How Your Donations Are Used
There are two types of donations: cash donations and items purchased from the Amazon wishlists. Ultimately, our individual partner hospitals determine how their donations are used, but video games and consoles are generally available for patients to use in community playrooms or library systems. Donations such as books and toys are often used as gifts on birthdays and holidays, and need to be replaced frequently. In regards to cash donations, most of the money is used to purchase additional play equipment for the hospitals, including consoles and peripherals like the Wii balance board or Kinect system.
Child’s Play has three levels of sponsorship: silver, gold, and platinum. These sponsorships run for 12 months, starting in November of each year. Each includes a home page logo placement with link. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, and are always happy to participate in corporate gift matching programs.
