Third Party Fundraising Guidelines

A third-party fundraising activity is any fundraising activity or event hosted by a non-affiliated group or individual where the Lancaster General Health Foundation, Lancaster General Health, or any of their respective entities have no fiduciary responsibility and little or no staff involvement.

The path to launching a third-party fundraising activity typically begins with an idea and plan of action that is presented to the Lancaster General Health Foundation. The group or individual must complete an application and submit a signed Third Party Contract. Upon careful review, we will assist the potential organizers in examining a variety of factors to determine if in fact the proposed activity is viable. All third-party fundraising activities must be approved by the Lancaster General Health Foundation in advance. This is an important safeguard to preserving the integrity of the Lancaster General Health Foundation name and our commitment to raise the funds necessary to fulfill our mission in a cost-efficient and effective manner. While we are able to provide guidance for your activity, we do not have the personnel to handle the organizational and administrative tasks associated with third-party fundraising activities.

Therefore, the activity sponsor is responsible for the details of the activity including:

  • Underwriting all of the related costs

  • Recruiting volunteers to help with the activity

  • Creating marketing materials to publicize the activity

  • Working at the actual activity or event

  • Obtaining necessary permits/licenses for the activity

  • Managing all aspects of the fundraising activity

  • Promoting the event in the community and with local media (if appropriate)

LG Health Foundation is able to:

  • Arrange for a representative to attend an initial planning committee meeting to review our third-party fundraising guidelines and discuss designation of a gift to LG Health
  • Grant permission for use of the LG Health Foundation and/or related-entity name, if reviewed and approved on documents, web pages, etc. prior to publication
  • Arrange for a post-event check presentation/photo opportunity (pending schedule availability)
  • Provide limited brochures, pamphlets and other informational material about LG Health with 30 days advance notice
  • Arrange for representation of LG Health representative to attend the third-party event (pending schedule availability)
We appreciate your interest in fundraising for the Lancaster General Health Foundation and we look forward to working with you!  Please call us at 717.544.5513 with any questions you may have.
