If you are interested in donating a portion of the proceeds from your breast cancer event to an organization in your local community, fill out this grant request form and submit it to Side-Out for approval. You cannot donate funds made during a Dig Pink event directly to an individual or family. This is because Side-Out is liable for the manner in which the funds are used and cannot easily monitor funds donated to an individual. For teams interested in raising money specifically for one patient or family, we encourage you to host a separate event and raise funds using a website designed specifically to benefit one person or group (Ex. GoFundMe). If you have any questions, contact us at
