Not only is a cancer diagnosis scary and stressful, it is also extremely costly. People will want to help so that the patient and their family can just focus on getting better.
The money raised can be used for:
- Hospital bills
- Experimental therapies
- Home care
- Travel expenses
- To supplement daily needs such as:
- House cleaning
- Transportation costs
- Pet car
- Home upkeep
You might also consider complementing your online fundraiser with an in-person event to bring people together, such as:
- An Auction
- A Race sponsored by local businesses
- A Fundraising dinner event
*You can use the Event Details page of your DAG fundraising site to communicate the important information.
With Deposit a Gift you can customize your fundraising site so that it is a true reflection of the situation at hand and helps people understand how they can have the greatest impact.
Streamlining the support process online can be a gift in itself because even though it’s great to hear from people, sometimes fielding everyone’s calls and questions can be stressful. An online donation site with one point of contact means that the patient can still receive and feel the love, but all in one place.
You can setup the site in the format of a fund or use our Gift List tool to break down the different uses of funds so that your supporters can contribute to different areas of need. Once the site is ready to be shared, the key is marketing it to the max to rally support and get people on board during this difficult time.
