Ways to Give – Third Party Events
The Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – Foundation for St. Francis and Franklin has a diverse fundraising stream. One of the most important pieces of our fundraising includes events. Fundraising events are a great way to raise large amounts of money while also engaging new and existing donors in a fun and social atmosphere. While our staff coordinates many events throughout the year, we also rely on third party events – those that are organized and run by individuals, businesses or groups on behalf of our Foundation.
Third party events are wonderful ways for our volunteers and community supporters to get involved around a cause that is of interest to them. For example, Amy Duchac created “Alice’s Golf Outing” in honor of a friend battling breast cancer. The event includes a fun day of golf at the Oak Hills Golf Club in Oak Creek and a fantastic raffle. Proceeds from the event benefit the Foundation for St. Francis and Franklin’s massage therapy program at the Reiman Center for Cancer Care. Others have hosted events that benefit our mental health program and our neurology program.
Third party events can be anything of interest to the volunteers coordinating it – a walk, motorcycle rides, bake sales, collection canisters, dinner parties – the possibilities are endless!
If you are interested in coordinating an event that benefits an area close to your heart, please contact the Foundation at 414-647-5124 for more information.
Together, we can make our community stronger, healthier, better.
