School Fundraising

We know that giving back and creating a sense of community is important to your school. In order to make fundraising easy and fun we have a variety of turn-key programs that you can easily integrate into your year. We invite you and your students to become part of our mission to find better treatments, to help families that cannot afford healthcare, and to provide quality-of-life programs and services in our Hospital and in the community.
