Let’s do this!
Choose your date, time, and location (the stand can be held at your school or another site) and register your Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Make sure the date does not conflict with other events or fundraisers. When you register, you can choose to have an event kit mailed to you. You’ll get a personal fundraising coach to help answer your questions. We’re here to help!

Do you want to hold your stand during our national fundraising event in June?

Spread the word

Let everyone know what you're doing.
When you register your stand, you’ll automatically receive an online fundraising page you can share in emails or school newsletters. Have students, parents and other participants reach out to community members to share what your class is doing. This might include putting out coin collection jars, writing letters requesting donations or sharing information about your fundraising page on social media, such as Facebook and Twitter. Remember, students as young as preschool take pride in asking people to help them raise money for other children!

You or your school's PR person may want to contact Liz Scott at [email protected]. Be sure to check out our downloads!

Hold Your Stand


The big day is here - have fun! 
Determine the supplies you will need and how to acquire them (Don’t forget the lemonade!). Students of all ages can be involved in planning or writing “persuasive letters” to obtain donations and supplies. We recommend that instead of putting a price on each cup of lemonade, simply accept donations.

Be sure to let your supporters know that you can accept checks and text donations as well as cash. Consider selling baked goods or craft items at your stand too!


That was fun, now what? 
After your stand, send your donations. You'll receive a return envelope in your event kit or you can download our form and mail it to:

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation
111 Presidential Blvd., Suite 203
​Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004

Don't forget to include your event ID number. If you can't find this number, your fundraising coach can help you out. We’ll update your personal fundraising page with your donation total. Please allow up to one month formailed donations to show up on your page.


We take your donation and use it to help fund childhood cancer research.
Researchers fill out grant applications that our expert scientific advisory board reviews and scores. The research projects with the best scores get funded.

You did it! Thank your supporters and be proud! You have made a difference for children with cancer by helping fund lifesaving research.
