Your Leadership Creates Lasting Impact

When you organize an event or fundraiser for Shepherd Center, you are creating new chapters and “I can” moments for thousands of patients and their families. From 5k races to golf and clay shooting tournaments and charity bike rides, the possibilities are endless.

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon submission of your application, please allow 5-7 business days for a response. Please give as many details as possible on the application to help expedite the review process.

By receiving approval of your event with us, a Cause and Community team member will contact you. Upon approval, we will also provide a letter of endorsement so people in the community will know your event benefits Shepherd Center.

When using the Shepherd Center Foundation name for your event, you should state “an event benefiting Shepherd Center” or “(Event Name) benefitting Shepherd Center.”

Upon approval, and within our usage guidelines, you may use our logo on any materials (website, flyer, banner, etc.) that you create for your event. Once your event is approved, you will be sent the official logo.

Because of the large demand for staff and patient time, we cannot guarantee a Shepherd Center representative will be available to attend and represent the organization. However, each event is considered on a case-by-case basis.

All donations made directly to “Shepherd Center Foundation” will receive a tax receipt in accordance with IRS standards. Donor and contact information must be provided.

No, anyone can host a fundraising event! If you are currently with an organization that claims 501(c)(3) status and people make checks out to your organization, Shepherd Center will be unable to issue tax receipts to them.

Shepherd Center may not fund or financially support community events. This will be discussed during the application process.
