It’s simple: tell the Jimmy Fund what your big fundraising idea is and how to get people involved. It can be an event, an app, a product, a corporate promotion, something new on social media – anything goes!

Think big – consider all the logistics involved, including costs, planning, marketing, volunteers, and sustainability year after year. Your idea should have a goal of raising at least $100,000, and creativity counts! The judges will be examining all aspects of your idea.

GRAND PRIZE: A 7-night trip to the Caribbean, Red Sox and Patriots experience packages, and more

FINALIST PRIZES: $2,000 in gift cards, Red Sox and Patriots tickets, and more
