Grow & Give: Ideas, FAQs, & Resources

What are the rules?

Grow & Give is what you make it so we don't want to bog you down with rule after rule! While many participate by growing out their facial hair, others rock a boldly blue style by painting their nails blue, wearing a fake ‘stache, getting blue highlights, or getting creative in other ways!

If you are getting your colleagues involved, you can skip facial hair altogether and raise funds at a happy hour, for a casual blue jeans Friday, or dedicate a portion of sales for a period of time! The most important part is driving awareness and raising money to support those affected by prostate cancer.

If November doesn't work for you, no worries! We can help you Grow & Give all year 'round.

Where does the money go?

So glad you asked! ZERO spends more than 85 cents of every dollar raised on patient support programs, research for new treatments and better diagnostics, and awareness outreach — no other prostate cancer org puts more of your funds directly into programs. We've got the best possible rating from Charity Navigator, the go-to guys for tracking how responsible nonprofits are with your money.

We're 100% U.S.-based, working across the country to attack this disease on all fronts: from direct assistance and patient navigation for the patients who already have the disease, to spreading the word about free testing and how early detection can save your life, to getting in front of policy-makers to protect and expand research funding, and helping remove barriers for those at the highest risk for the disease.

Bottom line: tens of thousands of patients are alive today because of medical advances that have lowered mortality rates, personalized help to make sure they don't lose access to their medications, and early detection that keeps aggressive disease from going off the rails. Your fundraising, generosity, and hard work spreading awareness is the reason why. Let's grow together to save more lives!

How Do I Spread Awareness?

Start with the people you know best. Be genuine. Make it personal.

Whatever your reason is for participating in Grow & Give, it's important to communicate that through your fundraising efforts. People support people. Why is zeroing out prostate cancer important to you?

Once you have your story down, get started sharing your message through social media. Here is our top 5 social media tips to help you out:

  1. Create a Facebook Fundraiser through your fundraising page. Anything you raise will show on both the Grow & Give site and on Facebook.
  2. Post often. Post regular updates showing off your beard or boldly blue style, reminding your network of your mission. Don't be shy - people need to be reminded to take action.
  3. Get creative. Videos and photos grab more attention than just a simple post. Don't be afraid to have a little fun with it.
  4. Challenge your community. Create a competition among your network by challenging them to donate and participate. Call them out by tagging them in your posts. Use #growandgive and #endprostatecancer to extend your reach.
  5. Offer incentives to encourage donations. What can you offer to appeal to your unique community? Think about discounts on products/services, favors, or sprinkle in something fun like vowing to temporarily dye your hair blue.
