Your fundraiser must align with the mission and image of Phoenix Children’s Children’s Hospital for us to endorse it. For example, we cannot endorse fundraisers sponsored by alcohol or tobacco companies. We’ll let you know if we’re concerned with any aspect of your fundraiser during our initial call.

Phoenix Children’s Hospital can only be identified as the beneficiary of your fundraiser. For example, it cannot be called "Phoenix Children’s Hospital Ride for Kids"; instead, it should be "Ride for Kids benefitting Phoenix Children’s Hospital."

You may not use PCH’s official logo to promote your own event. However, PCH does provides a benefiting logo and guidance for giving your event the PCH look. CLICK HERE to download the logo
