Where Generosity Creates Miracles You Can Create a Miracle

How to Help

In order to support families and pediatric programs and services, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals relies on the incredible generosity of people like you.

Year-round fundraising activities include:

  • Radiothon, a three-day event where La Crosse Radio Group stations, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals families and volunteers come together to raise money
  • CMN Hospitals Media Campaign
  • Local and national sponsored events such as sporting events, balloon icons, raffles, auctions, talent show, book sales, bake/craft sales and more
  • Donations
  • Memorials, bequests and honorariums

If you're interested in holding a fundraiser for CMN Hospitals, please download our Third-Party Fundraising Event Guidelines and Application.

The backbone of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is not only our network of national and local sponsors but also, local children and their families. Our sponsors help us raise funds but our families express better than anyone what those funds mean, especially at a time when they need it the most.

A 'Wish List' to Benefit Children at Gundersen
In order to support families and pediatric programs and services, CMN Hospitals maintains a wish list of items that help our pediatric patients. See the Wish List.

Volunteer with us. We're always looking for volunteers to help conduct the variety of fundraising activities that happen year round to benefit CMN Hospitals. Call (608) 775-4424 and let us know your availability and contact information.

Charitable gift planning
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has been the fortunate recipient of several planned and estate gifts over the years. The simplest and most popular method to remember CMN Hospitals in this way is by making a bequest in your will. And, naming CMN Hospitals as the beneficiary of charitable gift annuities, life insurance, retirement assets, and charitable remainder trusts can be valuable both to the donor and to the future of CMN Hospitals worthwhile programs. For more information, please contact the Gundersen Medical Foundation, at (608) 775-6600 or via e-mail at gmf@gundersenhealth.org.

Other ways you can help:

Gift Cards: The new toy drive

  • We are extremely grateful for the toy drives that our community members hold to supply us with toys and small gifts for our patients to assist them with their recovery.  Since space in our hospital to store all of these lovely toys and gifts is now at a premium, you can really help us by holding a "Gift Card Drive" for our patients, instead of a traditional toy drive.
  • Gift cards allow us to maximize your gift to our patients because they provide our staff with the flexibility to make "on-demand" toy purchases as they are needed by our patients.
  • If a particular patient would benefit less from a toy and more from an educational game or book, we might be able to distribute a gift card to that patient as a gift from you to them during their recovery.
  • If you would like more information on gift card options, please call (608) 775-4424.
