Coins for Cures 2012

This spring, elementary, middle and high school students across New England will collect coins to support the young patients at Boston Children's Hospital.

Coins for Cures is a great way for students to support our patients. In just three years, participating schools have raised nearly $200,000 for Boston Children's Hospital!

The 2013 program runs March 4 - April 12.

How the program works:

  • Sign up your school online or download the information sheet and letter if you'd like to talk to your principal about the program first.
  • In February we'll send your school captain a Coins for Cures welcome kit, which includes program information, posters and a school goal chart.
  • Schools fundraise from March 4-April 12 by collecting change, hosting fundraisers, or raising funds on their fundraising webpage.
  • Each week, school captains bring change to local banks and send checks to Boston Children's Hospital. Make sure to include your school name on the memo line! Or you can bring your change to a local Coinstar® machine –– make sure to select the Coins for Cures/Boston Children's Hospital donation option, which sends your change directly to the hospital. The receipt is proof of funds raised and must be submitted to count toward your classroom's total, so be sure to take it.
  • New this year, schools will be given individual fundraising pages to help you reach your goal. Friends and family will now have the option to make online donations to support your fundraising efforts.
  • The top fundraising schools win great prizes (to be announced).
