Give in Other Ways

There are many ways to contribute in a meaningful way, and the Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF) offers options for individuals, businesses, and groups to help in the search for cures. Listed below are a few ideas for consideration.

    Many companies have workplace giving campaigns and matching gift programs that allow employees to contribute to their favorite charity and double their donation. Other options include United Way, Combined Federal Campaign, and State Employee Campaigns. If your company participates in the United Way, you can designate the Foundation to be the recipient of your contribution or payroll deductions. Federal employees can give through the Combined Federal Campaign by writing “Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation” on the pledge card and using the Foundation’s national designation code 20736.

    To find out if your employer has a matching gift program, use our Matching Gift Employer Search or check with your human resource department.
      Consider Automatic Giving
    Demonstrate your commitment to funding pediatric cardiomyopathy research by making an annual pledge of support to the Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation. All you need to do is to determine the amount you want to give and the frequency of payment, and the Foundation will automatically process it annually, semiannually, quarterly, or monthly. Your gift can be in memory of someone or in honor of a loved one. You can set your preference on our donation page under "donation frequency."
    Cherish the memory of someone you love or honor a friend or family member with a tribute gift in their name. It is a unique gift for someone who has everything, or it can be a caring way to mark a celebratory occasion such as a birthday or anniversary. You can make a one time or monthly tribute donation through the donation page and, a “Hope” tribute card will be sent acknowledging your gift.
    Do you enjoy running, walking, cycling, or competing in endurance events? Whether you are running your first marathon or walking in your local park, you can join Team CCF to help raise funds and awareness. Show your passion for your sport and challenge others to go the distance for cardiomyopathy. CCF can help you set up a personalized team page to make it easier to collect pledges for your athletic efforts.
    Hosting a CCF event is the perfect way to raise funds and spread awareness of cardiomyopathy. Fundraisers can take many forms and be organized around any special interest, fun activity, or unique skill. CCF has a list of fundraising ideas that may spark your imagination. February Heart Month and September Cardiomyopathy Awareness Month are ideal times to plan an event, but raising awareness doesn't have to be restricted to these two months. You can make a difference throughout the year by organizing your own themed fundraiser or hosting a Bake for a Cure sale in your community. Contact CCF to register your event and request a fundraising kit.
    You can easily raise funds online by creating a personalized fundraising webpage through Facebook or Crowdrise. Both fundraising options allow you to tell your story, add a photo, and create a fundraising goal. Friends and family can donate directly to your Facebook or Crowdrise page, and CCF will receive donations through Network for Good.

    You can create a Facebook fundraising page directly from your Facebook homepage. Simply click on “Fundraiser” under the “Create” heading on the left-hand side, select the “Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation,” and complete your fundraiser details. Click here for instructions and view an example.

    Crowdrise is another option for raising funds. Through your page, donors can make a contribution and participants can join your efforts. There is also a progress thermometer to see how close you are to your fundraising goal.
