Raise funds for the Trust
The Children's Hospital Trust organises various events during the year and we’re fortunate that many other organisations, companies and individuals come on board by hosting their own events to assist us in our fundraising efforts.
If you believe in the excellent work that we are doing and would like to help, there are many ways you can support our charity organisation. Click here for a full list of existing events in aid of the Trust or view the options below:
Organise your own event
You can organise your own fundraising event to benefit the Hospital and paediatric healthcare programmes we fundraise for. We can offer guidance and advice on sponsorship, services, and event ideas (gala dinner, golf day, raffles, auctions etc…). Please review our event guidelines and protocols before proceeding with your event.
PLEASE NOTE: Only events approved by the Children’s Hospital Trust will be entitled to host a fundraising event in aid of the Trust and/or our priority projects. All third party event organiser smust complete an application form. Upon approval, all events/event organisers will be issued with a Letter of Authorisation on a Trust letterhead. When approached by a member of the public claiming to be fundraising for the Trust or Hospital ask to see their Letter of Authorisation to ensure that it is an approved event or project.
Participate in an existing event and fundraise
You could add value to an already established or planned event by participating and making the Children's Hospital Trust your beneficiary.
In celebration (donations in lieu)
Whether for a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or another special occasion, a thoughtful and generous way to toggle a friend or loved one you care is to make a donation in lieu of a gift.
We will mail your honouree a letter advising them of your gift (this notification will not include your donation amount, just your name) and you will receive a tax receipt and your donation will be fully tax-deductible.
When making your donation make sure you indicate the celebration occasion and include the full name of the person you are celebrating, as well as their mailing address.
You can also nominate the Trust as a beneficiary of your own special occasion. You can ask family and friends to make a donation via our website, cheque or bank deposit listing your name as the honouree.
Making a donation in memoriam is a considerate and powerful way to honour your friend or loved one who has passed on. When making your donation, please include the full name of the tribute recipient. If you would like us to notify their next of kin of your gift, make sure you also include the next of kin's full name and mailing address.
We will promptly mail a personalised sympathy card to the nominated family informing them of your gift. You will receive a tax receipt and your donation will be fully tax-deductible.
Before linking the Children's Hospital Trust or the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital's name to your event, please could you complete our fundraising initiative application form and contact us to let us know of your intentions. This will ensure that we are informed about and are able to track all events raising funding to benefit the projects we support and that all donations we receive from your initiative are accurately receipted and allocated to your chosen project or to the relevant priority project.
