Each year, generous and dedicated people like you host fundraisers to benefit Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Organizing an event is a wonderful way to touch the lives of kids who rely on Le Bonheur.

You don't need event-planning experience to make your fundraiser a success — you only need the energy and enthusiasm to make it happen.

Tax information

Contributions are tax-deductible only if they are made directly to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

If donations are deposited into an event/initiative bank account and subsequently donated in a single sum to Le Bonheur Children’s, only the individual/organization whose name appears on the check that Le Bonheur Children’s receives will receive acknowledgement for tax purposes.

If event participants would like to receive a tax receipt, please have the individual make check payable to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Each individual gift must include the value of any goods and services received as a benefit (value of a ticket or meal, value of round of golf, etc.). Only gifts above the goods and services value are considered charitable.

Proceeds should be mailed to:

Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital
Attn: Donor Relations
PO Box 41817
Memphis, TN 38174

In addition, please provide a list of your event participants to Le Bonheur including name, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number and role in your event. We may use this information to share with your participants of the impact of their support.
