Donate Items for Events

The Foundation is grateful for items that can be used to leverage support at our events, particularly:

  • Goodie items for gift bags
  • Raffle Items
  • Gift Certificates
  • Auction items

If you are interested in donating an item, please contact Kate Kesner, Special Events Officer, by phone at (313) 745-8814 or email at kate.kesner@chmfoundation.org.  Please note that we may only accept new, unused items in their original packaging for event use.

Gifts In-Kind Donations

An additional way to support the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation is through the donation of toys and games. Donations of toys and games help supplement the activities and entertainment that Child Life Services at Children’s Hospital of Michigan provides for children. For more information about tax-deductible in-kind contributions, contact Cari Tiensivu at (313) 745-5373.
