The most impactful way a corporation can support Gilda’s Club is to underwrite an element of our program through a corporate foundation grant or direct giving. Because our program is provided free of charge to everyone who participates at Gilda’s Club, corporate underwriters and grants are an integral part of our ability to keep our program free.
Opportunities for support include: underwriting our children’s program, Noogie Nights; teen program, Teens Connect; Family Fun Nights; Club Sparkle; or sponsoring our Support Groups, Educational Lectures, or Workshops.
Gilda’s Club hosts several prominent fundraisers throughout the year. Support is needed through sponsorships, table purchases, tickets, journal ads, and auction items.
Our signature events:
Annual Benefit Gala
Celebrating Women Benefit Luncheon
Gildafest, our comedy event
The Gildie Awards, our Associate Board’s annual fundraiser
