Toy & Auction Item Donations
Contributions of in-kind gifts are a significant way to support Connecticut Children’s. Year-round, the Foundation collects toys for the Medical Center as well as items that can be auctioned during one of our signature fundraising events.
Special fundraising events are held throughout the year in communities all around Connecticut to benefit Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Our live and silent auctions are an integral part of our fundraising success. We welcome gift certificates, artwork, vacation homes, fine wines, signed memorabilia and so much more. To recognize your generosity, we will acknowledge your donation through a display at the event, listing in program book and/or post online. As a reminder, your donation may be tax deductible, please check with your tax advisor. If you are interested in donating an item to the Connecticut Children’s Gala or any of our other fundraising events, please submit via online form.
Toys received from the community are crucial for helping children cope with medical procedures, physicians’ visits, and hospital stays. These types of contributions allow us to reduce our operational expenses by utilizing donated services and products. Since there are specific requirements that must be met, please see our list of suggested items appropriate for children of all ages.
