Facebook or presented at community health fairs.
Organize a bone marrow donor registry drive.
Bone marrow transplants are now fairly simple procedures for donors—and you're not asked to donate unless you're considered a close enough genetic match that you could actually save a life. Hold a drive to increase awareness about Leukemia and help people understand why they should join the registry.
Organize a series of events to raise funds and generate awareness.
Organize a series of fundraisers (or participate in existing events) to generate awareness of the health issues associated with smoking and/or cancers. Consider sporting events/tournaments, talent shows/competitions, dance, car washes, bake sales, garage sales, merchandise sales (i.e. T-shirts, etc.).
Create a support program for people with cancer.
Work with your local cancer treatment centers to develop care packages for chemo and hospice patients.
