Host an Event

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

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.
