Community Fundraising

Fundraisers hosted by community members that benefit Texas Children’s Hospital

We’re grateful you’re here. Thank you for wanting to fundraise in support of the patients and families at Texas Children’s Hospital! There are several ways you can join us in raising funds for our patients and mission.

Online Fundraising:

Setup your own fundraiser in celebration of a birthday, a patient milestone or anniversary or any other special event. You can make a special occasion even more meaningful, honor a loved one or turn an event in to something much more by asking your family and friends to donate to Texas Children's. It's a wonderful way to recognize and commemorate the people and events in your life—and support a very worthy cause.

For many people, birthdays are a chance to do something bigger and better in the world—to finally make a difference! And what better difference to make than in the life of a child. Celebrate your birthday with Texas Children’s Hospital by setting up a birthday fundraiser!

Ask friends and family to give to Texas Children’s Hospital in honor of a loved one or caregiver, in memory of someone special, in thanksgiving for a child’s recovery or in celebration of a birth.

Whether you climb a mountain, run in a local 10K or cycle across Texas, individuals and teams can help Texas Children’s by incorporating fundraising into their sporting event.

Any idea is a good idea when it helps the patients at Texas Children’s Hospital! People of all ages can turn any idea or activity into something extraordinary for our patients.
