Plan a Lemonade Stand

We appreciate your interest in holding a lemonade stand or other event! We are watching the evolving COVID-19 situation and are committed to keeping our supporters and their communities safe. We also are committed to funding research into new cures and services to help families of children with cancer. To balance these two things we recommend:

  • May and June events: be held virtually or follow social distance recommendations; no physical lemonade stand or events that involve close up in-person interaction.
  • Events scheduled for July or later: Comply with your state recommendations; these events may be able to happen in-person, or a member of the ALSF team can help you make the switch to a virtual or social distanced event. We will be in touch closer to your event date to see what is happening with your area and the overall status of the pandemic.

Let’s do this!
Choose your location, date and time, and register your Alex’s Lemonade Stand event. If you are hosting your event in August, please check out our nationwide event Lemonade Days. We encourage children to participate every step of the way, they will just need an adult to help them register with us. You can choose to have an event kit mailed to you and you’ll get a personal event coach to help answer your questions.  We’re here to help!

 
Spread the word

Let everyone know what you're doing.
When you register your event, you’ll also be creating your very own page on our website for your event. You can share your page with friends on social media or in emails.  It's a great way to invite people to participate or even receive donations from people who may not be able participate but still want to contribute.  Put up fliers and contact local radio, newspapers and TV stations to get the word out. For support with contacting media, contact Public Relations Specialist Rachel Simpson at [email protected]. Be sure to check out our downloads!

Hold Your Stand

The big day is here — have fun!
We suggest that instead of putting a set donation amount, simply ask for contributions of any amount. Be sure to let your supporters know that you can accept checks (payable to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation), cash, and mobile donations to your event page.

Consider adding creative ways to inspire people to give safely and virtually, such as shout outs on your social media, sending them an I.O.U. for lemonade or doing a delivery of lemonade to them.  Be creative — the sky is the limit!

Donation

That was fun, now what?
After your event, send in your donations. You'll receive a return envelope in your event kit.

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

Research

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. Check out a full list of our funded projects.
