What a fabulous evening! It would not have been so without the generosity of all of our friends, family, and colleagues.
Thank You for a Great ACEF Open House!
We are thrilled to be here, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to learn, grow, and serve our community from our new office. Your attendance demonstrates immense support for the Absenger Cancer Education Foundation (ACEF) and all the work that we do.
As a matter of fact, we were asked many times how people can get involved and help. Here are three ways you can help now.
1: Introduce ACEF to Someone Affected By Cancer
If you know of someone who is affected by cancer, please take a moment to share this announcement with them to introduce them to ACEF, so they may potentially benefit from our mind-body medicine programs.
2: Corporate Founding Sponsorship to Benefit ACEF
Companies doing business on the Lakeshore employ many people affected by cancer. Our mind-body programs change the lives of those affected by cancer in a positive way.
Since the Lakeshore citizenry benefits directly from our programs, companies, and organizations doing business with the Lakeshore indirectly benefit from our services as well.
We are seeking corporate support in an effort to make all of our mind-body medicine group classes and services available FREE of charge in the future to anyone affected by cancer.
Because people want to buy from companies that give back to the community, we are seeking to find Founding Sponsors. Founding Sponsors are
- corporations headquartered in West Michigan,
- can be branches of large national/international companies, and
- small local businesses
whose philanthropic efforts align with the Absenger Cancer Education Foundation’s (ACEF) mission and vision to empower and improve the quality of life of West Michigan’s cancer survivors and their loved ones and caretakers.
To reach our budgetary goals we will be seeking annual support at the following levels from potential corporate sponsors:
- Platinum ($7,500 & up),
- Gold ($5,750 to $7,499),
- Silver ($2,750 to $5,749), and
- Bronze ($500 to $2,749).
Since ACEF’s efforts to cultivate corporate sponsors are all about relationship-building, we need help in identifying the right person to approach at potential corporate sponsors to introduce ACEF to him or her. We are hoping you could be such a matchmaker and send that person’s contact information to Werner.
3: Can YOU Become an ACEF Supporter Today?
Your gift will mean a lot to people and their families affected by cancer. Your one-time (or repeating) online donation is secure and flexible. You choose the amount you wish to give once, or each month. You can change, or cancel, your pledge at any time.
Your online donation to ACEF, made here, is processed through a secure, encrypted connection. You can give with confidence and assurance that your personal and financial information is safe and secure.
And finally, if you were unable to come to ACEF’s Open House, but still like to take a peek and/or learn more about ACEF, contact Werner at (616) 607-7360 to schedule a time to come see us.
Thank you for your support and generosity,
CEO, Absenger Cancer Education Foundation
