As the foundation has grown, we’ve connected with individuals and families who share our passion for LIVING with cancer, but who lack the resources to start or support their own foundation. Enter KWF FUNds!

What is a FUNd?

Almost like starting your own foundation, a FUNd allows you to raise money to support our mission through a custom fundraising page on KWF’s website. We have already done the legal work, and provide support in accounting, marketing, fundraising ideas and more! There are no limits to when or how much money you raise. Your campaign can also set parameters to match your FUNd with the perfect recipient! Even thank you notes for all donors to your FUNd- we’ve got you covered.

Looking to participate or sponsor Birdies Beer & a Band, Beckypalooza or other FUNds event? Our registration software is experiencing technical difficulties, so please email: to secure your spot!

Which FUNd is right for me?

Living FUNd

A LIVING FUNd celebrates those LIVING with cancer and can be created by anyone passionate about sharing FUN with our recipients.

Memorial FUNd

A Memorial FUNd honors the legacies of those LIVING ON through our mission, whether diagnosed with cancer or not.


There’s no specific amount you have to commit to raise, and there’s no specific way you have to raise it. FUNds are fitted to your interest and desires.


We’ll provide you with a cusomizable fundraising page on KWF’s website! You can add photos, stories, and details that you need to communicate. There’s also a custom text-to-donate code to make fundraising super simple.


We’ll send thank you letters directly to your donors, and send reports directly to you.


Gifts of FUN will be given in your FUNd’s name, and you can be as involved in the process as you’d like. Be a part of those gift deliveries, designate a gift type — it’s up to you!
