What is a Third Party Fundraiser?

A Third Party Fundraiser is an event planned and hosted by someone other than the organization or charity the money is being raised for. An individual or business may create a fundraising campaign to benefit a particular non-profit. 

Huron Shores Hospice benefits from third party events by:

  • Raising awareness of the work we do

  • Interacting with the community

  • Receiving financial support from event net revenues for programs and the operation of our residential hospice suites
