How To Help

Events by Others

You can make a difference in a manner that is unique to you.

Also known as  independent fundraising, third-party, free-agent or peer-to-peer, these are events organized and carried out by individuals and businesses in our community who are moved by our mission and want to host a fundraiser on CAPTAIN CHS's behalf. We are humbled by the supporters who contact us each year to host an event on our behalf.

Join the CAPTAIN CHS CARES COMMISSION and be part of our mission to strengthen our community.

The event can be as simple or as elaborate as you'd like! Here are a few fundraiser Ideas:

  • Host a bake sale or lemonade stand.
  • Host a bottle-and-can drive.
  • Host an "A-Thon" -- a bowlathon, bikeathon, jumping rope-athon, ...
  • Host a pancake breakfast. Or a luncheon. Or a dessert party (who doesn't like a dessert party?!).
  • If you're already hosting an event, such as a golf tournament or a conference, that holds a raffle, auction or a 50/50, follow the lead of the NYSCEEA conference or The Halfmoon Republican Committee and donate the proceeds to CAPTAIN CHS.
  • Host a car wash
  • As for donations to CAPTAIN CHS in lieu of gifts for your birthday, wedding, anniversary, or other occasion.
  • Create a Facebook Fundraiser! (Click on the link below for a How To.)
