Ways to Support & Get Involved
host a fundraiser
Consider hosting a small fundraiser like a carwash, lemonade stand or yard sale. Or if you belong to an organization that does an Annual Fundraiser, nominate Megan’s Wings to benefit from your efforts. Money donated to Megan’s Wings helps families within your city and surrounding communities pay medical and household bills so parents can take time off work to care for their sick child.
We are looking for volunteers interested in sharing their time and talents to give back to their community and help families of children with cancer. If you’re interested in volunteering at a fundraiser or family service event for Megan’s Wings, please click on the link below to fill out a volunteer application, and a Megan's Wings representative will get ahold of you soon.
If you are a business, individual or family interested in partnering with Megan's Wings to help the most vulnerable childhood cancer families thrive, we are looking for you. Due to fundraising event disruptions the last two years, we are shifting away from Event Sponsorships to more secure Program Partnerships to keep our programs well funded and running smoothly. We want pediatric cancer families to know they can count on the financial and emotional support that Megan's Wings provides. We are looking for people willing to make a one-time or annual donation to Megan's Wings in place of attending an event, so our Patient Aid, Monthly Aid, Gas Assistance, Birthday Club & Mentor Connection Programs can continue providing the critical services families of children with cancer depend on.

Individual and Family
Business or Organization
Megan's Wings collaborates with other non-profit to offer emotional support services for families. We're looking for volunteers who have been affected by cancer and interested in mentoring a parent or sibling of a child in treatment for cancer. Mentors, who have shared experiences going through the trauma of a loved ones cancer journey, can provide a new parent or child understanding, friendship and shared experiences. Siblings of kids with cancer can feel isolated and alone. We work with an organization that matches siblings with a mentor whose walked in their shoes with their loved one and can offer friendship and someone to attend fun activities with (both in person and through zoom). Similarly, parents of children finished with treatment can share their experience and be sounding board to a parent of a newly diagnosed child. Sometimes parents and kids just need to know they are not alone. If this interests you, please let us know you'd like to learn more about Mentoring a child or parent on our Volunteer form below.

Become a mentor
Blood or precious bone marrow
Cancer treatment can take weeks or months, and may require numerous blood transfusions. Donating a pint of blood once a year or more is a small sacrifice that could mean life itself to a child with cancer. Please contact your nearest hospital, blood bank or red cross to become a donor.
Bone Marrow transplants are the only hope of survival for thousands of children with certain forms of cancer. If you are between 18 and 60 years of age and in good health, you can be tested, and your name can be added to the National Registries. For more information, talk to your local blood bank or hospital.
Rally your club, business or church group to host a toy drive, gas card drive, or birthday gift card drive for our care programs. Hold a pancake breakfast with your club and donate the proceeds. Girl Scout or other organizations can collect and donate single serving food and drink items to help us stock the Pantry at City of Hope. Collect arts and crafts, knit some beanie hats or make tie blankets for our Hope Boxes. Got an idea? We’d love to hear it! Contact us at (909) 532-8135 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
