Have Fun With Team Fundraising

As a Relay For Life Team Captain, your three main focuses are: Set Goals, Get Donations, and Encourage and Support your team with TEAM FUNDRAISING. This is where your full team puts together an activity or event to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

There are any number of other team fundraising ideas – but we’ve found that those fundraising activities that focus on things people spend money on anyway are most successful. For example – food sales, movie nights, collecting used prom dresses and reselling them… The sky’s the limit.

Here are a few other suggestions for team fundraising activities:
  • Car Window Washes – Teams can wash car windows at fast food restaurant drive through windows.
  • Dime-A-Dance (at event) – Provide music at your campsite. Have other people pay to dance with your team members.
  • Envelopes at Restaurant Tables – Teams generate donations by placing a Relay For Life envelope at every table, stating “Please Support Our Relay For Life Team and the American Cancer Society.” Waitresses check envelopes after each seating.
  • Vacation Day – If you are on a team with your co-workers, ask your boss if they can offer a bonus day off for the team member that raises the most money.

  • Remember to check out the Team Captain Toolkit for additional resources. Good luck and thank you to all of the Relay Team Captains and participants for supporting the American Cancer Society's mission!
