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 an Organize a Fundraiser form. If you have questions about the process, please contact us. We look forward to working with you!
Why do fundraisers need to submit an Organize a Fundraiser form and follow specific guidelines?
We’re glad you asked! Submitting a form 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 an Organize a Fundraiser form.
Once we receive your form and approve your event, we can send you an electronic version of the benefitting Children’s Mercy logo. We ask to see any use of the hospital logo prior to distribution of your materials (fliers, websites, etc.).
