Frequently Asked Questions

How and when do I register my event?

To request your Community Fundraising Event Registration Form, please call 216-983-2200. Help us help you! Please register your event at least 8 weeks prior to your event. If you are hosting a recurring, annual event, you will need to submit a new event registration form each year.

How do I know if my event has been approved? Who is my UH staff partner at UH?
What events will not be approved?

We reserve the right to deny registration for a fundraising activity that does not complement the mission and values of University Hospitals or its related entities. UH cannot sponsor or endorse fundraising events or products.

Can I use the hospital's name and logo?
Can someone from UH help me plan and run my event?

Your UH staff partner can provide guidance, best practices and various resources to support your fundraising efforts; however, you and your committee will be responsible for planning and managing the event.

Can I use the University Hospitals 501(c)(3) federal tax exemption number?
Can University Hospitals issue tax receipts to my donors?

Individuals and/or businesses that make checks payable to University Hospitals will receive a thank you letter and tax receipt from the hospital. UH cannot provide acknowledgment letters for gifts of cash, credit or checks made payable to a third-party.

Can I volunteer at the hospital?
When and where do I send my event proceeds?

All event proceeds must be submitted to UH within 60 days following your event. Checks should be made payable to the University Hospitals entity identified on your Fundraising Event Registration Form. You can submit donations prior to your event, but be sure to take into consideration any expenses you may need to pay as UH cannot provide reimbursement in any form.
