How to host an event

Hosting a Fundraising Event to Benefit ProHealth

Thank you for your interest in planning an event to benefit ProHealth Care (PHC)! We appreciate your efforts to help make a difference in the lives of those we serve every day.

The funds raised from your event will help us continually improve the health of our community by providing excellent healthcare programs and facilities.  Generous financial support to the ProHealth Care Foundation make these programs and projects possible and are an important vehicle in helping further the Foundation’s mission of providing advocacy and financial support for the patients of ProHealth Care.

The Foundation supports PHC and its affiliates, including Waukesha Memorial Hospital, Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital, AngelsGrace Hospice, ProHealth Home Care and Hospice, ProHealth Medical Group and the Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin.

Although ProHealth Care Foundation actively encourages third party fundraising events, the Foundation staff must approve all events in advance and ask that all third party fundraisers abide by our Third Party Event Policy provided in this packet.  Your cooperation helps us guarantee consistency and quality in our events and our commitment to donors, patients and our community.

After reviewing the Third Party Event Policy, please complete, sign and return the Third Party Event Application to the Foundation.
