Schools Giving Hope for Cincinnati Children’s

Giving Hope, Cincinnati Children’s community philanthropy program, is a great way to teach students about the importance and responsibility of charitable giving.  A Giving Hope FUNdraising event is a meaningful way for students to give back to the community by supporting a group to which they can most easily relate – other kids. Students can take part in planning, promoting and executing fundraising events that will have a direct impact on kids and families they may already know. 

It’s Easy as 1 ... 2 ... 3!

  1. Choose a fundraiser and date that work best for your students and create a communication plan to get parents and students excited.
  2. Register your event with Cincinnati Children’s. Online registration is quick and easy. You can also contact Jane Livingston at or 513-636-5686. 
  3. Hold your event and celebrate your success with a check presentation to Cincinnati Children’s staff at your school.
