Champions for Kids

The Champions for Kids program allows community members to host fundraisers that benefit the lifesaving care of Norton Children’s Hospital.

Become a Champion!

Planning a community fundraiser is exciting! Not only do you bring together friends, family and other generous and caring people for a fun and meaningful event, but you become a hero to many children and their families. The Children’s Hospital Foundation staff is here to support you every step of the way to ensure your fundraiser is a success.

Getting started is simple. Complete and submit our Champions for Kids application. Once your application is received, a Children’s Hospital Foundation staff member will contact you.

What kind of fundraiser can you plan?

The possibilities are endless! A good starting point is to brainstorm events you have organized or attended. Chat with friends and family members to get their creative input. If you need inspiration, here are a few events that have been successful:

  • Holiday-themed party
  • Luncheon
  • Restaurant or retail promotion
  • Sporting event (golf outing, kickball, etc.)
  • Bake sale
  • Coin drive
  • Garage sale
  • Walk-a-thon

We are here to help!

Our staff is ready to ensure your fundraiser is a success. Here is what we can do:

  • Offer advice and expertise on event planning and fundraising.
  • Promote the event or project to our donors and employees through social media and e-blasts.
  • Coordinate and attend check presentations on-site, as agreed upon.
  • Provide promotional/giveaway items (such as pins with our logo).
  • Acknowledge direct contributions to Norton Children’s Hospital.
  • Provide and approve use of our logo, as appropriate.
  • Assist in directing contributions toward areas of special interest or areas of need within the hospital.
  • Provide a letter of authorization to validate the authenticity of the event and its organizers.

Here are some things we are unable to do

  • Provide our tax exemption number.
  • Provide a certificate of insurance and permits for events.
  • Offer funding or reimbursement for expenses.
  • Share mailing lists of donors or vendors.
  • Provide hospital or foundation stationery.
  • Guarantee attendance of patients, physicians or staff at the event.
