Now more than ever, patients, survivors and families in crisis need our support. Pancreatic cancer doesn’t stop for COVID-19, and neither will we. But in order to do so, we need your help to continue to connect patients with direct lines of support, fund important research and raise awareness on the importance of early detection. We’re all in this together, so we’ve compiled these Fundraising Tips & Tools to help make the process easy for you.


We understand that there are many organizations in need right now, and want to provide you with ways to involve families, friends and coworkers to reach your goal:

  • Set up a raffle to build excitement and it's a win/win for the donors and for Rolfe! Ideas include:
    • 50/50: Half of the proceeds go to Rolfe Foundation, the other to the winner (who may donate it back!)
    • Mystery Box: Fill a box with goodies and winner takes all
    • Restaurant: Ask a local restaurant to donate a gift card

  • What's your loved one's favortie number? Ask that many friends to donate in that amount! (i.e., 18 friends to donate $18 each)

  • Organize a Field Day/Lawn Olympics: Friends and family can pay to enter or create teams and compete in cornhole, balloon toss or other socially distant appropriate outdoor games

  • Employer Match 10 for $20: Ask 10 coworkers to support you with $20 each with a company match

  • Run, jump, or dance your way: Ask loved ones to sponsor you per mile you walk, number of push-ups, or jumping jacks you do and more!


They say everyone has a story, and it is by sharing you story—the reason why you’re DASHing and why you support Rolfe—that let’s others know they’re not alone. Check out our email and social media samples below to help get you started.
