How can I fundraise for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital?

Thank you! Not only for using EventSprout, but to also use your event (no matter the size or type) to raise funds for the important work of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. 

Giving the option to your attendees to make a donation is easy:

Step 1:  When setting up your EventSprout registration page, use the dropdown menu to choose “St Jude Children’s Research Hospital” during Step 4: “Add Ons,” under “Charities”.

Step 2: Once you have saved the event, you will receive an email with instructions on how to submit the donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

*EventSprout will include all donated funds in your weekly payment and you are responsible for sending the funds to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. EventSprout is NOT responsible for distributing funds to any charity.
