DONATE NOW Together we can help build healthier futures for all our children.

How you can help

We would not be able to accomplish all the things we do without your help. Whether it's a lemonade stand, a birthday party, a bake sale, a golf tournament or a school event, every dollar you raise has an impact for the 102,000 children and families that rely on the Alberta Children's Hospital every year. And we appreciate all your efforts!


Personal fundraising

Set up a fundraiser on your own or with your family, friends or community! Here are some ideas:

Birthday HERO
Ask your friends and family to make a donation to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation instead of bringing a gift for your birthday!

Fun sale
Use your creativity to organize a (bake, art, jewellery, pizza, popcorn, etc.) sale!

Host a walk/run/swim/dance
Is there a special activity you love doing? Host an event!

Lemonade or hot chocolate stand
Help your neighbours cool down or warm up, depending on the season!

Car wash
Gather the soap, sponges and hoses and have a blast cleaning cars!

Garage sale
They say one kid’s junk is another kid’s treasure ... clean out your room and sell any books and toys you don’t use anymore!

Head shave
Do you know someone who lost their hair while going through cancer treatment? Show your support and organize a group to shave their heads!

Toy or book drive
Collect brand new toys and/or books that can be used as special gifts for kids in the hospital throughout the year!

Shovel driveways or sidewalks
Your neighbours would appreciate a hand and you can raise money while helping them out!


School fundraising

Organize a fundraiser at your school and then get everyone involved! Here are some ideas:

Host a 24-hour activity where donations and registration fees help the hospital. For example, a Bike-a-thon, Dance-a-thon, Walk-a-thon, etc. (toolkit available)!

Fun sale
Find something lots of kids could help with and sell items to help the hospital (bake, jewellery, art, book, recipe sales, etc.)!

Theme day
Charge students a dollar each to dress in a theme for the day (hat, pajama, jersey, ugly sweater,  wacky hair, or beach day)!

School BBQ
Get local grocery stores to donate food or have families at your school sign up to bring burgers or hot dogs!

Dance/talent show
Gather your classmates or youth group and put your talents on display! Charge admission for family, friends or peers to come enjoy a night of entertainment!

Head shave
Do you know someone who lost their hair while going through cancer treatment? Show your support and organize a group to shave their  heads!

Haunted house
Create a spooky fun house at your school with entry by donation!

Principal for a day
With donations, students can enter a draw to be in charge for a full day (with your principal’s permission, of course)!
