At Emily’s Entourage (EE), we believe that magic can happen when you believe in your power to make a difference. Our Champions program celebrates philanthropic leaders who have recognized their change-making abilities and are helping us speed lifesaving breakthroughs and a cure for people with nonsense mutations of cystic fibrosis (CF). Champions are asked to leverage their individual connections and reach out to their networks to meet a fundraising goal prior to the Evening with Emily’s Entourage gala on Dec. 4, 2021.
Why Become a Champion?
Champions are committed to making a difference and share in our belief that each one of us has the power to change the world for the better. When you become a Champion, you join the disruptive, change-making force that is EE.
In addition to making a difference in the lives of those with nonsense mutations of CF, our Champions have the opportunity to network with other philanthropic leaders and are celebrated in a variety of ways, including being recognized across our digital channels and at our annual galas. Plus, the top fundraiser will take home our “Champion of the Year” award! (Talk about a resume builder!)
Who Can Participate?
The Champions program is open to anyone of any age. Register as an individual, with a partner, or as a team (think: spouses, friends, siblings, roommates, sororities and fraternities, coworkers, sports teams, school classrooms). The sky is the limit and there are no age requirements!
When you sign on to become a Champion, you commit to meeting a fundraising goal of $1,500 by our 10th annual Evening with Emily’s Entourage gala on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021, where you will be recognized for your efforts. There are a variety of ways you can meet your goal, including reaching out to your network via social media or email, taking one of your favorite hobbies or activities and turning it into a fundraiser, donating an item to EE’s Charitybuzz auction, and more! The opportunities are endless!
Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you’re well-equipped to make that “ask” of your connections, whatever route you decide to take. When you sign up to become a Champion, you’ll have a number of resources at your disposal, including:
- A personalized fundraising page
- Custom email and text templates to streamline communications with your donors
- Support and advice from our Champions subcommittee chair and EE staff
- A blog post highlighting your involvement as a Champion
You’ll also receive tickets for you and a guest to attend the Evening with Emily’s Entourage gala on Saturday, Dec. 4, and a special gift from EE to express our sincere gratitude for your support!

“This is kind of meta, but the thing that I’m most proud of is what Emily’s Entourage represents about humanity and about people — how much people want to be part of change, and how much people care about other people. Being on the front lines and seeing how many people have no other connections to CF but hear our story, have it touch their hearts, and join our team, that is just really the most moving thing in the world.” – Emily Kramer-Golinkoff, co-founder, Emily’s Entourage
