Happy and Healthy New Year!
Thank you for your continued support of David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation (DDBCF). It is because of your generosity that we have so far been able to provide direct financial assistance to 1,004 families battling a cancer diagnosis. In addition to financial support, countless other families have received personal emotional support, wellness services and HOPE.
As we kick off 2018, we are pleased to re-introduce our Planning Giving Program! The DDBCF planning giving program enables individual sponsors or corporate friends to Pay It Forward throughout the year with Event Sponsorships. Our 2018 planned giving initiative will afford us the opportunity to better respond to the increasing avalanche of patient grant requests.
Our DDBCF Executive Director, Danielle Corso created the first successful planned giving campaign in 2015 with the help of the generous team at Equity Prime Mortgage, and our relationship with them remains the Gold Standard for long-term partnerships. The impact that this single program has had on the lives of patients and their families is difficult to accurately measure – literally thousands who have been impacted by this deadly disease are benefitting from the Equity Prime Mortgage planned giving program.
The DDBCF event calendar for 2018 includes highly visible events that provide you or your business with key sponsorship opportunities that are available now. We are particularly excited to announce that DDBCF was selected to be the first Chowder for a Cause Partner Charity for this year’s Chowderfest! Over 15,000 people attended last year, so the opportunity to raise awareness for our Mission of Hope in 2018 will be tremendous!
- Frank V. Panzone Jr. Memorial Cruisin for a Cure
- Frank A. Cosimano Memorial Golf Classic
- Stafford Run for Hope
- LBI Summer Soiree
- Survival of the Mills
How can you get involved?
This year, we are offering you or your business the opportunity to be included as a named sponsor at every event (maximum branding and recognition) through a planned giving commitment that can be structured in monthly, quarterly or as a one-time annual contribution. In addition, DDBCF prominently recognizes our Community Partner Level sponsors on the DDBCF website and on all of our marketing brochures, signs and event materials. The Community Partner Level is reserved for individuals and businesses who pledge $10,000 in donations per year.
Please simply call or email DDBCF Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, David Caldarella (ideally before February 15, 2018) to ensure that we recognize you in all of our DDBCF marketing pieces this year.
Thank you once again for all of your support!
