  5. Fundraise

Whether you have a special connection to WMCHealth or are working on a service project, fundraising can unite your community, school or workplace behind a worthy cause.

For whatever reason you’ve chosen to sponsor a fundraiser for us, we thank you.

In Your School

Children, teens and young adults of all ages can be fundraisers! You are never too young to make an impact. Children, with the support of their schools and families, host FUN-draisers such as taping a teacher to the wall, pie a teacher in the face, spell-a-thons and walks to raise money for healthcare in their community.

In the Community

Rally the support of your community to ensure your family, friends and neighbors continue to receive high-quality healthcare close to home.  Religious and civic organizations, sports teams, and other community groups are stronger together when they host events and fundraisers, such as active events, including golf outings or 5k races, food and wine events and more. The possibilities are endless. 

In Your Workplace

Colleagues uniting for a cause. Support local healthcare by raising funds through a parking spot challenge, office bake-off, or department feud (family feud with an office twist!) You can double your impact if your employer sponsors a matching gift program.

Dance Marathon

Participants are encouraged to host events throughout the year (bake sales, game nights, fun runs, etc.) and create web pages that can be shared with family and friends on social media.
