Community fundraising

Planning a fundraiser?

Our team can help you plan an event that raises money for Children's Wisconsin.

Each year, many of our generous friends and partners hold fundraisers of their own, raising more than $1 million to support Children’s Wisconsin. It is because of our compassionate community of supporters that we can continue to give kids the best care every single day.

If you would like to plan an event to support Children’s, our team is here to help you with any questions you have during the planning and approval stage of your event.

Fundraising ideas


Host a golf (or other sport) tournament, a party or dinner and ask guests to pay a fee or make a donation to participate. If you are running a marathon or participating in a run/walk event, you can raise pledges from friends and family.

Kids and schools

Bake/food sales are easy to organize by themselves or in tandem with another event to raise proceeds. You could also organize a car wash, yard sale, or lemonade stand to raise funds.


Host a jeans day for employees and charge a small fee for participating. You can also place coin collection canisters in visible locations to encourage donations from customers.

Register your event

Once you have an idea for hosting a fundraising event, tell us about your event and a staff member will contact you. Events benefiting Children’s should be pre-approved by our foundation. If you would like to talk through your event with a member of our team, please contact us at (414) 266-6320.
