Why support Children’s?

Children’s is the largest pediatric health system in the region, treating more than 125,000 kids each year. By giving to Children’s, your business is helping to ensure that no child is turned away, ever, because of the family’s inability to pay. Your business is also giving a donation that will be used to support an organization that is invaluable to the community.

How do I make my donation?

Within 30 days of your campaign’s conclusion, you can send a check made payable to
Children’s Foundation to:

Children’s Foundation
c/o Barbie Hentges
2910 Centre Pointe Drive
Roseville, MN 55113

What will my business’s donation fund?

We will gladly work with you to help designate your donation to a specific program or urgent needs.

Can I use Children’s logo for my own materials?

As part of this cause marketing kit, Children’s provides your business with all the necessary materials needed to implement a successful campaign. We encourage you to take full advantage of these materials, both in print and online format. If you do choose to create additional materials, please keep in mind the following:

  • The Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota logo is a registered trademark and cannot legally be reproduced without permission.
  • Any additional materials must be reviewed by Children’s before they are used.

Will Children’s provide assistance with promotion?

Depending on the promotion, we may be able to share campaign details with patients and staff. However, we encourage businesses to use the promotional materials provided to spread the word among their patrons. Children’s is unable to provide contact information for our corporate sponsors, donors and supporters for solicitation purposes.

How should we communicate the campaign to our patrons?

As part of this cause marketing kit, Children’s Foundation provides your business with talking points to share with employees. These talking points offer a great starting point to ask if your patrons would be willing to participate, as well as answer any questions they may have. Plus, we have included posters that can be displayed at your business.
