Community Fundraisers

You don’t need experience to host an event to support Brenner Children's — just the energy and enthusiasm to make it happen!

Each year, individuals, organizations, companies, schools and passionate community members raise money by holding fundraising events to benefit Brenner Children's. All events, large or small, play a significant role in raising awareness and much-needed support for our innovative medical research and world-class care. Your fundraiser, no matter how big or small, is making an impact in the lives of our patients.

To ensure the best possible outcome for your event, we have developed an event form that will help keep your fundraiser aligned with our mission. It is vital that we approach donors in a consistent and coordinated fashion so that we can all help enrich patients' lives and care here at Brenner Children’s. Please review our guidelines for holding an event to benefit Brenner Children's.

The event form must be submitted and reviewed by the Office of Philanthropy before you hold your event so please submit it as early as possible in the planning process. 

Here are a few community fundraisers that were held in 2018 to support Brenner Children's:

  • 36 regional Great Clips locations donated a percentage of sales and all sales of Brenner Children’s cut-outs during the month of October.
  • 7-year-old Brooklyn Hutchin’s hosted a bake and lemonade sale in honor of her friend, Anslee, who was diagnosed with cancer and treated at Brenner Children’s.
  • Brenner HOPE, a medical student organization that supports pediatric oncology patients at Brenner Children’s, hosted their second annual Give Back Night at Chipotle.
  • Dancers Edge hosted a Trunk-or-Treat and silent auction with all proceeds benefiting the Brenner Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
