Here are some ideas to help you raise funds to support our patients at the Jonathan Jaques Children's Cancer Center!
Fundraising is not mandatory, but it is easier than you think whether you collect $5 or $1,500!

Every dollar makes a difference!


How do I get to my fundraising goal?

Know your stuff!   Be informed about who benefits from this event, what this event means to you, and why you’re doing this.

Be prepared!   A donation could come from anyone, anywhere, anytime. Spread the word to your friends and family that you are raising money for the patients and families at the Jonathan Jaques Children's Cancer Center. For additional promotional material, contact Lourdes 562-933-8604 or email us at:

Create a Personal Fundraising Page!   It’s one of the easiest ways to let all your friends and family know what you are doing, why you are fundraising, and to ask for their support. Don't forget to set your fundraising goal, add your personal story as to why you are fundraising, and add some pictures.

Share!   Post your fundraising page on your Facebook and Twitter pages WEEKLY

Personal Contact!   Send an email to everyone you know with a link to your personal fundraising page. Make it personalized - tell your story and why this event is important to you.

Company contributions!   Don’t forget to check if your company has a matching gift program and take advantage of doubling your money!

Hit the streets!   Ask your dry cleaner, your local bar or restaurant, and your favorite clothing store - you never know who also has a connection to Miller Children's like you!
