Fundraising Tips & Incentives

With more than 36 million people affected by lung disease in the US, each and every dollar raised will support lung disease research, educational programs and advocacy efforts. We need your help today to ensure there is a future free of lung disease with healthy air to breathe!

Want to know how to get the most out of your online fundraising efforts? Follow these steps to success:

  • Make a Donation and Ask Friends & Family to Match It: When you make a personal donation, any amount you're comfortable with, you are demonstrating your commitment to the cause and it will encourage others to donate with confidence.
  • Make it Personal: If you have a personal reason for participating, share your story on your personal page and share it with prospective donors like your friends, family, and co-workers.
  • Get Social: Facebook Fundraiser is a great way to let everyone know about your participation in the Fight For Air Climb. Be sure to login to your participant center to get started. Also, check out our How To Create A Facebook Fundraiser guide to start you on your way!
  • Use our Fundraising Tools: If you're stuck or need some Climb materials, help is just a click or phone call away. Go to your Participant Center or contact your events staff.

Matching Gifts

Fundraising Incentives

Be Rewarded

We recognize that some of you may prefer to forgo your prize to ensure all of your donations go to support research, education and advocacy efforts. In that case, you can decline your incentive post-event.

Corporate Cup T-Shirt

Want to show off your Corporate Cup accomplishment? Those who fundraise or make a self-donation of $41 or more will receive the official 41st Anniversary Corporate Cup T-Shirt! This $41 gift represents the 41 years we've been in the Omaha community supporting more than 200,000 Nebraskans living with lung disease such as Lung Cancer, Asthma, and COPD.

Sport your swag with pride! And don’t forget, individuals who self-donate raise twice as much as individuals who don't.

Corporate Cup "Cups"

All participants who raise $100 or more, will receive the 41st Annual Corporate Cup technical tee AND the official 41st Annual Corporate "Cup"! T-shirts and cups will be available for pick up at Packet Pick-Up.

Please note that participants who do not raise $100 will not receive an event shirt or the Corporate Cup “cup.”

Those who raise over $100 may be eligible for additional fundraising incentives. This is our way of saying thank you for your fundraising accomplishments in support of the mission of the American Lung Association.
