The voluntary act of donating money or goods
or providing some other support to a charitable cause.
Simply . . .  Philanthropy is giving, serving, caring, sharing.



 This fundraising program is designed 
for others to help in the fight against
pediatric cancer
by hosting your own event.


Know a child who is fighting against cancer?  Maybe it's your neighbor, your niece, your child's classmate, your son... Help us eliminate pediatric cancer and give children with cancer a smile, a laugh, the chance to just be a kid.

Through our Bearlanthropy Program you can raise money and awareness to support Bear Hugs, research to end childhood cancer or support services for a patient and their family. Complete and return an application to start planning your own Bearlanthropy event today!


Here are some ideas:

  • Host a jewelry party or fashion event.
  • Organize a walk-a-thon
  • Host an event on Facebook or Twitter                                            
  • Host a car wash, bake sale, garage sale
  • Host a split the pot raffle 
  • Host a dinner party, barbeque or bar event - ask for donations at the door 
  • Challenge other classrooms, teams, departments to raise the most money
  • Put together a gift card drive - Collect grocery and gas gift cards for families 
  • Ask for donations instead of gifts for your birthday, bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah


Be creative - think of what you would like to do to raise money and have fun! Remember Bearlanthropy is for kids and adults alike.  Become a Bearlanthropist by contacting Hillary Fash at 312.214.1200 x29 or   Need help coming up with an idea?  Just call or email Hillary.
