Organize Your Own Fundraiser

By organizing your own fundraising event, you can enlist all of the people you’re connected with to support your cause. No matter the size of your fundraiser, you can make a difference. Note that fundraising events require prior approval and support from Children's, which you can learn more about below.

Fundraiser ideas

Identify what type of fundraising event you’d like to host. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination, but here’s a list of ideas to get you started:

  • Dinner with friends: Host a dinner party for friends, asking each couple to bring a check for Children’s in the amount it would have cost them to go out for dinner. Even an intimate dinner party can raise important funds to help Children’s.
  • Kids can help kids, too: Encourage your children to do around-the-house chores or open a lemonade stand to raise money for Children’s. Generous Generation activities offer fun opportunities to teach children the importance of giving back on behalf of the patients at Children's.

  • Sporting activities: Consider organizing a running or cycling event, tennis tournament, fishing event, walk-a-thon or any number of activities that engage sporting enthusiasts
  • Unwrapping help for Children’s: Rather than asking for birthday or other special occasion gifts, invite party guests to bring a check for Children’s. Even while having a fun celebration, attendees know they are helping young patients.
  • Put it on the menu: A restaurant or local store can donate a portion of sales or gratuities to Children’s.
  • Strength in numbers: Think of fundraising activities for groups that are already established such as knitting groups, scrapbooking groups or book clubs. Incorporate a fundraising activity that the group can do together at a regularly scheduled meeting or gathering. Selling knitted items or scrapbooks can be fun ways to use talents to help Children’s.
  • Community yard sales: Invite several neighbors or friends to set up tables for a community yard sale with proceeds to benefit Children’s.
