Create your own event

Online fundraising page

Turn your next special occasion into an online event with a purpose when you create your own online fundraising page.

Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, graduation, family reunion, or other meaningful occasion—consider asking friends and loved ones to honor the event by donating to Rogers Foundation. Even small amounts collected by a group can make a big impact on changing the course of mental health and addiction challenges and saving lives.

It’s easy to get started, and we’ll give you all the support and tools you need to make your fundraiser a success. Download a pdf of a step-by-step guide to creating your fundraising page through the above link.

Custom fundraising event

Rex ran 200 miles to raise awareness and support for mental health, exceeding his fundraising goal by $1,200.

The type of event you create is as limitless as your imagination. To get started, download our MyRogers Proposal Packet. Here are just a few ways former patients and families, organizations, and passionate individuals have raised funds and friends for the Foundation:
  • Swing-a-thon – Residents at Marquette University’s Cobeen Hall swing for 36.5 hours straight every year to raise awareness of eating disorders and raise funds for patients at the Rogers’ Eating Disorder Center.
  • Skate-a-thon – Three middle school girls set out to skate for a day to raise awareness of mental health challenges. They collected pledges to support their efforts, with all proceeds going to Rogers Foundation.
  • Rummage sale – One passionate mother set up a rummage sale in her local high school gymnasium. Representatives from Rogers were on hand to bring awareness to mental health challenges and proceeds were donated to Rogers Foundation.
  • Golf outing – An area corporation donated all proceeds from its annual golf outing to support the initiatives of Rogers Foundation. A check was presented to a Rogers staff member during the awards ceremony following the event.

Facebook fundraiser

It’s easy to create a fundraiser on Facebook and encourage your friends to give to a cause that matters to you.

As a non-profit organization, Rogers Foundation will receive all donations directly from Facebook. Facebook charges no fees for donations made to nonprofits, so all dollars raised will go directly to support patients and programs at Rogers.

"Give for a Better Day" Drive

When you hold a “Give for a Better Day” gift drive, you’ll bring joy to patients at Rogers.

Please direct questions to InfoFoundation@RogersBH.org.

Holiday gift drive*
Bring smiles to children, teens, and adults by holding a Holiday Gift Drive. Each year, individuals, organizations, retailers, and corporations hold clothing or toy drives for children served by a wide variety of non-profits. Many people do not realize the extent of patients at Rogers whose severity of syptoms will make it unlikely that they will return home in time for the holidays, or whose family resources will make it prohibitive to participate in the gift-giving season. View the 2022 wish list.

Coping skills drive
Patients at Rogers Behavioral Health depend on gifts from the community to make their journey to recovery easier. Donations of new, unused items or monetary gifts will help patients and their families cope with the anxiety of being in treatment.

*We make every attempt to distribute equal amount of gifts to patients. Any unused gifts will continue to be given to patients on an individual basis by their clinical team after the holidays season is over.
