Fundraise for JAF

Thank you for your interest in fundraising for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation!

Please browse below to see the different ways you can raise crucial funds in support of the New England cancer patients JAF serves.

Project 800

Is your school, classroom, grade, sports team or club looking for a way to give back? Be a part of something bigger and join Project 800 with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation.

Project 800 is a community of students who come together with one common goal of supporting New England cancer patients and families struggling with financial barriers during treatment. Through this project the individual group commits to raising a minimum of $800 for JAF. Project 800 is the perfect program for educators, coaches and group leaders to engage students of all ages in philanthropic activities focused on build character, integrity and responsibility – all while having fun!

Host a single event or multiple events (car wash, bake sale, hat day, t-shirt campaign, canning campaign, dress down day, etc.) and commit to raising a minimum of $800!
