We recommend that donors include a note that these donations are part of your fundraiser as well as their contact information so that we can recognize their generosity and provide them with tax deductibility information.

Are Donations Tax Deductible?

Any donation made directly to the Craig Foundation is tax deductible to the extent of the law.  Payments made to a third party fundraiser to cover expenses are not tax-deductible. We will acknowledge donations made through your page in accordance with IRS guidelines.

Do you impose any guidelines for my fundraiser?

We reserve the right to decline association with any activities or third-party fundraisers if we believe the activity does not align with our values at Craig.  If you are planning to host an in-person event (rather than an exclusively online fundraiser), please contact Caroline to discuss guidelines (303-789-8578 or ccraven@craighospital.org).  Additionally:

-All events must comply with federal, state and local laws, including fundraising rules and regulations;
-The activity will be promoted and conducted in a manner to avoid the appearance of our organization endorsing any product, firm, organization, individual or services;
-If you would like to use our logo at your event, please reach out to Jordan (303-789-8108 or james@craighospital.org) to use first for approval.  If approved, the logo may not be altered in any way.
