The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing
Independent Fundraising Guidelines
|Molly Bouchard, Miss Maine|
at the 2012 Dempsey Challenge
In order to protect the integrity of our organization (The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing at Central Maine Medical Center) and event (The Dempsey Challenge), we require all Independent Fundraisers and Independent Fundraising Events (IFEs) abide by the below policies and procedures. Due to the hands-off nature of these fundraisers, the Dempsey Center and The Dempsey Challenge take no responsibility for the activities conducted by an Independent Fundraiser benefiting the Dempsey Center or The Dempsey Challenge. Thank you for your understanding!
APPLICATIONThose wishing to conduct an IFE to benefit the Dempsey Center or Dempsey Challenge should fill out and submit the Independent Fundraising Event application located at the end of this document or on the Fundraising tab of the Dempsey Challenge website: www.dempseychallenge.org. Event staff will review your application and will contact you if there are any issues with your planned IFE. Applications should be submitted at least two (2) weeks prior to the IFE start date. By submitting an application, you have acknowledged that you have read and understand in entirety these Independent Fundraising Event procedures.
While we understand you may not know how much money your IFE will raise, we include a proposed budget in our application to help you plan for expenses pertaining to venue fees, promotion, materials, etc. We hope this will help you accurately plan and manage expectations for a successful event!
