Kiel Colon Cancer

“SIX” Fundraiser

What is the KCCF SIX Fundraiser?

The Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation is kicking off its first ever “SIX” Fundraiser. The “SIX” fundraiser’s mission is to raise funds: A) to benefit the Texas State University colon cancer research program and B) support the Kiel Colon Cancer’s upcoming efforts to raise awareness for colon cancer and educate young adults around the nation about the rise in colon cancer diagnosis amongst young adults through our Kick & Roll Classic program, as we embark on taking it nationwide very soon. The “SIX” Fundraiser requires those who would like to help us out donate multiples of $6, as the #6 is a very meaningful number in the Kiel family. Our CEO George Kiel’s mother, who passed away from colon cancer in March of 2014, was born on June 6th, Kiel’ birthday is March 6th, his sisters, Dawnielle and Valarie’s birthdays are February 6th and November 6th, respectively, and Kiel’s father’s birthday is June 16th.

Prize for the SIX Fundraiser’s Highest Donor

The SIX Fundraiser begins today, March 8th, 2017 and ends on Kiel’s mom’s birthdate, June 6th, 2017. The person who records the most funds donated under his/her name will get an all-expenses paid trip for two people to our 4th annual Kick & Roll Classic in Austin, Texas on August 5th. If the highest donor resides in Texas, they will get an all-expenses paid trip for two people to our Fall 2017 Kick & Roll Open Gym event in the Los Angeles area.

How to Donate to the SIX Fundraiser

Donate to the SIX Fundraiser in three easy steps:

  1. Donate on your own behalf below. Start with a donation of your own (multiple of $6) to submit and enlist your name for the fundraiser.
  2. Within 24 hours of your donation being accepted, your name will be an option on the drop-down menu for other donors – or yourself – to donate on your behalf. After your initial donation, people donating on your behalf must select your name from the drop-down menu for you to receive credit of the donation.
  3. We will keep record of your donations and keep you updated as soon as you’ve received one.

Ways to Rise Above the Rest in the SIX Fundraiser

Remember, ask and you shall receive.
If you don’t reach out to your friends, family, and colleagues, they won’t have any idea that you are trying to help raise money for colon cancer. We find it most helpful if you ask for a specific dollar amount to help fight colon cancer; it doesn’t matter if it’s $24, $36, or $240 – any amount makes a huge difference. Just make sure it is multiples of $6.

Use your network!
We live in a digital world where all of your friends, family, and co-workers are at the push of a button. Reach out to your friends and family via social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and tell them about the cause you’re raising money for. Be sure to tag our account, @KielColonCancer on all Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, or send them to our website should they have any questions.

Set daily and end goals.
Keep in mind that fundraising takes time. If you set daily goals to reach per day, it helps you achieve your final goal by June 6th. Fluctuate your goals. If you set a rather high goal for yourself one day – in order to reach it – you have to put in more work in asking for the donations.
Give your potential donors a deadline.
In order for you to be eligible for winning the free-trip prize, your donations must be turned in by June 6th at 11:59 PM.

Ask your company to match your end donation.
All donations and proceeds given to the Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation are tax deductible. This means that this donation can be deducted from gross income for the purpose of reducing taxable income. Reach out to your employer and ask if they’d like to match your end donation. This can tremendously double your donations.

Here’s an example of what to post online:

“Starting today, I am participating in Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation’s first ever SIX Fundraiser . A) to benefit the Texas State University colon cancer research program and B) support the Kiel Colon Cancer’s upcoming efforts to raise awareness for colon cancer and educate young adults around the nation about the rise in colon cancer diagnosis amongst young adults through our Kick & Roll Classic program, as they embark on taking the program outside of Austin very soon. I’d like for you to help me raise money before the fundraiser’s deadline – June 6th, 2017! Any amount can make a huge difference in the SIX Fundraiser. (Plus, the donor with the highest donation amount gets an all-expenses paid trip to the Kick & Roll Classic!)

Head over to the “Donations Page” to make a donation on my behalf. I have a goal of raising $ ______ by June 6th.
Can you help me lower colon cancer on the list of the three leading cancer deaths in the U.S.?”
