FundraisingIn 2017, U.S. Pain is asking its community to get involved with fundraising efforts whenever possible—whether simply asking a family member for a donation or hosting a Points for Pain game.

“U.S. Pain operates dozens of programs that are free to its members and advocates for chronic pain patients across the country,” says Nicole Hemenway, vice president of U.S. Pain. “But we can only do those things through donations, sponsorships, and grants, and we need our members help in making them happen.”

There are many different fundraising options for anyone who wants to help U.S. Pain achieve its mission. Here is a brief list of possibilities:

  • Host an event, such as a dress-down day at work or school, a walk-a-thon, or a Points for Pain basketball game;
  • Coordinate a shopping fundraiser, such as a Alex and Ani Charmed for Charity event, a Dine to Donate night at a local restaurant, or help sell Bravelet bracelets;
  • Shop through AmazonSmile and encourage friends and family members to do the same;
  • Get involved with the “Real Hope, Real Heroes” by selling tickets or securing an auction item.

More details about all of these opportunities is available at https://uspainfoundation.org//awareness/#fundraising. U.S Pain is also always open to new ideas and has a team available to help members plan and execute fundraisers. For questions or more information, email fundraising@uspainfoundation.org.
