Hearts in Action

Individuals and groups in our community give generously of their time, energy and resources to fundraise for CHaD. They share our mission. They care about kids. They are Hearts in Action. Ready to join them?

Hearts in Action participants have two participation types to choose from:

  1. Fundraiser - Raise money for the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD).
  2. In-Kind (Non-monetary) Donor - Donate non-cash items to CHaD (such as new books, toys, and games). If you are interested in collecting non-monetary gifts for CHaD, our CHaD Wish List details the types of toys, games, and books we need the most. Please note that, for infection control reasons, we are only able to accept new, recently purchased toys for our patients.

If you are registering a new event, CHaD Community Relations staff will follow up with you to confirm your registration within 1-2 business days. Completion of the Hearts in Action registration process does not ensure approval. You will be contacted if further information is needed.

Below are the options for being a part of a Hearts in Action event to benefit CHaD.
