WHAT IS THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL COLORADO MIGHTY MILLIONS RAFFLE?
Children’s Hospital Colorado Mighty Millions Raffle is a community fundraising initiative. The raffle is an opportunity for the public to help raise funds for Children’s Colorado by buying a ticket for a chance to win incredible prizes. Net proceeds raised are used for Children’s Colorado’s greatest needs, providing the hospital with resources to care for its young patients. A Children’s Hospital Colorado Mighty Millions Raffle ticket purchase is not a charitable donation, but rather an opportunity to support the hospital through participation in a gaming event where ticket buyers have a chance to win prizes.
HOW DOES CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL COLORADO FOUNDATION USE RAFFLE TICKET PROCEEDS?
Children’s Hospital Colorado is the only comprehensive nonprofit children’s hospital in the region. Every dollar raised from the community is used to further the hospital’s mission of caring for and curing children through providing high-quality care, education, research and advocacy.
The net proceeds of the raffle, after prizes are awarded and expenses are paid, support Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Children’s Fund. The Children’s Fund is used for Children’s Colorado’s greatest needs, allowing the hospital to improve the care offered to every child who comes through its doors. The hospital strives to provide each child — as well as each child’s family — with the best possible healthcare experience and outcome. The Children’s Fund helps to do just that.
