Partner with the School of Medicine with Third-Party Fundraising
Get Started with Your Fundraiser Today!
Third-party fundraising opportunities are a great way to raise substantial donations for Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine through events. Because of these events, we are able to broaden our reach geographically and have supporters fundraising in communities beyond the CWRU campus.
Third-party fundraising opportunities allow the School of Medicine to advance education and research on our campus. These contributions motivate our students, inspire our faculty and hearten our entire university community.
Typically, we offer three areas of focus for our third-party event program: Challenge Events, Community Events and Personal Campaigns.
- Challenge Events: These turn existing high-profile events like marathons, triathlons, walks and cycling races into fundraisers for the School of Medicine. For example, when one of our supporters runs the Cleveland Rite Aid Marathon, their participation can become a fundraising opportunity for the School of Medicine
- Community Events: These are ticketed and registration-based events hosted by a supporter to benefit the School of Medicine. Whether a locally-exclusive walk, a ticketed wine tasting or an organized event in a city beyond Cleveland.
- Personal Campaigns: These give any individual the power to creatively fundraise for the School of Medicine their own way and on their own time.
