Host a Fundraiser

From hosting a cocktail party to selling handmade blankets, community fundraisers provide critical support for the patients we serve. Create a fundraiser that's right for you and join our family of supporters!

Every great fundraiser starts with a great idea. See how to get started! It's also important to review the legal guidelines as you start to plan. Once that's done, follow the four easy steps below and you will be on your way to hosting an amazing fundraiser!

  • We'll get back to you within a week. Please submit the form at least 30 days before your fundraiser. Remember, how long it takes to plan your fundraiser from start to finish depends on the fundraiser you choose and how much time you have to give.

    • We encourage you to plan well in advance so that you have plenty of time for promotion. We can help, like by posting your event on our website's calendar, but your fundraiser will be most successful when you share information about it with people you know. Also, an online fundraising page can be a great addition to your fundraiser by sharing information with people near and far.
    • Please note that confidentiality is important to us. We are unable to release donor, volunteer, employee, patient or other mailing lists.

    • Congratulations and thank you! You've just hosted a fundraiser and helped us care for today's patients or search for tomorrow's cures.
    • We want to make sure that your contribution is recognized in a timely manner. Within 45 days of your event, please use this form (PDF) to submit your event wrap-up details along with your donation.
