Host a Fundraiser

Fundraisers are an important paJ&J Lemonade Standrt of the philanthropic support that Connecticut Children’s receives each year. Whether you have your own personal connection to Connecticut Children’s, are paying tribute to a family member, friend or colleague, or simply want to get your friends together to have a great time – hosting an individual or team fundraiser to benefit Connecticut Children’s is a wonderful way to share our mission and vision with the community.

  • Virtual fundraising and community events:

    Golf events, runs, walks, dance marathons, dinners, bake sales, lemonade stands, plant sales…and so much more! This is a great way to engage people who are not able to attend your event and those outside of your immediate network.

  • Special dedications:

    Birthdays, Bat/Bar Mitzvahs, engagement parties, weddings, showers, retirement, completion of treatment and more are all occasions for joy and celebration — and they can also be an opportunity to support Connecticut Children’s. Invite guests to make a donation to Connecticut Children’s in lieu of gifts or you could make a donation in honor of your guests.
