Change for Children

Big things come in small packages – it’s true! Every gift matters. Pennies add up to dollars, and dollars add up to pay for care and find cures. Together, when we join together, we can make a Change for Children!

Change for Children is a fundraising program designed specifically for schools, aimed at making a change in the health of children in our community. Through this program, students are challenged to collect change in a variety of ways; from placing coin banks in their classrooms, to coordinating a fundraiser like a penny war or lemonade stand.

Classes who register at least two weeks prior to their start date will receive a supply kit. To register your school, please click here
