How it Works

When it comes to fundraising initiatives, the sky’s the limit. However, something that all fundraising events have in common: they take dedication and hard work. Don’t worry, we are here to help. Here are some simple steps to get you started.

Give it some thought
Consider what wonderful talents and skills you can leverage and create an idea for a fundraiser that’s realistic and sustainable. Talk it over with a few people who will have the complementary skills to support your efforts. They can be your friends, family members, colleagues., staff, or neighbours – even better: a mix of all of them to open up everyone’s world of networking!

Put your plan into action
Plan, promote and execute your initiative. Involve key people in all areas of your life and put them to work. People are always happy to help a friend – especially for a great cause. Remember, you will have our support – and gratitude – the whole way!

Your fundraiser was a staggering success! It’s time to reap the rewards. Don’t be shy or modest about sharing your initiative with others. You have earned full bragging rights! And you might just inspire and encourage new people to become supporters of the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Go-getters like you are real leaders in our community – and you can be an important mentor to someone else. On top of the amazing feeling of making a difference in a child’s life, you can now unlock new benefits such as:

  • Learn about the impact of your hard work on children and families
  • Come by for a cheque presentation/photo opportunity
  • Get a behind-the-scenes tour of the hospital
  • See your name on the donor wall
  • Get invited to special donor events

Plan for the future.
You’ve put great effort into engineering an incredible fundraiser. Your contribution is very important to children and families at the hospital, and we are so grateful. Engaging sponsors and inspiring event participants take a lot of hard work and dedication. It’s easy to get fatigued. You may want to think about who around you can carry on your legacy. Who can you groom to be your successor for organizing the event and who will you mentor next?

Thank you for wanting to make a difference at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. We are excited to work with you!
