Host A Fundraiser

We are grateful to caring friends, individuals, businesses and organizations who want to assist us in our efforts by hosting a fundraiser for the Kids’ Cancer Foundation. With their dedication we are able to provide the necessary support services these children and families need and deserve. Every event, small or large, helps to make a difference in the lives of these children.

Kids Cancer Foundation defines a “Third Party Event” as any fundraising activity by a non-affiliated group or individual, where Kids Cancer Foundation has limited fiduciary responsibilities and limited staff involvement in the production of the event. Due to limited staff resources, we cannot guarantee staff involvement or attendance at your event.

We greatly appreciate our friends in the community who wish to host fundraising events benefiting Kids Cancer Foundation. From golf outings and walks to bake sales and private dinners, hosting your own event offers a great opportunity to support the Kids Cancer Foundation.
