Personalized Fundraising Pages

Help us in our quest to make cancer a disease of the past

Personalized fundraising pages make it easy for you to honor or memorialize a loved one or celebrate a special occasion, while demonstrating your commitment to the fight against cancer via peer-to-peer fundraising. Create your own donation page, tell your story, and invite friends and family to show their support.

How To Get Started

  1. Submit the personalized fundraising page online request form.
  2. Draft a short story to honor or memorialize your tributee or celebrate your special occasion (1 to 4 paragraphs).
  3. Decide on 1 to 3 images to submit for possible use with your story.
  4. Decide on a fundraising goal. Minimum goal needed to create a page is $1,000.
  5. Decide on a short URL to use in publicizing your page (optional). Short URL’s begin with "www.uscnorris.com/" and end with the name of the tributee or special occasion. (Ex. www.uscnorris.com/JoeSmith or www.uscnorris.com/SmithJonesWedding)
  6. Submit your story, image(s) and short URL via the online request form.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Where do funds raised from these pages go?
    The USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center is a part of the University of Southern California, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Volunteer fundraisers can designate a specific doctor’s research fund, department or program that the funds should benefit or they can support highest priority cancer research at USC Norris.
  2. Will I be held responsible for the minimum fundraising goal?
    No, you will not be held responsible for the minimum fundraising goal. We do, however, ask you to consider pledging the remainder needed to reach a minimum of $1,000 in donations. Although this goal is requested to help ensure that we make the best use of limited staff resources, any amount raised is greatly appreciated.
  3. What do I do if I receive donations by check?
    If checks are collected in conjunction with online fundraising, they should be made payable to USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center with the tributee’s name noted on the memo line as the "honoree."
