How to become a Community Partner
1. Review our Community Partnership Guidelines
- Komen Houston has the right to approve events that represent the organization appropriately, uphold our promise and image, and offer net proceeds or an acceptable percentage of net revenue to Komen Houston. The completed Third Party Events Application must be submitted to Komen Houston at least 30 days in advance of the event for timely consideration
- As a responsible steward of public funds, Komen Houston believes that a reasonable percentage of the gross revenue from all fundraising events should be directed to our mission. Therefore, a third party that organizes an event to benefit Komen Houston is required to keep expenses to 25 percent or less of gross revenue. Exceptions may be made for first year events and on a case-by-case basis.
- All sporting related events held at a specific location, and some product promotions require necessary permits and insurance.
- The following entities must be added as additional insured parties:
– Susan G. Komen® Houston – 602 Sawyer Ste. 201 Houston, TX 77007
– Susan G. Komen® – 5005 LBJ Freeway, Ste. 250 Dallas, TX 75244
