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

How you can help

We accomplish all the things we do with your help. Whether it's a car wash, a birthday party, a virtual run or a school fundraiser, every dollar you raise has an impact for the more than 100,000 children and families who rely on the Alberta Children's Hospital every year. And we appreciate all your efforts!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently unable to accept in-person or cash donations. We can accept cheques made out to Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, or credit card donation (online or over the phone). We understand this may present an additional challenge for our youth fundraisers.  Please contact for more information.

Please ensure to abide by all safety protocols provided by the Alberta Government and Alberta Health Services when implementing any fundraising initiatives.


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!

Host a walk/run
Is there a special activity you love doing? Host an event! It can be virtual!

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!

Help a neighbour
Your neighbours would appreciate a hand and you can raise money while helping them out! Mow the lawn, rake the leaves, shovel the snow, you name it!


School fundraising

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

Fun Sale
Find something lots of kids could help with and sell items to help the hospital (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)!

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!

Costume contest
Host a best costume contest, just in time for upcoming Halloween!

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)!
