Dress Down to Stand Up for Kids
Throughout the year, businesses and schools in the community are dressing down and raising money for Crisis Nursery. For a suggested $5 donation, participants can dress down for the day - jeans day, pajama day, jersey day, funky hat day, etc. - and wear a sticker to show support for Crisis Nursery. Since inception in 2013, this fun, easy program has raised nearly $23,000 for Crisis Nursery. Thank you to everyone in the community for your support! This year's participants include O'Brien Auto Park of Urbana, EP Technology Corporation, Martin Hood Friese & Associates, Downey Group, Cozad Asset Management, U of I Employees Credit Union, Applied Pavement Technology, Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District, Arthur Elementary School, Mahomet-Seymour Elementary, Jefferson Middle School, and Villa Grove Elementary School.

Third Party Fundraiser Guidelines
A third-party fundraising event is any activity by a non-affiliated group or individual where Crisis Nursery has no fiduciary responsibility and little or no staff involvement. A third party fundraiser is an outside group or individual that wishes to hold a promotion, event, or sale to benefit Crisis Nursery.
Third party fundraisers are a great way to collect money and goods to donate to the Nursery. We are grateful for dollars raised through events – they helped us raise more than $58,000 in fiscal year 2010! Crisis Nursery encourages third party fundraisers (i.e. golf outings, marathons, sales and donations benefitting the Nursery, etc).
If you have an idea or plan for an event that will benefit Crisis Nursery, contact Special Events Coordinator Heather Wienke to discuss your idea. We ask that all events are approved by Crisis Nursery in advance. This is an important safeguard to preserving the integrity of the Crisis Nursery name and our commitment to raise the necessary funds to fulfill our mission in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Together, we will discuss your plan and provide guidance for success. Please review our Third Party Fundraiser Guidelines and Agreement. This document will need to be signed in order to move forward with your event
Because of the volume of these requests, we cannot personally participate in each event that is proposed but will provide materials for your event about Crisis Nursery and the services we provide. As a reminder - please do not move forward with your plans until you have discussed your idea for a third party fundraiser with Special Events Coordinator. Thank you for your support of Crisis Nursery.
If you are interested in organizing an event that supports Crisis Nursery, please contact Heather Wienke at 217-337-2731 or email@example.com. Thank you for your interest and support!
