Founded in early 2011, Tap Cancer Out is a Jiu-Jitsu based nonprofit dedicated to defeating cancer by raising awareness and funds for the organizations that fight cancer every day.

Through merchandise sales, special events, sponsorships and direct donations, Tap Cancer Out aims to provide cancer-based organizations with thousands of dollars of funding each year—all on behalf of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu community. Our 2013 beneficiary is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

What We’re About

Tap Cancer Out gives the grappling community a way to give back, together. It gives us a way to show the world that our sport is more than just chokes, armlocks and submissions. It also gives us a chance to show that we’re more than just fighters. We’re teammates. We’re families. We’re fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters, and we’ve all been affected by cancer.

Our Value Proposition

Our martial art, and the community therein, have the opportunity to make a tangible difference in this world. However, we can’t do it alone. Corporate sponsors play an integral role in helping us defeat cancer and showing the world what type of people the jiu-jitsu community is made of.

When you align your school (or brand) with Tap Cancer Out, you are aligned with a unique nonprofit organization based specifically within jiu-jitsu and grappling. Your involvement will have a direct, tangible and immediate impact on our ability to defeat this relentless disease.

Sponsors of Tap Cancer Out provide us with fundraising perks for our tournament competitors as well as the ability to cover our operating expenses. This allows for all public donations and merchandise proceeds to go directly in the hands of our beneficiary organizations. This undoubtedly will motivate more donors to support Tap Cancer Out with the understanding that 100% of donations will help fight cancer.

In 2012, sponsors including Predator BJJ, BJJHQ.com, LapelChoke.com, Manto, Scramble, Fight Soap and more helped us raise over $26,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. They were exposed to our hundreds of competitors and tens of thousands of fans and followers online.

Benefits of Corporate Social Responsibility

Your sponsorship of Tap Cancer Out not only benefits the cancer fighting organizations we support, but also benefits your school in return. Our Corporate Sponsorship Program is designed to showcase your company or school’s generosity and willingness to support a jiu-jitsu based nonprofit, as well as the fight against cancer, through unique and compelling involvement opportunities.

Your school or brand will be one of the few that can show your current and prospective customers that you are making a tangible difference in this world by supporting philanthropic endeavors within the jiu-jitsu community. As a sponsor, we’ll provide you with the following:

  • Customized banner to be hung in your school showing your sponsorship of Tap Cancer Out, complete with your school’s name
  • School name, logo, and description featured on our Sponsors page
  • Link back to your school’s website (or site of your choice)
  • School name and logo featured on signage, flyers, shirts and more at each event we host

While these benefits are great, we know that your support of Tap Cancer Out is purely to help defeat this disease that is taking too many loved ones from us. Your support means everything to us and we truly couldn’t achieve our goals without you.
