Fundraise for the Cause

The funds raised through LCI’s events like our LUNGe Forwards and Evening of Hope provide the necessary funding to deliver and expand our mission. There are many ways you can raise funds to support Lung Cancer Initiative’s programs and make a difference in lives affected by lung cancer!

Do-It-Yourself! Start Your Own DIY Fundraiser

You can make an immediate impact on Lung Cancer Initiative’s ability to fund programs by starting a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) fundraiser. A DIY fundraiser can be as simple as starting your own Facebook fundraiser, starting a fundraising team for one of our LUNGe Forward events, or asking others to donate in honor or memory of a loved one.

DIY Fundraising Ideas

  • Start a Yogathon
  • Have a Bowling Night
  • Support a LUNGe Forward Event
  • Coordinate a Trivia Night
  • Host Cocktail Parties
  • Organize a Bake Sale
  • Set-up a Car Wash
  • Open a Lemonade Stand

Whatever your interest or passion is, or the interest of the person you’re honoring, you can turn it into an event! Contact our Director of Special Events, Sandy Oehler, to start a fundraiser or learn about how you can support an existing event.
