Host A Community Fundraiser

Thanks for your interest in hosting a community fundraiser.

Fill out the form to the right and let’s get started.

At Cradles to Crayons, we think a good partnership is where both parties are willing to put energy, time, and creativity into an event – ensuring success to both our organization and your business. By partnering with us to raise funds, you are helping to fill the shelves in our Giving Factory so we can respond to requests and can provide more kids with the everyday essentials they need. Here’s how to host a community fundraiser –

Step one: Create your event. We’re here to help! Whether you’re a small restaurant, bar, clothing store or company that is looking to give back, we will work together to develop a plan. This could be a percentage off a service or product, or 100% of proceeds donated to C2C –either way we will lend a helping hand in creating a successful promotion.

Step two: Customize the outreach strategy. This opportunity can run for a week, the entire month, or only on certain days. You decide!

Step three: Celebrate your impact. After the event, bring your team into The Giving Factory, our warehouse and distribution center in Logan Square to volunteer! Cradles to Crayons offers shifts two times a day on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and one weekend day. We welcome the opportunity to host your team.

Together we can make a difference!
