Fundraisers: Every little bit helps!

During PAM, you are invited to help raise awareness and funding for U.S. Pain and its main programs. As a nonprofit, U.S. Pain exists only thanks to the generosity of donors and grants. Every single gift helps! You can donate directly here, or host a fundraiser yourself. Here are some fundraising ideas:

Pain warrior bracelets

Another easy fundraiser and chronic pain awareness campaign is selling U.S. Pain Warrior bracelets for a small donation.

How It Works: Notify U.S. Pain that you would like to sell the bracelets as a donation. We will then mail the bracelets with U.S. Pain materials to you to help raise awareness and make your fundraiser a success!

Once the fundraiser is over, simply send a check along with the donation form to:

U.S. Pain Foundation
c/o Fundraiser
670 Newfield Street
Suite B
Middletown, CT 06457

U.S. Pain Foundation will send out a thank-you acknowledgement once the donations are received. We also ask that you send us in a picture the day you are hosting the event so we can acknowledge and promote on social media.

Alex and Ani

U.S. Pain Foundation has been honored to team with Alex and Ani for “Charmed by Charity” events.

How it works: During such an event, individuals have the opportunity to visit a specific Alex and Ani storefront or call in an order with a portion of proceeds going to U.S. Pain Foundation.

In 2014, U.S. Pain Foundation raised nearly $1,000 for our programs and initiatives through “The Charmed by Charity” events. U.S. Pain especially wants to thank our Pain Ambassador, Jeannette Rotondi, who hosted, planned and brought this concept to fruition.

Points for Pain

Created by 14-year-old Tyler Cashman in 2015, Points for Pain is a unique fundraiser and awareness campaign where sports fans can pledge donations based on the number of points their team scores. All proceeds benefit the U.S. Pain Foundation’s Pediatric Pain Program, which offers scholarships to a week-long pediatric pain summer camp, an INvisible Project magazine and gala highlighting the brave stories of young children with pain, and an educational event, Take Control of Your Pain. Anyone can work with a school to host their own Points for Pain game.

Dine to Donate

Many chain restaurants will offer Dine to Donate options for charities. These events are easy to set up and offer a great opportunity to raise awareness as well as funds to support the programs of U.S. Pain Foundation. Some of the restaurants offering Dine to Donate are: IHOP, Applebee’s, Friday’s, Houlihan’s and many others.

How it Works: Speak to the manager at your local restaurant to find out if they will host an event. Once a date is secured, U.S. Pain will help you set up a flyer to hand out and post in other local establishments to promote the event. We will also post on our events calendar and promote through social media. The day of the event, we will provide you with handout material to give to all patrons of the restaurant. This will help raise awareness for those living with chronic pain.

Following the event, simply send a check along with the donation form to:

U.S. Pain Foundation
c/o Fundraiser
670 Newfield Street
Suite B
Middletown, CT 06457

U.S. Pain Foundation will send out a thank-you acknowledgement once the donations are received.

We also ask that you send us in a picture the day you are hosting the event so we can acknowledge and promote on our social media as well as website.
