- About Us
Start a fundraiser in your community. You can choose the activity, and we’ll give you the resources to make your fundraiser a success! You can help to advance our mission and fuel the breakthroughs we need to find a cure.
Your Event’s Connection to NBTS: When planning your event, the National Brain Tumor Society should be listed as the beneficiary to your event with the language “to benefit” or “to support” the National Brain Tumor Society.
Expenses Related to the Event: All expenses incurred will be the individual’s responsibility. The National Brain Tumor Society cannot open bank accounts to support events.
Logo and Brand Usage: While we encourage you to use the National Brain Tumor Society logo in connection with your fundraising effort, we ask that you don’t stretch or distort the organization’s logo. Please see the Community Fundraising Terms and Conditions for more information.
Submitting Donations or Event Proceeds: Direct donors to your personal NBTS online fundraising or event page. This is the fastest and easiest way for donations to be connected with your fundraising efforts. Only those individuals who make a donation directly to your NBTS donation page or write a check to the National Brain Tumor Society will be eligible for a tax receipt for their donation.
Option 1: Fundraiser Collect Checks
Community organizers can collect donors’ checks made payable to “National Brain Tumor Society” and send them directly to NBTS, Attn: Community Events. These donations will be processed and acknowledged by the National Brain Tumor Society under the organization’s tax identification number. Please include a note or Donation Form with the checks designating which event or fundraising effort the donations are for.
Option 2: Donors Mail Check Directly
Event donors can mail checks directly to the National Brain Tumor Society, Attn: Community Events. Donors must record the event name on the check memo line.
Option 3: Community Organizers Receive Cash or Checks Made Out to Them Personally
If a community organizer receives cash or a check made out to them personally, the individual can deposit the checks or cash, and then send a check made out to the National Brain Tumor Society for the deposited amount or make an online donation to his/her event page for the deposited amount. If the community organizer submits donations this way, only the community organizer will receive acknowledgment from the National Brain Tumor Society. The community organizer is responsible for following IRS guidelines for tax-deductible donations.
All checks being mailed should be addressed to:
Attn: Community Events, National Brain Tumor Society, 55 Chapel Street, Suite 006, Newton, MA, 02458
Note: Only the individuals who make a donation directly to your NBTS donation page online or write a check made out to the National Brain Tumor Society will be eligible for a tax receipt for their donation. Donations written to the community organizer or another entity, such as your event name, will not be eligible for a tax receipt from the National Brain Tumor Society.
Hosting Joggin’ 4 the Noggin 5k Run/Walk has been a humbling experience. It allows our family to remember our loved ones and also offers hope to those recently or yet to be diagnosed.Steph J.
