Fundraise Your Way

Did you know you can work to conquer and cure brain tumors through employer matching gifts or by setting up your own fundraising event? Explore the many ways you can support NBTS at the end of the year.

Create Your Own Event

Whether you are celebrating a survivor, paying tribute to a family member or friend with a brain tumor, or you just want to get everyone together for a fun time over the holidays, you can Fundraise Your Way and have a significant impact in supporting our research, advocacy, and awareness efforts. You choose the activity, and we’ll give you the resources to make your fundraiser a success.

Start a Facebook or Instagram Fundraiser

Please note that Meta (Facebook/Instagram) now charges NBTS a small fee for each donation; however, donors are given the option to cover this fee so every dollar goes directly to the fight to conquer and cure brain tumors.

Invite your friends and family to support NBTS’s campaign to raise funds for research and advocacy initiatives directly through Facebook.

Create a fundraiser to raise awareness and funds by the end of 2023 from an Instagram post. The fundraiser will be visible in the post and you can direct your friends to visit a link to the fundraiser in your bio.

Instagram users can attach donation buttons to their Reels, allowing you to ask followers to donate in support of #BreakthroughsAhead — and setting it up is easy!

You can also start a fundraiser for the National Brain Tumor Society on Instagram Live! Meta now charges NBTS a small fee for each donation, but donors are given the option to cover this fee so NBTS will receive 100% of the money you raise in support of breakthroughs ahead. Viewers will see an option to donate at the bottom of their screen for your entire live video. They’ll also be able to see that you selected NBTS, and how much money you’ve raised so far.

Shop Our Store

This holiday season, raise awareness for the brain tumor community with National Brain Tumor Society merchandise. Place your order today to support our mission to conquer and cure brain tumors — once and for all — and show patients and caregivers that they are not alone.

Other Ways to Give

Does your employer match your charitable contributions? You can make an even bigger impact by partnering with your employer to increase your gift. Check with your Human Resources Department to see whether your company participates, or you can use the Matching Gift tool on our donation form.

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support NBTS.

A contribution of stock or securities is an excellent way to support National Brain Tumor Society’s mission and receive significant tax benefits. If you wish to contribute in this way, please notify us in advance about your donation by calling our Development Office at 617-863-7989, so we may properly recognize your donation.

Anyone 70 ½ or older can make a tax-free gift to NBTS from their IRA. Contact or 617-237-1731 for more information.

Supporting NBTS through a planned gift today not only demonstrates your commitment to our shared mission but also creates an enduring legacy in service of a world without brain tumors.
