another great idea from ACS

Got a great idea for raising funds for the American Cancer Society but not interested in participating in the Relay For Life at this time? How about creating a Team ACS event? Team ACS is a way of creating an online fundraising site of your own for the American Cancer Society using some event that is happening in your life. I'll let them explain it...

Running a marathon? Honoring a loved one lost to cancer? Hosting a bake sale? With Team ACS you can memorialize the milestones in your life by turning them into a lifesaving effort.


Here are some of the Team ACS Event Criteria if you are interested in creating your own:

  • Team ACS should not be used to raise funds for events that have a charity exclusively designated as a beneficiary unless event producers have granted permission.


  • Events affiliated with or sponsored by tobacco-related products or companies may not be part of Team ACS.


  • Participants must understand that the events are not produced by or the responsibility of the American Cancer Society and must not state or imply that the Society sponsors the event.


  • Team ACS participants understand that all proceeds (on and offline) must benefit the American Cancer Society (participants and event organizers may not take fees, commissions, or salary). Any checks must represent an outright donation and cannot include any exchange of product. Checks should be made payable to the American Cancer Society, Attn: Team ACS.


  • Team ACS participants understand that all proceeds (on and offline) must benefit the American Cancer Society (participants and event organizers may not take fees, commissions, or salary). Any checks must represent an outright donation and cannot include any exchange of product. Checks should be made payable to the American Cancer Society, Attn: Team ACS.


Just head over to the Team ACS website for more information. It looks like a great idea! (or come along to my committee meeting Thursday night and sign up for our Relay. We're going to have a great time in 2007!)
