We’re here to help you fundraise in new ways

We here at Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund are amazed by our dedicated community of supporters and volunteers who are committed to Dana-Farber’s mission to conquer cancer.

While in-person events may be limited, your ability to fundraise for the Jimmy Fund—and have fun doing it—doesn’t have to be. The Jimmy Fund team is here to help you take your fundraising online!

Take a look at our tips and techniques linked below to continue supporting our patients and physician-scientists virtually, from wherever you may be. 

  • Create a Facebook Fundraiser: A Facebook Fundraiser is an easy way to ask family and friends on Facebook for donations to support Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund.
