Support an existing Crowdfunding project
Patient Ambassador fundraisersChildren’s Colorado Patient Ambassadors have endured more surgeries, setbacks, struggles and hospitalizations than most people experience in a lifetime. And yet, despite all of this, they want to give back to help other patients. Each Ambassador has created a personal fundraising page to support an area of the hospital that is meaningful to them.
Greatest needsIn today’s ever-changing health care landscape, Children’s Colorado must remain nimble to provide expert care to more than 257,000 kids every year. Supporting urgent needs ensures that our hospital can respond effectively to developing child health challenges.
We encourage you to use crowdfunding to support projects or programs that you care about at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Our crowdfunding platform may not be used to raise funds for the medical treatment or care of a patient.
You can create a crowdfunding project or support an existing project. Each crowdfunding project must be approved by Children’s Colorado and have a specific funding goal and project completion timeline.
Crowdfunding projects are promoted through personal networks. This means that you will ask friends, family and other contacts to support your ideas. Crowdfunding campaigns are typically no more than 60 days.
Once a campaign goal is reached, funds are directed to fulfilling the needs of that specific project.
If a project/campaign goal isn’t reached, all of the funds raised will be directed toward the areas of greatest needs through the Children’s Hospital Colorado Children’s Fund. This fund supports the hospital’s greatest needs and enables the hospital to improve the care offered to every patient we treat.
Crowdfunding donations are tax-deductible and donors will receive a receipt directly from Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation after a gift is made. EIN#84-0813462.
