Frequently Asked Questions about Fundraisers and Events
What do I need to do to host an event to raise money for Children’s Mercy?
Please take a moment to share more about your fundraising event by reviewing our Community Fundraiser Guidelines and then submitting a Community Fundraising Event Application. If you have questions about the application, please contact us. We look forward to working with you!
Why do fundraisers need to submit an application and follow specific guidelines?
We’re glad you asked! Submitting an application helps us plan how to best support your event. Also, making us aware of your efforts and being formally approved adds credibility to your fundraiser when you’re seeking gifts or if we receive inquiries about your fundraising efforts. The Community Fundraiser Guidelines ensure all fundraisers reflect the mission of Children’s Mercy, and they provide organizers with important IRS information related to nonprofit fundraisers.
Can I have a copy of the hospital’s logo for my event flyer, website, etc.?
Yes! First, we need some information about your fundraiser. If you have not already, please tell us about your fundraising event by submitting a Community Fundraising Event Application.
Once we receive your application and approve your event, we can send you an electronic version of the Children’s Mercy logo. We ask to see any use of the hospital logo prior to distribution of your materials (fliers, websites, etc.).
