Fundraising Guidelines & Application

Thank you for your interest in raising funds to benefit The ChadTough Foundation (The CTF).

The CTF is dedicated to raising awareness and research dollars for pediatric brain cancer, the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children, with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a particularly deadly form from which there are ZERO long-term survivors.

If you are thinking about doing a fundraiser and aren’t sure where to start or what to do, email Brandy.  The CTF can provide ideas and toolkits to help you get started with  a variety fundraisers, some of which you can do from your home.

This document outlines The CTF Fundraising Policies and contains a Third-Party Fundraising Application. While we aren’t huge fans of such formality, we do need to make sure we protect The ChadTough Foundation and appreciate your support in doing so.  After reading and reviewing the fundraising policies, you will need to complete the Third-Party Fundraising Application which can be found

For any questions or for help with the enclosed form, please email Brandy.

Applications must be completed and submitted no less than four weeks prior to the proposed fundraising event.  Upon approval of your fundraising event, the fundraising policies specified in this document become a part of your agreement with The CTF and you will be responsible for complying with them.  Generally, The CTF is able to offer feedback and approval within 5 business days of receiving your application. However, please allow up to 2 weeks for  a response.

Although the Foundation actively encourages third-party fundraising events, it must approve all events in advance.  The Foundation reserves the right to decline to approve any event that it deems to be inconsistent with its mission, vision, or values.

Please do not begin to use The CTF name or logo in any fundraising efforts until you have received approval of your fundraising initiative.
