Huntsman Cancer Foundation Events

Plan an Event

Events allow the public to experience the mission of Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) firsthand. By recruiting new donors, celebrating major gifts, and honoring a challenge to meet goals through radio-a-thons, athletic competitions, bake sales, art exhibits, etc. Huntsman Cancer Foundation (HCF) events reiterate that everyone can do something!

BEFORE attempting to design and execute an event idea on your own, please read the general guidelines below and contact Sally Montgomery.

  • HCF must approve all uses of logo and name in advance of any printing.
  • All donors should make checks payable to Huntsman Cancer Foundation.
  • HCF will provide counsel, letterhead, and use of logo/name only after event consultation and approval.
  • HCF cannot provide public relations support, staff support, “seed money” or financial support, or access to any mailing lists.
