Thank you for your interest in supporting the mission of the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center by hosting a community or third-party fundraising event. There are many ways you can help raise much-needed funds to benefit the health needs of our community. These include, but aren’t limited to, dinners, sports tournaments, races or walks, silent or live auctions, gala dinners, bake sales, fashion shows and home tours.
Before you organize and publicize your event, you will need to submit a Community or Third-Party Fundraising Event Proposal to the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center to ensure that your event will have the maximum impact and align with the Foundation’s goals, policies and procedures.
Once your event is approved, we ask that you observe the following guidelines:
Make every effort to communicate clearly that the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center is not the host of the event, but rather the beneficiary of any funds raised, whether it is for the full amount or partial proceeds.
Disclose to participants how much of the funds raised will benefit the Foundation, such as a percentage of the proceeds or the amount of money you hope to raise.
Submit the content of any publicity you plan to do, such as press releases, flyers, invitations or ads, as well as your intended use of the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center logo for review and approval by the Foundation.
Also, please note that any costs incurred for the event, as well as required permits, licenses and insurance, will be the responsibility of your organizing group. The Foundation shall in no way be held liable for any injury or damage resulting from events, approved or otherwise, which are undertaken by community organizations or other third parties that have stated that their intent is to benefit the Foundation.
Since the Foundation is committed to protecting the confidentiality of contact information for donors and volunteers, it is unable to share this information with third-party event hosts.
Thank you for your efforts to support the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center. Please note that all philanthropic funds raised from your event must be submitted to the Foundation office within 30 days of the event. Goods and services donated to the event as gifts-in-kind are not considered to be donations to the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center.
