Third Party Fundraising Events
Each year, we help locals who need us the most with over 16,000 lifesaving breast cancer services (from screening and treatment, to pain relief, wigs and mastectomy bras). Donations and awareness make this possible and allow us to support women who have no other options.
What is a Third Party Event?
Third party events are larger fundraising events that involve more planning and time. They are usually organized by third party organizations, such as trade groups, companies, restaurants, retailers, hotels, etc.
Events take many forms, and third party fundraisers organize the structure and planning.
Please review the guidelines below. They will guide you through the process of becoming an official Susan G. Komen San Antonio Third Party Event.
If you would like to move forward, please submit an application.
Once the application is received, please allow 5-10 working days for review and approval of the application.
1. Complete an application.
a. Please keep the event family-friendly in nature. The fundraising individuals or organization should be aligned with our mission and values.
2. Once the event or promotion is approved, a Third Party Agreement will need to be signed.
3. Ensure sponsors, attendees and participants make their payments to you as the entity conducting the event or sale. We are unable to accept participants’ direct payments.
4. Please let us know of any potential sponsors or underwriters for your event or promotion before you secure them to avoid conflicts with relationships we already have.
5. If the event consists of a sporting component, ALL participants must sign a waiver form (we can provide a sample).
6. Submit payment by check within 30-60 after the event.
Guidelines (to protect you and us).
- Please provide proof of insurance for the event (If applicable). Most of the time, your venue or organization can easily add us as “Additionally Insured” for the event. This is required for your protection and ours.
- If insurance is required for your event or promotion, at the minimum, please present proof of comprehensive general liability insurance which covers liability for bodily injury, property damage or death arising out of the third party event or sale.
- Please name the following as “Additional Insured” on your policy for the event or promotion:
1. Susan G. Komen, 5005 LBJ Freeway, Suite 250, Dallas, Texas 75244 AND
2. Susan G. Komen San Antonio, P.O. Box 6678, San Antonio, Texas 78209
- All Third Party Agreement applications must clearly state a specific percentage of net revenue or a specific dollar amount that they will contribute to Komen San Antonio. For example, $10 of each ticket sold or 10 percent of the sales price of this product, etc.
- If a sporting event, waiver forms must be signed by ALL event participants and kept on file by the Third Party Fundraiser.
