Frequently Asked Questions
- What is a personal fundraising page?
Fundraising Pages are an opportunity for you to support the Hospital’s mission by reaching out to your own network on our behalf. Each page includes a personal story, photos, progress towards your fundraising goal, and a guest book with notes of encouragement from your supporters.
- Why should I set up a personal fundraising page?
Online donations are the most cost-effective way to give to Phoenix Children’s, and the most convenient way for your friends, family and colleagues to support you.
- What fundraising tools and assistance are provided?
When your personal fundraising page is created, you will find a sample email solicitation, which you can use or customize. You can also customize the thank-you email message that is automatically sent to your donors.
- What if I run into problems while creating my personal page?
The process has been designed for minimum fuss and maximum ease, but if you run into any problems, we're here to help. You can contact firstname.lastname@example.org or the Foundation team (602) 546-4483
- How much of my money will actually go to hospital programs and research?
100% of the money raised benefits the children and families we serve.
- If I reach my fundraising goal, can I keep collecting donations?
Yes! And you can increase your goal too.
- Can I accept checks?
Yes! If someone wishes to provide an offline gift in support of your fundraising page, ask them to give you a check payable to “PCH Foundation.” Once you have collected their check, enter the amount in your Champion Center’s Fund Summary page so it can count towards your progress. Please send all checks to Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation Attn: Online Fundraising, 2929 E Camelback Road, Suite 122, Scottsdale, AZ 85016 with your name, email address and page name so we can credit them properly. If you have any questions about this process, please contact email@example.com.
- How do I send emails out to my contacts?
From your Champion Center, click on the “Email” tab. From here you can upload your address book, draft your emails and send them out to your contacts. There are even sample emails and suggested language that you can start with.
