How YOU can help fund research and save lives!
Become a volunteer and help save children’s lives, one heart at a time.
Now you can bring this national fundraiser to your child’s school, your church, a local store, restaurant, or other business for CHD Awareness Month (or any time during the year!). Click here to get started!
Host your own fundraiser
This can be anything! Tell us what you like to do and we’ll help you create a fundraising opportunity around it, such as a chili cook-off, backyard BBQ, mom-to-mom sale, bowling fundraiser, trivia night, etc. We provide CHF materials and support. This is also a great way to do something in your child’s honor or for another CHD survivor or angel. Contact us to get started!
Restaurant fundraisers (Yummm!)
Many restaurants host fundraisers for local non-profits. They will often give back a percentage of sales or provide a percent-of-giving coupon for those who want to participate. They will expect you to bring guests through their doors and market the event—all of which we can help you with.
Race for the cause
Are you a runner? Many race events offer the opportunity to raise money for the charity of your choice. You may know of one in your area, or let us help you find/create one!
Corporate giving ideas
Approach your company for a sponsorship or grant, or with a fundraising idea such as “Dress Down Friday.” We have plenty of ideas and are always happy to speak with your organization.
Help us connect
You may know someone who can help—possibly they work for a company or have an expertise that could benefit CHF’s mission. Or maybe you know a health care professional who would like to become involved with CHF. Let the brainstorming begin! We are always happy to present to businesses and organizations about CHF and with ideas for partnering in the fight against CHD.
Events currently needing committee members & volunteers:
Interested in helping with a Wine Tasting event in the greater Detroit area or a family fun evening at a local museum in Ann Arbor? Please let us know. We also host the “Michigan Congenital Heart Walk” each year, and there are many ways to help out with this community favorite!
Have an idea? We can’t wait to hear it!
Thank you for volunteering with The Children’s Heart Foundation.
