Fundraising volunteer opportunities

Children's Hospital of Wisconsin relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations to help us care for kids. Volunteering is a very meaningful way to help, and we thank you for your time and skills.

Short- and long-term volunteer opportunities

We are grateful to welcome volunteers, particularly in the summer, to help staff our many fundraising events throughout northeastern and southeastern Wisconsin. We also rely on generous volunteers to assist with office support, and to attend and speak at events on our behalf.

Interested in helping to plan and organize highly visible special events benefiting Children's? We recruit many volunteer committees, supported by our Foundation staff, and have leadership and support positions available.

Share your family's story

Inspiring stories of courage, hope and healing unfold at Children’s every day. Your child is a unique thread woven into our hospital's larger story. If your child was ever treated at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, he or she is already a Children's Champion! Tell us about your Children's Champion and your child will receive a free Children's Hospital of Wisconsin t-shirt in the mail, and throughout the year your family will receive communication regarding opportunities to participate at or support Children’s. It's up to you to choose the level of participation that suits your family best.

And, if you choose to share details about your child’s experience at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, we may contact you to use your story online or in our publications. Please consider sharing your story with us — you could help inspire others facing similar challenges!
