​Fundraising Events

HOST YOUR OWN CANCER-FIGHTING FUNDRAISER

Host or organize your own fundraising event to increase awareness about ovarian cancer and raise money to support the Rivkin Center mission. Visit our partner website for examples of events you can host or contact amanda.schulte@rivkin.org for more ideas!

SPONSOR A CHARITABLE EVENT

The annual SummeRun & Walk for Ovarian Cancer and the Rivkin Center Family & Friends Auction are incredibly important fundraising events — and a great way to help out. Corporate sponsorship provides vital revenue to make these events a success and shows the community your company’s commitment to ending ovarian cancer.

ATTEND OR VOLUNTEER AT AN EVENT

Each of our signature fundraising events are an annual tradition in the Seattle area. The success of these events depends strongly on the attendance and participation of the community, as well as on volunteer support. To volunteer, email info@rivkin.org to learn more.

“The Rivkin Center plays an important role in fueling ovarian cancer research and has invested over 13 million dollars in support of original research and young investigators.”

SPONSOR A RESEARCH GRANT IN A LOVED ONE’S HONOR

Medical breakthroughs through research offer the greatest opportunity to advance the knowledge of ovarian cancer. The Rivkin Center model — investing in innovative ideas, attracting the most ingenious research minds, and leveraging funding to help investigators secure larger grants — has effectively advanced prevention, early detection, and treatment of ovarian cancer.

Sponsoring this work in the name of someone you love is not only a vivid tribute; it’s also an enormous gesture of hope for the future. Awards named for patients provide a particularly poignant reminder to researchers of the importance of their work, bringing home the vital impact of their efforts to further ovarian cancer research. 

We invite donors to review a list of scientists who’ve been selected to receive Rivkin Center funding through our formal grant-making process, choose someone to sponsor for the term of the grant award, and name the award in honor or memory of a loved one.

Grant sponsors receive copies and lay summaries of their grantee’s final report and recent publications relevant to this research.

We award several different kinds of research grants:

I promised my mom that none of her girls would ever have to go through what she did. While we hated the ovarian cancer diagnosis, mom viewed it as a gift to me and her granddaughters.”
