Third-Party Fundraising Event Application

Thank you for your interest in holding a third-party fundraising event for SAY San Diego. Please complete this application so we can gather information about your fundraising idea/event. Our Resource Development team will evaluate your application and you will receive a reply within five to seven business days.

Because of contractual agreements for our government-funded alcohol and tobacco prevention awareness programs, SAY is unable to receive donations from any business whose primary source of income is the sale or production of alcohol or tobacco.

The use of the SAY San Diego name or logo is prohibited until your application has been approved and you have received our Logo and Brand Guidelines. All marketing and communications materials also require approval prior to use.

All requests must be made at least 60 days prior to your event.
