Fundraising Project and Event Proposal Guidelines
Fundraisers and community events are a great way to support Friends of Children’s Hospital. Our mission is to elevate the healthcare experience for children in Mississippi to create HOPE, SMILES and a place where patients can be kids! Dollars raised at these events help Friends raise important funds to make hospitalizations less stressful and provide hope and healing as children fight to overcome critical illnesses and injuries.
We appreciate your interest in helping Friends of Children’s Hospital support Children’s of Mississippi;
Mississippi’s only children’s hospital devoted exclusively to the care of sick or injured children.
These guidelines are for individuals, organizations and groups interested in planning an event or fundraising project
benefiting Friends of Children’s Hospital.
Friends will need to approve fundraising projects and events to ensure they represent the organization and hospital
appropriately and uphold our mission and image.
The use of the Friends of Children’s Hospital logo and name may be used only after Friends has granted approval. All printed materials, letters and other items to be published or printed with the logo or name must be submitted to Friends for approval before printing and distribution. All edits or revisions will be discussed with the organizer.
In naming the event, Friends of Children’s Hospital must be used as the beneficiary of the net proceeds. For
example: (Event name) benefiting Friends of Children’s Hospital. If there will be co-beneficiaries, please note on
the attached form.
If an organization plans to solicit contributions, sponsorships or in-kind gifts from businesses, the list of potential
sponsors should be reviewed and approved by Friends prior to approaching them. Any letters or mailings to
potential donors must be approved by Friends.
Friends can provide logos, photographs, patient stories and children’s hospital data if needed for letters, flyers and
programs. Once approved, your event will be promoted on Friends social media platforms.
A Friends staff member is available to answer questions regarding the organization or planning your fundraiser.
Friends can act as a media liaison and advise organizers if needed.
We ask that all net proceeds be submitted to Friends of Children’s Hospital within 45 days of the event.
If you would like to schedule a check presentation, please contact friendsofch.org.
