Host a Fundraiser

Hosting a Fundraiser to Benefit Cornerstone of Hope

Thank you for your interest in supporting Cornerstone of Hope by hosting a personal fundraising event to support grieving children, teens and adults in our community.   A personal fundraising event is one in which an individual or organization, outside of Cornerstone of Hope, organizes and executes, and which the proceeds will directly benefit our organization. The individual or organization is responsible for the major components of the planning of the event, including sponsorships, insurance, permits, expenses, publicity, etc.

We are so thankful for the many supporters throughout the community who organize activities and events to support Cornerstone of Hope. They have organized activities such as Jean Days, Corn Hole Tournaments, Golf Outings, Scrabble Tournaments, Fashion Shows, and Family Picnics.  We are open to hearing any idea you have to raise money to allow grieving families to receive the services they need after a loss.  No matter the size of the event or activity, every dollar raised directly impacts the support we are able to provide for families.

Cornerstone of Hope’s mission is to provide support, education, and hope for the grieving. Please read the Fundraising Event Guidelines below and complete the required Fundraising Event Application Form.  Although Cornerstone of Hope encourages personal fundraising events, we must approve all events at least 30 days in advance. Only the personal fundraising events which support our mission will be approved.


Debbie Galland, Development Officer, manages our personal fundraisers and can be reached at 216.524.4673 or  She is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding hosting a fundraiser.


Thank you again for your interest in planning a fundraiser to benefit Cornerstone of Hope!
